The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business is launching a new master’s program for recent graduates from any academic background and professionals in any industry seeking a time- and cost-efficient means to develop their foundational business skills.
This Online Master of Science in Management Studies (OMiM) provides students with a broad set of business management knowledge to complement their passions, including how to lead effective teams, market products and make smart business decisions based on data.
The first cohort begins in Fall 2023, and the 30-credit program can be completed in 12 months. The instruction format is largely asynchronous but also involves live interaction with professors.
Students will learn innovative ways of handling workplace challenges and will have the opportunity to refine their strategic thinking skills and develop essential business acumen through designated experiential learning classes that feature mentoring from MIM Advisory Council members.
"The program will position students to excel as leaders in any industry —especially those that require adaptability, creativity and quick thinking,” said the program’s director, Associate Professor of Management Rellie Derfler-Rozin.
