A Message from the Dean
MS degree from the Robert H. Smith School of Business can open doors. In as few
as nine months, you will receive a quality, focused education with specialized
knowledge that will make you an asset to any organization.
We offer MS degrees in five areas – accounting,
finance, information systems,
supply chain management and – beginning in fall 2013
– marketing analytics, to respond to the growing need
for those who can understand and interpret “big data.”
Students in our MS programs are taught by the same world-renowned faculty
that teach in our MBA programs. Our close proximity to the
nation’s capital creates educational and networking opportunities beyond the
classroom, with many community building activities and experiences that lead to
personal growth and lifelong friendships. You’ll also have access to our
Office of Career Services, to help you accelerate your job
Whether you’re a global citizen studying abroad for the first time or a
domestic student with previous work experience seeking to target your career,
this is the place for you – and the advancement opportunity you’ve been looking
for. I’m glad you’ve chosen to explore your options at Smith. And I hope you’ll
allow us to prepare you to impact the world in a remarkable way.
