Executive MBA: Inspired learning for a complex world

Professionals who want to succeed in the global economy need more than an impressive resume and years of on-the-job experience.

To thrive in today’s highly competitive marketplace, business leaders need the knowledge, skills and determination to continually learn and grow. They need to be able to apply systemic thinking to the complex challenges their organizations face. And they need a strong network of peers and coaches they can count on for insight and advice.

The Executive MBA program at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland builds systems thinking into an academically rigorous curriculum rooted in the realities of the marketplace.

Our 19-month Executive MBA program is designed for executives with eight to 10+ years of professional experience, and at least three years of management experience.

The only school in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., area with top-ranked undergraduate and graduate business programs, our classes are held all day Friday and Saturday every other weekend, with two residencies of one week – one at the beginning and one at the end of the program.

We produce graduates who are analytical, resourceful, innovative, hard-working and passionate. They are prepared and determined to manage complex problems, find entrepreneurial solutions, and succeed.

In a global marketplace driven by sweeping social and economic forces, and by rapid and continual advances in technology, the Smith School of Business is preparing smart, savvy business leaders who can handle change, think on their feet, work collaboratively, and improve the markets and communities they serve.
