High School Programs

Smith is committed to helping local students explore their interest in pursuing a career in business, and learn more about life at the University of Maryland.

If you’re a talented high school student seeking hands-on experience with business education, please explore our high school programs and find a program that fits you! Keep in mind some of the programs are in conjunction with area high schools and are offered only once a year.

Prince George’s High School Case Competition

Each year, the Smith undergraduate program partners with the Omega Theta chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity to sponsor a case competition compromised of students from our local Prince George’s County high schools. This is an invitation-only event, and we look forward to hosting more talented students in Spring 2022.
