The Robert H. Smith School of Business has expanded its reputation as a research and knowledge hub with top-25 showings in three recent worldwide rankings.
On March 28, 2014, at the North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, Md., students, faculty and business professionals met for the third annual Smith School Business Summit. This year’s theme looked at innovation as an essential building block for the prosperity and survival of corporations. With more than 600 registered attendants, it was the largest Summit yet.
Smith School of Business Professor Lawrence A. Gordon recently co-developed a formula to determine how much a company should invest in cybersecurity. Now, he targets University of Maryland honors students with this innovation.
His course, Accounting and Economic Aspects of Cybersecurity, introduces financial management principles to a discipline grounded in computer science and engineering.
Congratulations to the Top Graduating Seniors in each major for 2013-14! We will honor these seniors at our 14th Annual Robert H. Smith School of Business Undergraduate Awards Dinner later this semester.
