This past summer, students in Smith’s Flex MBA program worked on consulting projects with top organizations, including Google, Major League Baseball, Allegiant Air, and the Maryland Department of Veteran Affairs. They traveled to New York, Las Vegas, and in and around Washington, D.C., to present findings to clients, who were “quite impressed,” said Roy Thomason, who organized the projects as a lecturer in Smith’s management and organization department.
“It’s moving to me that our project will in some small way impact the future of veteran care. Isn’t that what we all want in life, to leave our corner of the world a little better than we found it?”
The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business is launching a new master’s program ideal for recent graduates from any academic background and professionals in any industry seeking a time- and cost-efficient means to develop their foundational business skills.
Students in the Robert H. Smith School of Business's Global Consulting Fellows program "traveled" virtually to Italy recently to connect with their corporate clients – Garmont, a recreational footwear company; D.B. Group, a freight forwarding company, and Fantic Motor, a motorcycle, e-bike and e-scooter company.
