The Partnership

The University of Baltimore and Towson University have joined forces to partner for your success. The UB/Towson MBA will encourage your intellectual exploration, help you apply theory to practice, and give you the skills and resources necessary to guide you toward your professional goals. When you graduate, you will join a dynamic alumni community of business leaders from two vibrant and distinguished business schools; the University of Baltimore and Towson University.

The University of Baltimore

UB Student CenterThe University of Baltimore is a career-oriented public university that specializes in knowledge that works. The University of Baltimore was founded in 1925 as a private coeducational institution. It became a public institution in 1975, and today is part of the University System of Maryland. UB's mission is clear: to provide outstanding educational programs for professionally oriented students. Today, nearly 5,000 students are enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degree programs in the Merrick School of Business, the Yale Gordon College of Liberal Arts and the School of Law. More than half of the students work full or part-time. Their practical experience gives UB classes a unique quality.

The Merrick School of Business has a long tradition of serving the business community. It has been delivering a quality MBA program since 1971 and today also offers Master of Science programs in Accounting and Business Advisor Services and Taxation. The Merrick School received AACSB-International Accreditation in 1978 and enjoys an alumni network of over 25,000 successful business professionals.

Towson University

Founded in 1866 as Maryland's first school for training teachers, Towson University today is the state's second-largest Stephens Hall public university. Approximately 18,000 students are enrolled in more than 100 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences and applied professional fields. In 2006, U.S. News & World Report ranked Towson fifth in the Public Universities-Master's (North) category in its "America's Best Colleges" issue.

Situated on a 328-acre suburban campus on the outskirts of Baltimore, Towson combines research-based learning with practical application. Its business programs are consistent with this approach. Towson first offered business and economics courses in the mid-1960s, and today the College of Business and Economics, with over 3,000 students, is the largest undergraduate business program in Maryland. The graduate business program includes The UB/Towson MBA and the MS in Accounting and Business Advisory Services.

Towson earned AACSB-International accreditation in business administration in 1992 and in accounting in 1994. The university's many interdisciplinary partnerships with public and private organizations provide students opportunities for research, internships, and employment.
