Today, I’m beaming with pride about the beautiful work my colleagues are doing to help educate our friends across the entire University of Maryland’s College Park campus. Business acumen is so universal – people in any job can benefit from learning basic business skills like project management, customer service, negotiations, strategic thinking, and communications.

We have a program called the UMD-Smith Leadership Academy. This is the third year for the program, but the first time that it is open to all staff at College Park. It is highly competitive – only 30 spots! Today was the last information session and I attended it to write up a short news story to promote the June 30 application deadline.

There are a few reasons why I’m so excited about this program:

  1. It’s like a mini-MBA taught by some of the BEST PROFESSORS IN THE WORLD, including deans and department chairs!
  2. These professors are VOLUNTEERING their time for this program. Isn’t that so cool?
  3. It’s FREE. There is just a nominal fee to cover materials and food costs.
  4. You get to work on REAL-WORLD UMD CHALLENGES and make a major impact.
