Since the fall of 2001, the Robert H. Smith School of Business of the University of Maryland, College Park began enrolling students in four majors at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG)- the University System of Maryland's new concept for higher education."The only difference between studying business in the Smith School at College Park and at USG is location.
The competitive admission requirements, outstanding faculty and curriculum, student academic advising and career services and
the degree awarded will be the same," said Patricia Cleveland,Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Studies at the Smith School.
Admission to the Smith School undergraduate program is competitive as capacity is limited at both College Park (CP) and USG.With the exception of "early admission" to our program at USG the Smith School admission standards are essentially the same for CP and USG.
