Miami Executive MBA en Español Admission Requirements | University of Miami

Candidacy for the University of Miami Executive MBA Program is based on an evaluation of academic and professional preparation and accomplishments. Professionally, the applicant should have demonstrated an aptitude for career advancement and leadership. Whether the applicant is in the early stages of a career or mid-career, career potential is measured by increased workplace responsibility, demonstrated managerial skills, recommendations and assessment of the nomination. Motivation, intellectual curiosity, high ethical standards and perseverance are essential characteristics for success in the Executive MBA Program.

The Admissions Committee considers the "total" person - men and women who show a pattern of achievement and the ability to assume increased responsibility during their careers. The Admissions Index assesses each candidate on the following factors:

  • Years of business-related work experience
  • Years of management experience
  • Level of current position
  • Maturity
  • Undergraduate grade point average
  • GMAT score (if required)
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • Undergraduate School
  • Undergraduate Major
  • International experience
  • Intercultural experience

Admission to the Executive MBA Program does not guarantee that a seat is available. A seat is guaranteed upon receipt of the deposit required by the Graduate Business Programs Office based on space availability. After a class has been filled, a waiting list of qualified candidates is compiled. Candidates are notified when their status changes.

Required Admissions Materials

Application Form

An application form for admission must be completed, signed by the applicant, and submitted to the Graduate Business Programs Office with a $100.00 application fee. Applications will be reviewed by the admissions committee only upon receipt of the application fee and a completed file.
