Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsored by the Office of Career Services at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business in cooperation with MBA student leaders, the Smith School Business Summit provides an opportunity for the entire Smith School community to engage in compelling discussions on current trends and strategies.

The event attracts students and faculty from all disciplines as well as entrepreneurs, nonprofit and corporate leaders, philanthropists, and the local community. Students interact directly with industry leaders, professionals, and corporate sponsors throughout sessions, and also during the networking reception.

As a Summit sponsor you will: interact with hundreds of University of Maryland students, be promoted to a broad professional network, have the opportunity to be featured in person at the event and through social media, and have the ability to leverage content long after the Summit has come to a close.
