The dual Master of Science in Sustainable Business and Accelerated MBA degree program allows students to earn both a specialized master's degree and an MBA. Students complete the two degrees in sequence--first, the M.S. program and then the Accelerated M.B.A. program for a total of 62 credits. This program is designed for students with an interest in broadening their business education beyond the specialized scope of their first master's degree program. This dual degree program will provide a robust framework for acquiring both depth and breadth in business education.

Master of Science in Sustainable Business

The University of Miami Business School's Master of Science in Sustainable Business provides students the opportunity to be a force for good inside a company by making positive impacts on the environment and society in a way that increases the long-term value of the firm and is consistent with the firm's strategy and vision. The unique disciplinary team of the program unites business, science, theory, and practice to provide forward-thinking expertise for those focused on where the world is headed. Beyond the business core courses, students receive training in scientific basics through interdisciplinary electives from the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and the Department of Civil Architecture and Environmental Engineering. 

Accelerated MBA Program

The Accelerated MBA program at the University of Miami Herbert Business School allows students to fast-track their career through hands-on opportunities in the city that is shaping the future of business. The Accelerated MBA gives eligible students the unique opportunity to earn an MBA in less than a year.  Candidates with an undergraduate degree in business or a graduate degree in business or related discipline are encouraged to apply. The program begins in May and runs through December, for a duration of 7 months.
