About Us

The Robert H. Smith School of Business’s goal has always been to produce students who are ready to thrive in an ever-changing world; every facet of our school is dedicated to ensuring students are prepared to navigate an environment that is always becoming more competitive and interconnected, where the bar for success is always rising and opportunities appear and vanish at a lightning-fast rate.

One of 12 colleges at the University of Maryland in College Park, Smith utilizes its proximity to Washington D.C. to guarantee a variety of opportunities for everyone in our halls. Not only are we connected to local and international business networks, but we are growing increasingly more involved with government, nonprofit, and professional networks within the metropolitan area.

We cultivate a culture that fosters achievement; our community of world-class faculty and staff are behind our students every step of their journeys – there will never again be a point in their lives where so many are so totally dedicated to their success. They form the backbone of the Smith School; our broad range of programs is fully supported by their experience and skill.

However, our greatest asset is and continues to be our students. They are the lifeblood of the Smith School, and it is up to them to take advantage of the opportunities and resources we present them with. To be a Smith student is to understand your values and worth, to have purpose in your pursuits and be unafraid to engage with everything College Park has to offer. It is to be ready to face whatever challenges the world may bring. Ready? Then let’s get to work!

To learn more about how our supportive community, extensive connections, and experienced network of faculty and staff will push you to thrive, contact the Smith School at 301-405-2189.
