Smith Welcomes New Part-Time MBA Students

The Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland opened its doors to its newest class of part-time MBA students on Aug. 18 for the 2012 orientation.

Some of Smith’s busiest students, this group of MBAs are students part-time and employed full-time. Because of that, their classes can take place on evenings during the week or on a full day of class on Saturday.

To get them used to this new and busy schedule, part-time orientation was held on a Saturday and was packed full of information about their years to come as members of the Smith community.
