Last week’s Potomac Techwire highlighted (see image) just how entrepreneurial business schools themselves are. In the face of the financial crisis and the shift in financial power from NY to DC, the Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland is now offering a Masters of Science in Business: Finance.
This MS in Finance is beginning in the Fall of 2009. The page describing the program notes: “Classes are held at the Ronald Reagan Building in downtown Washington, D.C., within walking distance of the White House, U.S. Department of Treasury headquarters, and other important Washington landmarks.”
I guess it makes sense for those who are taking over the economy to learn something about finance! Maybe Geithner’s bad bank will eventually come out of a class project .
Good on you UMD for being entrepreneurial at a time when we are being told that only the Federal Government can save us.
