Customize for Your Career with Specializations

Specializations allow you to tailor your MBA education to the career path you want to pursue. You’ll have the flexibility to choose and combine specializations in five areas.

Specializations are built through offerings of electives and thus may be subject to change. 

AI and Business Strategy

Want to lead in the tech industry, or have a leadership position in a technology function? Learn to strategically harness AI for competitive advantage while centering decisions around informed human judgment.

Entrepreneurship and Innovation

Discover the best ways to bring innovation to market, thrive in the current entrepreneurial ecosystem, and take advantage of the resources at the renowned Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship.

Learn the principles of effective brand and product management. Gain proficiency with the latest in-demand marketing concepts and tools, including AI and digital marketing, while also developing strong knowledge of consumer behavior.


Address the complex challenges of sustainability in business and management. You’ll also gain the ability to provide thoughtful, clear-eyed analysis of environmental policies and their connection to changing socio-economic conditions.


Acquire expertise that will allow you to work in various client settings and industry functions, broaden your perspective and develop a multifaceted approach to business issues. This specialization equips students with the knowledge and skills to define the problems or opportunities that businesses face, identify a recommended course of action, and plan the implementation of that solution across the company.

Get Hands-On Learning Experience

Our MBA program will provide you with opportunities to work with real companies to solve the types of complex challenges you'll face in the business world. Our Experiential Learning Opportunities (ELPs) enhance your collaborative leadership capabilities, demonstrate the impact of classroom learning and allow you to hone skills you will use throughout your career. As an MBA student, you'll also have the opportunity to get hands-on experience managing the Mayer Fund, the Smith School's $7 million professional management fund. We draw on deep relationships with companies across many industries, including:

  • Defense
  • Finance
  • Hospitality
  • Nonprofit Organizations

MBA Advisory Council

Advisory Councils keep us actively engaged with industry leaders and experts, who bring their real-world experience to help shape what students learn, match classroom lessons to real-world needs and widen the pipeline for internship and job opportunities.


Turn Your MBA into a Tech MBA

Turn your MBA degree into a Tech MBA by taking courses through the Graduate Certificate in Technology Management program. With a Tech MBA, you'll get a comprehensive overview of how technology is created, managed and cultivated within teams. The certificate can be completed as your second-year elective track, and is taught by faculty from Smith School of Business, the Clark School of Engineering and the School of Public Policy.

Courses for the Tech Management Certificate are held at our DC campus every other weekend and supplemented by self-paced online work. Students can attend these electives without conflict with other full-time MBA courses. The DC campus is easily accessible from College Park by metro.

Learn from Top Faculty

At Smith you’ll learn from and connect with dynamic faculty members who stand at the top of their field. They regularly serve as consultants for large financial institutions, multinational corporations and government agencies. And in the classroom, they’ll share those same techniques they use to help corporate clients implement their own data-driven decision making.

The Smith School’s faculty expertise in analytics, optimization, and operations management and in new fields like data science and blockchain, helps students develop contemporary tools and frameworks for better decision-making in any industry.

Twenty-four Smith professors are in the top 2% of the most-cited scholars and scientists worldwide -- which means other professors go to our professors for knowledge, and that you have access to the best of the best.

Take Advantage of Career Resources

Fearless and fierce, they know what they want out of their careers. When they come together as a team, nothing can stand in their way.

I was a marketing analyst for a fitness company, and after meeting with executives and other members of the C-Suite, I realized I needed to learn how business worked holistically. What brought me to Smith was the ability to pair my MBA degree with an MS in marketing analytics degree. That experience made Smith the total package for me.
