Welcome to the website for the School of Business and Technology (SBT) at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
During the past several years, the SBT has witnessed some significant levels of uplifting and progress in numerous directions. Because of growth and program enhancement for national accreditation in many of the Departments in the School of Business and Technology, more lines were allocated to the School to support specific programs.
With these developments, curricula in various programs were reassessed to meet Department designated accreditation standards, new courses were developed to serve the interest of our students as well as meet the new challenges in the market place, the volume of meaningful academic research and competitive grants was increased, and new programs were proposed and developed in accordance with our mission as a land grant HBCU institution.
The SBT programs provide unparalleled opportunities for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore to expand and grow to meet the needs of the State and the region. With cooperation from various business leaders and industry groups, the SBT is fortunate to have partners that are dedicated to the success of our School and the University. Because of the diversity of the SBT programs, we can attract students with varied interests ranging from business, applied computer science, golf management, hospitality, technology education and engineering while serving the community at large.
The School of Business and Technology is committed to providing excellent education and professional skills through updated curricula across the Departments and has one of the highest numbers of graduates at UMES each year. The faculty members within the School are actively engaged in funded research and educational projects, many of which involve undergraduate and graduate students. The School strives to be known as the School of Choice for those seeking a high-quality values-based education in alignment with the School Motto of Producing Leaders with Values.
I feel privileged to serve this great institution as Dean of the SBT and enthusiastically look forward to working with all constituencies to move our School to a higher level of academic excellence with national recognition.
