The University of Maryland, College Park, requires students to complete a minimum of 40 credits of general education. Students transferring to the University who have completed their general education requirements at another Maryland public institution of higher education will be considered to have completed their general education requirements with the exception of an upper-level writing course and any additional credits necessary to complete the minimum number of general education credits.
Students transferring to the University from another Maryland public institution of higher education who have not completed their general education requirements at another Maryland public institution of higher education should go to http://www.gened.umd.edu for more information.
Operations Management & Business Analytics
This major is only offered by the Smith School at the College Park campus. For more details on this major visit .http://www.rhsmith.umd.edu/programs/undergraduate-programs/academics/academic-majors/operations-management
Certain majors are very popular and require a limit on the number of students they can accommodate and are designated Limited Enrollment Programs (LEP) and these majors have specific admission. External transfer students from other institutions apply to LEP's through the general application for admission to the University by indicating the major(s) of interest. Students are first admitted to the University and then to Limited Enrollment Program majors based on LEP standards. All majors at the Robert H. Smith School of Business are classified as LEP majors.
For further information, visit http://lep.umd.edu/ , and for specific LEP requirements for the Robert H. Smith School of Business’s majors visit http://lep.umd.edu/bmgt-lep.pdf .
Students who are targeting a business major should also consider alternative majors outside of the Smith School of Business due to the competitiveness of admissions to the Smith School of Business. Popular alternatives include Economics and Communication. It is important to research the requirements of alternative majors as well in order to plan a curriculum that satisfies various options.
