Still #1, Six Years and Counting


Eleven of the 25 largest accounting firms in the Baltimore area are headed by graduates of the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business and the UB School of Law—repeating yet again the University's rank as the single largest producer of top-level managerial accounting talent for area firms. The results were announced in the Baltimore Business Journal's 2013 Book of Lists.

UB has held the top slot in the list for at least six years in a row; the school has a decades-long track record of producing high-performing accountants, many of whom have inspired their firms to new levels of growth and impact in the regional market.

Business Professors Take on a Key Technology: Cloud Computing


What is "cloud computing"? How can it help a business manage its growth?

In their new book, Cloud Computing Service and Deployment Models: Layers and Management, two professors from the Merrick School of Business present a cohesive, highly effective way for businesses large and small to find the answers. Co-authors Alberto M. Bento and Anil K. Aggarwal, both professors of information systems in the school's Department of Information Systems and Decision Science, have gathered experts from several disciplines to consider how business can best manage and take advantage of the opportunities stemming from this unprecedented growth in information resources. The relatively straightforward solution to the problem, they say, is cloud computing.
