MBA Program for Artists and Athletes to Launch in February
October 20, 2014
The School of Business has developed a new Executive MBA program designed primarily for professional artists and athletes. The Miami Executive MBA for Artists and Athletes, which begins in February 2015, will teach these accomplished individuals, many of whom have strong personal brands, how to leverage their current career success into business and social achievement.
Because the program is expected to draw many players from the National Football League (NFL), classes will be held during the league’s off-season. The 18-month program consists of six two-week residency modules at the School’s main campus in Coral Gables. The program, which will be taught by the same world-class faculty who teach in the School’s other programs, has the same curriculum as the School's existing Global Executive MBA program, which meets on a similar schedule.
“The Miami Executive MBA for Artists and Athletes will equip current and former NFL players, as well as other athletes and artists, with the new knowledge and business skills they need to continue their personal and professional success,” said Gene Anderson, the School’s dean. “Like all of our Executive MBA programs, this specialized program is designed to help participants become successful managers and leaders in the business world.”The Miami Executive MBA for Artists and Athletes adds another customized program to the School’s unique MBA offerings. The School also offers The Miami Executive MBA for the Americas program, designed for those engaged in the business of the Americas; the Executive MBA in Health Sector Management and Policy program, designed for health care industry professionals; and the Spanish-language Global Executive MBA program, designed for Spanish-speaking executives in Latin America, among the School’s other MBA programs.
