Smith/UMD Get Entrepreneurial with Financial Crisis

Last week’s Potomac Techwire highlighted (see image) just how entrepreneurial business schools themselves are. In the face of the financialpicture-77 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.
