“A very focused professional MBA,” the Farmer curriculum includes 36 credit hours of upper-level business courses, of which 27 are core courses in economics, accounting, marketing, management, and other key business areas. With the remaining 9 elective credits, students may choose to pursue a concentration in marketing or finance. Throughout the curriculum, there is an emphasis on collaboration, with a “cohort-based” program that maintains students within the same small academic community during the full MBA. Note that the program does not allow flexibility in the academic calendar; “The classes are prescheduled to keep the cohort together.” Throughout the program, Farmer professors rely on case-based instruction, encouraging students to use critical thinking skills and real-world experience to solve business problems in the classroom. This interactive approach to education is particularly effective at Miami University, as students are “extremely intelligent with a lot of work experience,” making them valuable contributors to class discussion. In fact, students range from “very early in their career to executives that have owned multiple companies.” Staying on top of the coursework is not always a breeze, but it is rewarding: “Academically, the work is a challenge to keep up with, but it is that challenge that keeps it engaging.”
Many students choose the Farmer School of Business for its excellent regional reputation, telling us that the school lives up to its strong credentials: The professors are “all very smart and challenge students to excel.” In the classroom, “Some teachers are outstanding and some are not so great.” However, the vast majority are “approachable and seem to care about doing a good job.” Plus, any time the program falls short, students feel they have the full attention of the school’s administration and staff. As they continue developing the part-time MBA, “The administration is open to suggestions on how the program or any given course can be improved.”
