The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business welcomed 19 new doctoral students to its eight individual business programs in fall 2011, making total enrollment in the program 100. The incoming class is diverse and hails from around the world, including the U.S., China, Korea, India, and France.
These bright new students bring their academic knowledge and skills from schools such Columbia University, Ohio State University, University of Michigan, Tsinghua University, Seoul National University, and the University of Maryland.
The students have been acclimating themselves to Van Munching Hall, the University of Maryland and D.C., as well as diving in to the research projects with our distinguished faculty and veteran students. The fall 2011 incoming class will surely contribute to the success of the Robert H. Smith School of Business PhD Program, says Dr. Amna Kirmani, director of the PhD program and professor of marketing.
