Visitors Program

On-Campus Visits with Smith Ambassadors

Prospective students are invited to come and visit Smith this Spring! During one of our Visitors Program events, attendees will visit a class, have lunch with current students, and will attend presentations from our admissions team, a current student, and our Office of Career Services. Those in attendance will also receive an application fee waiver. One admitted student that attends a Visitors Program will receive a $20,000 scholarship!

These visits are a great opportunity to experience our diverse learning environment and to witness the top-notch instruction by our faculty. Having the opportunity to meet with current Smith MBA's is also an invaluable chance for candidates to view the program from the perspective of a current student. We believe that the best way for candidates to learn about our program here at Smith is to experience it first hand. Sign up for a Visitors Program to experience it for yourself!

Market Forecasting

In this course, students will learn a number of market forecasting methods, each appropriate for different contexts. The majority of this course focuses on quantitative modeling techniques based on established statistical methods. We also cover non-statistical methods that are often used when empirical data is scarce. This is a very hands-on class where students will apply the forecasting methods learned to real data.
