Smith School of Business. The invitation-only event was attended by 40 prospective students from across the U.S. who are being considered for admission to the Smith School’s Full-Time MBA program.
Nearly 100 full-time MBA students tackled their first real-world business challenge Aug. 23-25, 2017, during the third annual MBA Orientation Live Case Competition at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. “This competition will slingshot you into your MBA program,” said Smith School professor Neta Moye, who designed the experiential learning activity with representatives from PepsiCo. “It will ratchet up your learning curve.”
Teams Go from Zero to Grand Opening in Two Weeks
Orientation starts with a shock for incoming full-time MBA students looking for traditional lectures at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. Instead of talking about business, orientation leaders divide students into teams and tell them to start one.
Forty-five second-year MBA students at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business traveled to Maple Tree Campground in Rohrersville, Md., for a weekend of camping and team-building activities, Sept. 6-8, 2013.

Women are starting to catch up to their male counterparts in MBA programs as well as the business community. Getting an MBA is a crucial part in advancing your career to an executive level; especially for women. It is ever so important to inform women of their academic options as more and more women apply and enroll into business schools. Therefore, we have tailored a special event for women that are considering pursuing an MBA degree.
