Who We Are
Founded in Fall 2002, the Part-time MBA Association (PTMBAA) represents part-time students at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. This organization serves the interests of graduate business students on the Shady Grove, Washington, Baltimore, and online campuses.
The mission of the Part-time MBA Association is to serve as a representative, governing body for the part-time students of the Robert H. Smith School of Business. The PTMBAA speaks as the coordinated voice of the students, serving as liaisons to the administration and faculty of the University of Maryland. The PTMBAA works on behalf of the students to improve the quality of education, academic support, and professional offerings they receive. Additionally, the PTMBAA helps to foster a greater sense of community within its four part-time and online campuses and within the larger Smith family, including better coordination with full-time students and alumni. The PTMBAA works to promote the Robert H. Smith School of Business as the dominant business school in the area.
