Appearing Now: Premier Business Speakers

When Darlene Smith became Merrick‘s dean last year, one of her goals was to host a top-notch speaker series for our students and the Baltimore business community.

That number is up from eight, as revealed by last year’s BBJ list, making the University the leading area source for top-level managerial accounting talent.
