School of Business is Ranked Nation’s No. 2 Business School for Executive Education in Latin America
December 06, 2012
The School’s executive education program has been ranked as the No. 2 U.S. executive education program for Latin America by América Economía magazine. The just released 2012 rankings also place the School No. 17 internationally among all of the schools ranked.
“The University of Miami School of Business Administration is uniquely positioned to be the business school of choice for both degree and non-degree business education in Latin America,” said Dean Eugene Anderson. “This ranking is a testament to our commitment to engage managers and organizations throughout Latin America and to better prepare them to respond successfully to the growth the region is experiencing.”
América Economía, one of Latin America’s leading business magazines, ranked the top executive education programs based on the size and number of each school’s corporate clients, the seniority of the participants in the programs, the quality of the faculty who teach in the programs, each school’s international connections, and the prestige of school.
“The America Economia ranking is great news and validates our LATAM business strategies,” said Amelia Rea Maguire, associate dean for executive education. “We are growing executive education programs with our partners to lead the way for high growth companies to thrive and excel in the global market place. We are here for them now and we will be side-by-side in their future.”
The School of Business offers executive education programs customized for the specific needs of individual organizations and their employees as well as open enrollment programs for executives and other business professionals. A significant number of the School’s custom executive education clients and partners are based in Latin America, with many among the region’s leading corporations. These custom programs, which are delivered in both English in Spanish, range in topic from “managing across cultures” and “global strategies” to “driving innovation,” “developing high-potential employees,” and “senior executive development.”
“We have worked with some of the most innovative companies in the region, helping them and their workforces outperform the competition” said David Lecón, the School’s director of executive education.
The School’s executive education offerings also include open enrollment certificate programs, many of which also draw executives from Latin America. These programs include a Latin American Healthcare Compliance Certificate Program, a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Program and an Advanced Marketing Strategy Certificate Program, among others offered both in English and Spanish.
