[photopress:koerwer_atrium.jpg,full,alignright]Scott Koerwer, the associate dean of the Robert H Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, is on a mission to China to promote his school among potential MBA students. Robert H Smith is known for its technology-driven curriculum.
Scott Koerwer said that after education, having access to technology is the most important precondition for innovation and competition within a marketplace.
He said that these two are essential ingredients in the construction of an ‘innovative society.’ He rates education above technology.
Scott Koerwer has been driving Robert H Smith’s global expansion ever since he joined the school in 2001. He took his current post after leaving the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, where he was a senior director responsible for Executive MBA education. Under his direction, Robert H Smith now offers degrees in conjunction with partners in China and many other countries.
He said, ‘China is critical to our school. There are more people who are eligible for MBA studies than the whole American population. The world has 300 million Americans, but 350 million Chinese who have the potential to become MBA students.’
