Choose Your Education Wisely

Build on what you already know.

When it comes to educational options—and there are many out there—you have to choose the right path. One that helps you build on what you already know. And one that lets you establish yourself as a leader in your firm and within the A/E/C industries. A few years ago, it wasn’t so easy to find that type of graduate-level curriculum, one that specifically caters to your profession. That’s why, in 2010, SMPS began a partnership with the University of Maryland and established SMPS University: Leadership Advancement Program.We wanted to create a program that truly focused on marketing and business development in the A/E/C industries.

SMPS U is taught by some of the best faculty in the country, from University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. We’re really excited to offer this unique program, which sharpens business management concepts and best practices, such as research and development, finance, human resources, and leadership, to name a few.

The knowledge you’ll walk away with is amazing, prepping you for the next level in your career and helping your firm in terms of profitability.I really hope you’ll join the Class of 2017. You can learn more by visiting the SMPS University page. We have the curriculum and schedule online, as well as more details about the University of Maryland faculty. For more information on this program, feel free to reach out to me, and I’d be happy to answer any questions.
