About The Smith EMBA Program
Ranked No. 2 in the world by The Economist, Smith faculty develop the management techniques that influence and shape global business practice and public policy. Many consult with the world’s leading corporations and have significant international expertise. They bring that experience into the classroom and put proven concepts into real-world context, providing an Executive MBA
experience few business schools can match.
Even before you start class, you’ll begin the executive assessment process, which identifies both your strengths and your areas for improvement.

The data gathered in this process is then used to pair you with an executive coach, who works closely with you throughout the entire program. This leadership development process is among the most robust in the world, and truly sets the Smith School apart.
With over 6,000 Chinese alumni and 60,000 alumni worldwide, the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business has one of the most powerful networks of business leaders in the world. Whether you need industry connections or a mentor to share career insights, Smith students and alumni love to support each other.
Rigor and balance are the main drivers of the Executive MBA curriculum. Rigor stems from traditionally demanding core courses — taught from an executive perspective — that make up the foundation of business practice. Balance is achieved through carefully selected mastery sessions, which are supplemental seminars that provide cross-functional perspectives drawn from organizational and social theories.

The program taught by experts in their respective fields, mastery sessions include such topics as developing high-performance teams, managing conflict and creative problem-solving. This approach results in not only a balanced perspective, but a balanced workload.

The quality of the University of Maryland's Executive MBA program is among the best. As a student, I learned from experienced professors who are leaders in their field, worked with a cohort of engaged and driven students, and-perhaps the most valuable-I learned in a dynamic and international classroom setting.

Graduating from the Executive MBA program at the Robert H. Smith School of Business has enhanced my career over the last 10 years. It enabled me to experience top-quality Executive MBA teaching form a US institution and to acquire a comprehensive understanding of corporate control and business development.

Because the program is delivered solely in English, it enhanced my overall business communication skills and my ability to conduct international business.

      None of the course is done online. However, some pre-work of certain courses like Accounting, Finance and Data Modeling etc. will be assigned on-line and requested to finish before you physically meet with your professor.
    • When do classes meet?
      Classes are held 4 days per month, from Thursdays to Sundays 8 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
    • Where are classes held?
      Classes are held at the Keyan Building on the campus of University of International Business and Economics campus.
    • What about homework?
      You will spend approximately 15 hours during both pre-and post–course periods, depending on your background knowledge and English proficiency.
    • What happens when, due to business travel, I will miss part of the class?

    • What are the required qualifications?
      Applicants are required to hold at least a 4-year Bachelor degree with minimum of a 3.0 GPA, and between eight and twenty years of professional experience and significant management experience with demonstrated English proficiency. Each candidate will be reviewed as a unique individual and the sum of his or her experiences evaluated during the admissions process.
    • Do I have to take the GMAT?
      The GMAT is not a mandatory requirement. Because we limit the size of each class to approximately 40 participants, we are able to evaluate each applicant on an individual and very personal basis. However, applicants must demonstrate an ability to successfully complete quantitative course work. Candidates without demonstrated success in undergraduate or graduate quantitative course work may be asked to demonstrate abilities in other ways (e.g., GMAT).
    • Are there any pre-skill courses I can take to be ready for the program?
      We require that you complete prep courses in finance, accounting, statistics and business mathematics. You will successfully complete an online exam in each area prior to the start of the program. Information regarding these learning modules will be sent via mail once a deposit is received.
    • If I cannot join the class I applied for, do I have to go through the application process again for the next year?
      This program builds one cohort each year. If you miss the current cohort, you can join the cohort next year without going through the application process. However, a formal request of deferral should be made to the school beforehand. If you want to join the cohort the third year, you have to go through the application again. All students have five years within which to complete all degree requirements and graduate from the program. Tuition of the new cohort will be applicable.
    • Who in my company should I talk to about sponsoring me?
      Choosing to take part in an Executive MBA program is about your own personal growth, as well as how your participation can help the company grow. Seek out support at the highest levels – not just your immediate supervisor – and be ready to point out the extra benefits of the Smith Executive Program, specifically the Action Learning Project.
    • How do I explain the program benefits to my company?
      While most executive education programs talk about students being able to immediately apply newfound knowledge to workplace situations, Smith makes such a connection even more immediate and relevant. From the start, the Action Learning Project allows participants to tackle a real time issue facing their company as part of their coursework. The company will have a team of Executive MBA students and Smith faculty applying knowledge and manpower to company issues. This is more than just an immediate return on investment from the sponsored employee – the company is essentially receiving full-blown consulting services at a minimal price. In addition, the Mastery coursework will have an immediate impact on your managerial and leadership skills.
    • What is the cost of the EMBA Program?
      Executive MBA tuition for May 2020 is $85,000 USD. Tuition is all-inclusive and covers all books and required materials, student and administrative fees. It also includes the cost of hotel accommodations, most meals and transportations during the program for the Residency & Graduation week.
