About Us

Welcome to Maryland Smith Executive Education and Lifelong Learning!  Our comprehensive and practical approach to executive learning engages participants, organizational champions and leaders in multi-modal learning and action learning experiences. Now, more than ever, learning is at a moment's notice and we relish building and designing programs that meet the needs of individuals, teams and organizations. Our programs create those rare opportunities for stepping back from daily responsibilities, re-evaluating priorities, and refueling for the future. You and your teams will return to the “office” energized with fresh insights on professional and personal strengths, strategies for success, and a global network of peers whose challenges mirror their own.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss your needs and the broader needs of your organization.  We listen, we iterate and we build together. From micro-learning to workshops, to complete leadership development programs, we will work alongside you to create graduate-level management education programs that will influence mindsets, change behaviors, increase knowledge, enhance capabilities, expand possibilities and deliver enterprise-wide growth. We can't wait to work with you!

Forever learn,
