May 17, 2012
The MBA program at the University of Miami School of Business Administration is the nation’s No. 11 MBA program for Latin American students, according to a world ranking released this month by AméricaEconomía, Latin America’s leading business magazine. The annual rankings also place the School at No. 24 in the world for Latin American MBAs.
The ranking is based on a number of factors including the academic strength of the program, which takes into account the education and experience of the faculty; the production and dissemination of knowledge, which is based on the research strength of the faculty; the School’s international reputation; and the quality of the School’s network and the international opportunities it creates for MBA students and graduates.
The UM School of Business has established strong ties with Latin America which include partnerships with some the region’s leading business schools in Brazil, Peru, and Argentina. It offers a Spanish-language Global Executive MBA program, Spanish and English language business certificate programs, and other executive education programs which draw senior executives from across the region. And in 2009, the School launched an Executive MBA program in Puerto Rico. In 2011, Hispanic Business magazine ranked the School as the nation’s No. 5 program for Hispanic MBA students.
