On April 26, 2018, the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business celebrated 24 outstanding seniors graduating from the highly-selective Smith Business Honors program.
What’s the appeal of being accepted into one of the most competitive programs at the Robert H. Smith School of Business? Why do rising upperclassmen strive to earn above 3.5 cumulative GPA just be considered?
On Monday, April 18, 2016, the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business hosted the annual Smith Business Honors Convocation dinner at the Riggs Alumni Center to celebrate graduating seniors and welcome newly admitted Business Honors students.
Thank you for your interest in the Business Honors program!

To better serve our undergraduate students, the Business Honors program will not be accepting new students for the 2018-19 academic year as we revisit our program offerings.
