Hailed for their convenience, online MBA program offerings are growing. The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business launched its own accredited degree program in January of this year and continues to draw students. How will this new method of MBA degree delivery impact the industry?

In this issue of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, host Jeff Salkin sits down with Gary Cohen to talk about the importance of the online MBA degree program.

As assistant dean of executive education, Cohen heads up the Smith School’s online MBA program. He also leads the school’s executive MBA programs in College Park, Md. and China; custom degree offerings; and the design and development of customized and open-enrollment non-degree programs offered by the Smith School.
