New Flex MBA for Part-Time Students at Maryland Smith
The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business launched a new Flex MBA program through the school’s Baltimore, Rockville, and Washington, D.C. locations. Students can complete the curriculum, either online or in-person, in 24 months.
The new Maryland Smith Flex MBA program is designed for students with five to eight years of professional experience. The same faculty as the full-time MBA program will also be delivering the curriculum.
Paulo Prochno, Maryland Smith’s assistant dean for part-time MBA and online programs, spoke more about the program. “Students can select the pace and location that best suits their career goals,” he says. “The looming return to full, in-person classes intensifies the significance for MBA programs to accommodate, at a high level of quality, wide-ranging needs and preferences in terms of learning style and job requirements affecting availability.”
In addition to the core and elective courses, Maryland Smith Flex MBA students will participate in Business Decoded Saturday Seminars led by Maryland Smith professors. “The seminars will showcase the latest research to reveal what’s just on the horizon of business,” Prochno says. “Plus, these sessions also are open to alumni, providing the students with increased networking opportunities.”
Each location offers a different industry focus. In Baltimore, students can choose among General Management, Finance (Investment), and Innovation and Project Management. General Management is the focus for Rockville. And, Washington, D.C.’s primary focus areas are General Management, Finance (Corporate), and Digital Marketing.
