First intake begins next January; program can be completed in 21 months

The Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland has announced that it is launching an online MBA program starting in January 2014.

The bulk of the distance learning program will be based on weekly "synchronous" (or live) online sessions, combined with coursework that students can do on their own time. During the live sessions, students will log-in to an online system, where they can interact with their classmates and faculty.

The program will also include two on-campus residencies.

Students in Smith's online MBA program will be able to select from four specializations: Accounting, Information Systems and Analytics, Finance or Marketing.

Applications are now being accepted. For more information, please see the Smith press release announcing the launch of the online MBA program, or Smith's online MBA program homepage.
