Professionals seeking an MBA in the greater Washington and Baltimore regions have a new option.
The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business has designed and opened a new Flex MBA program, providing versatile — in-person and online — access to a curriculum augmented with special topic seminars and completable within 24 months through the school’s Baltimore, Rockville and Washington locations.
Versatility keys the new design. Students can select the pace and location that best suits their career goals, says Paulo Prochno, Maryland Smith’s assistant dean for part-time MBA and online programs.
Students can tailor their program to the industry-focus areas of each location. For Baltimore, it’s general management, finance (investment), and innovation and project management. General management is the focus for Rockville and Washington’s primary focus areas are general management, finance (corporate), and digital marketing.
In addition to the core and elective courses, Flex MBA students will participate in Business Decoded Saturday Seminars led by Maryand Smith professors. The sessions will explore timely developments in the most relevant topics for business decision makers.
Maryland Smith will livestream Flex MBA information sessions customized for each off-campus location – each at 6 p.m. – for Baltimore on Feb. 9; Rockville on Feb. 16; and Washington on Feb. 24.
