Students Say

Its unique access to Latin America is a huge selling point for The School of Business Administration at the University of Miami, which offers a One-Year and Two-Year MBA program, as well as four Executive MBAs and Professional MBA. Both the One-Year and Two-Year programs are lockstep (only the Two-Year offers concentrations), and the Professional MBA offers "easy logistics to attend class for working professionals." The curriculum is "well-structured and [has] good balance between all the different concentrations," albeit "very fast-paced with lots of material and a moderate to heavy reading load. Though the programs are extremely career-focused, a wide range of electives is offered so that students who come to UM without specific objectives might find their paths, and the powers that be are "creative in the development of new programs that help the university expand and attract top talent."

Professors here are "well-established, knowledgeable, and willing to help," "are experts in their field," and "have very high standards for student performance." "As long as you put forth the effort, you can pass but you will only excel if you really put your mind to it," advises a student. The administration is "extremely responsive and sensitive to the needs of the students," and in light of recent evaluation there has been a large effort to support student interaction and socialization. Breakfast and supper are served each day of class to allow Professional MBA students to meet and network, and the school "has a lot of activities, guest speakers, and workshops for students to attend outside of class."

Description

School's environmental commitment 1:
The School of Business recycles all white paper and the university recently made it easier for faculty, staff, students, and visitors to part with their bottles and cans when they’re out and about, converting half of the campus’s 160 garbage bins into recycling containers. The concrete recycle bins and trash cans are now paired up, with recycle bins designated by a blue ring on the top.

School's environmental commitment 2:
The School of Business has replaced all light bulbs and ballasts in its entire complex, using smaller electronic ballast fluorescent lighting fixtures that emit just as much light as larger bulbs but use far less energy. On/off occupancy sensors were also installed in the buildings.

School's environmental commitment 3:
The School’s MBA students have the opportunity to participate in competitions related to the environment. The School partners with the South Florida chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI) for one such competition. In one case, MBA students had to develop a project management plan for a recycling initiative in the fictional South Florida community of Coral Green. The entries had to include plans for project scope, process improvement and management of scheduling, costs, quality, staffing, communication, risk and procurement.

Students Say

"Career searches always give back what the students put into them," and at Miami there are "plenty of opportunities." The Ziff Graduate Career Services Center is "strongly connected to firms in the financial services industry and tech industry," and students looking to do business in South America are likewise in luck. Clubs are active networking and skill-building hubs at UM, and the Management Consulting club in particular "is extremely engaged in academic, organizational, and leadership activities." Many students are already entrepreneurs looking to run or enhance their own business, and so the alum- ni and classmate network is crucial to advancement. "I learn as much from classmates as I do my professors," says one.

Top employers of recent UM grads include Bayview Asset Management, BACARDI USA, Citrix Systems, Microsoft Corporation, and CITIGroup.

Campus Life

Students Say

According to some students, "there couldn't be a better school for quality of life." Located "in the heart of sleepy Coral Gables, but within striking distance of most of the sights in Miami," the business school sits along the river that runs through campus and "much of the studying time is spent at the tables by the water enjoying Miami's weather." Even for students without cars, "the Metrorail runs right to campus from downtown," and during football season part- and full-time students alike "all try to make it to games." There is a "real diversity of backgrounds, ethnicity, and career aspirations" to be found at UM, and "since the business school is so small, the students are very close." "We know almost every person in the program at a personal level," says one. "While having competitive personalities, everyone helps each other because they realize we are colleagues at the end of the day," says a student. The school is "almost always bustling with activity.
