MBA Roundtable Fast Track Innovation Award

Global Recognition for A Maryland Smith ‘Pandemic Pivot’

We are so honored to be awarded with the 2020 Fast Track Curriculum Innovation Award winner. The MBA Roundtable cites the impact consulting fellowship program as an "Innovative Response to COVID".

Here’s an excerpt from a recent BizED announcement of the awards, Pivoting in a Pandemic:

The Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland in College Park took home the prize for Other Innovation for its impact consulting fellowship. Twenty-three teams, each consisting of two master’s students and three undergraduates, were placed with University of Maryland alumni to provide pro bono consulting for two months during the pandemic. The consulting opportunity was made available to nonprofit organizations, B Corporations, and for-profit impact-driven organizations… [The MBA Roundtable’s] Award winners were evaluated on their levels of creativity, the uniqueness of their solutions, the speed at which they implemented their innovations, their resourcefulness in using existing tools or working within budgetary constraints, the innovation’s impact on students, the level of engagement across the university, and the repeatability and scalability of the initiatives.
