[photopress:RobertSmith_1.jpg,full,alignright]The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business today announced the launch of Smith Business Intelligence in China — a free, online source of research articles, and videos and audio downloads that deliver business management knowledge and best practices in English, Mandarin and simplified Chinese.
Business professionals can go to Robert H. Smith to stay ahead of topics covering management-critical areas and to sign up to receive Smith’s quarterly e-newsletter, Leading the Digital Economy.
Steve Feld, executive director of professional programs and services at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, said, ‘By offering Smith Business Intelligence on a multimedia platform we make keeping current on the trends and issues shaping global business more convenient for Chinese-speaking business professionals.’
These video and audio downloads are about business research and other management topics. Users can download five-minute video and audio clips to digital devices, such as iPods and MP3 players, or can view and listen to the segments online.
Howard Frank, dean of the Robert H. Smith School of Business, said, ‘The management knowledge developed by the Smith School’s centers of excellence and created by our faculty drives business change and empowers business leaders.
The University of Maryland’s Executive MBA in China (offering locations in both Beijing and Shanghai) is like the Smith School’s domestic executive MBA program which prepares graduates to lead organizations in an economy fueled by technology, globalization and new venture opportunity. Graduates receive an MBA degree from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.
The Smith Executive MBA in China is a 54-credit program (same as the University of Maryland’s domestic MBA and EMBA). Students meet approximately once a month for four consecutive days.
