While attention focuses on the October 1 launch of a nationwide "health insurance marketplace," the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business has provided expertise behind the scenes of this Affordable Care Act milestone.
Classes started this week for the second cohort of the UMD-Smith Leadership Academy. However, some thought last Friday’s orientation was an exciting kickoff and served as the unofficial launch of the program.
The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) is partnering with the Center for Excellence in Service (CES) for the third consecutive year, to offer the 2013 leadership advancement program. The program, to be held on October 17-18, and November 14-15, is designed for A/E/C marketers and business developers to help them gain the business knowledge they need to advance their careers.
If all goes to plan, six Smith School of Business MBA students will have helped create 290 full-time jobs in northern and eastern Sri Lanka – the regions most devastated by a 25 year civil war. And it only took them three weeks.
