Message from the Dean
Everyone who pursues an MBA has big dreams. Some dream about becoming leaders
in global business. Others want to change their career path. Still others seek to
build the business of their dreams. But you all imagine and reach for something
bigger than yourselves.
The Robert H. Smith School of Business will help turn your dreams into reality.
At Smith, you’ll grow your leadership abilities in a community of collaborative
competition. As a full-time MBA student, you’ll partner with your classmates and
with the faculty and staff to sculpt your future. With access to a variety of research
centers, services, clubs and even intramural sports, you can shape your experience
to benefit you and the world around you.
Our dream at the Smith School is to see our graduates impact the world as agents
of both economic prosperity and transformative social change. An MBA will give you
the knowledge and ability to pursue your dream career and grapple with society’s
most pressing challenges. I’m glad you’ve chosen to explore your options at Smith.
Join us in building your future—we’ll show you how, from the ground up.
