The full-time two-year MBA Program (The Miami MBA) is innovative, flexible, and career-focused. Candidates with an undergraduate degree in any field with work experience who seek advanced business expertise as a springboard to their career are encouraged to apply. The curriculum not only prepares students for leadership in business, but it adds a valuable dimension to other professions.

Students gain new perspectives and have the opportunity to prove and polish their leadership skills. They learn to think critically across subjects, linking their knowledge of management, economics, and marketing with finance, business law, and technology.

Students are required to complete one two-credit elective from an approved list of courses in the areas of accounting, finance, and management Science.
