"I have had an outstanding graduate experience so far at University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business. I have 27 credits out of the needed 52 and am looking forward to my next round of classes, as all of the classes have been immediately applicable to my career. I particularly liked the accounting course and professor. I have finally learned how to read and interpret annual reports and financial statements, which I wish I would have learned as an undergraduate."

"For the EMBA program the professors are so incredible and the classes so much fun that I love going to class on weekends. This program is well rounded and balanced and I look forward to the coming months. It is definitely rigorous and not for the faint of heart in terms of time commitment and dedication."

"Most of the professors are highly skilled and have experience with real world applications. Even though this is an evening program, the atmosphere in the classroom is generally one of collaboration with a strong desire to learn. First years are enrolled as a cohort and spend the next year taking core classes together. This further expands on the collaborative nature in the classroom and allows students to feel comfortable expressing opinions with each other."

The nature of in class discussions reflect a learning environment elevated by peer review and analysis, in other woods be prepared to defend your opinion in a highly rational, data driven, and articulate manner. The professors are top caliber academics from renowned universities and they hold their students to high performance standards and expectations. Assuming you are willing to put in the time and work to accelerate your career, in short the program will quickly get you in gear with the skill set and knowledge needed to succeed in the modern business world ."

"I enjoy the flexibility of the Part Time program at UMD and their centralized location of their DC Campus. They could improve on their international business focus. Overall I believe they offer a great program that is competitive with all the other MBA programs in the area."

"The Smith School is very prestigious, but some of the professors are not at this caliber level. Other professors bring real life experience to the table which is exceedingly useful. The workload can be rigorous but it is do-able with a full time job."

"UMD has one of the most expansive network of alumni available and is seated directly next to Washington D.C. This creates a unique opportunity to tap into opportunities that would otherwise be inaccessable. The program however does lean towards the expensive side. If one is to begin the program they need to have a long term vision that they believe will be accomplished through an MBA."

"The University of Maryland offers a variety of part-time programs to help fit into a working professionals life. The new weekend part-time program allows me to go to school 2 Saturdays a month and participate in 2 study abroad programs and finish in 2 years. The structure of this program was extremely attractive to considering I work Monday-Friday. However, with this being the initial program there are a few kinks to be worked out, but overall I am satisfied withe the program and the staff!"

More important than anything else the class makes the experience very unique and enjoyable. We are competitive yet collaborative. We challenge each other to achieve great things yet we all serve as resources and a support system for one another. Enjoying every moment of it"
