The latest cohort of executive MBA students began their 19-month journey to earning their degrees last week (Jan. 18, 2013) at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. The 41 students are the 13th group to start the program since the Smith School launched its EMBA degree in 2002. This year’s class is the largest cohort the Smith School has recruited yet, as applications to have been increasing steadily for the past four years.
