Seven Latin American countries are represented by the newest class in the School’s Spanish-language Global Executive MBA program, which started this week. The program, designed for senior business executives working in or doing business with Latin America, welcomed seven students from Colombia, four from Mexico, three from Peru, three from Venezuela, two from Ecuador, one each from the Dominican Republic, Panama, and Spain, as well as two from the U.S. The class includes CEOs, presidents and vice presidents, general managers, and even a congressman from Peru.
The program is designed to help professionals enhance their business knowledge and improve their management skills and strategic decision-making abilities. It is taught during seven two-week sessions taught over 18 months. Six sessions are held on the School’s main campus in Miami and a seventh session, an international study module, takes place outside the U.S.
The Global Executive MBA program is part of School’s growing reach into Latin America. The School also offers an Executive MBA program in Puerto Rico and non-degree executive education programs taught in Spanish. In August the School will admit the first class in The Miami Executive MBA for the Americas program. Like the Global Executive MBA program, the new program, which is taught in English, is expected to draw executives from across Latin America and the U.S. There will be nine on-campus sessions, mostly on weekends, held every two months with distance learning in between. This will enable those who live and work in Latin America to earn the UM MBA despite the distance and their busy schedules.
