5 EXECUTIVE MBA PROFESSIONAL MBA 3 EXCEPTIONAL LEADERSHIP ABILITY. LEARNED AND EARNED. Leadership is what every organization demands, but the ability to lead isn t automatically granted with an MBA. Learning to lead evolves during the process of earning your degree. You do it with the skills you acquire as you exchange ideas with accomplished peers, field challenges from top faculty, interact with renowned business leaders and tackle a rigorous curriculum. Sharpening your ability to lead takes more than gaining an understanding of theory. It takes real-life experience in a stimulating, diverse and intellectual environment. As part of the University of Miami MBA experience, you ll work in small learning teams that will provide you with the chance to develop your leadership skills and test your newly acquired insight. A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE UM s MBA programs for executives and working professionals, established more than 35 years ago, are among the nation s longest running and most well-regarded.
