Developing Global Leaders at the Crossroads of the Americas

The mission of the University of Miami School of Business Administration is to develop innovative ideas and principled leaders that transform global business and society. We strive to be thought leaders that redefine business knowledge and practice in the broadest possible terms, including the shaping of business scholarship and how business is conceived, and to set the standard for business education.

Welcome from the Dean

Welcome! I recently arrived from Harvard Business School to serve as dean of the School of Business Administration at the U. I’m passionate about the vision of the University of Miami under the leadership of President Julio Frenk and excited about the remarkable momentum of our business school.

Located in one of the most diverse and dynamic business centers in the world, we offer unparalleled opportunities to learn, engage and grow. The nation’s eighth-largest metro market, Miami is a magnet for arts, culture and innovation. Visit our campus, surf our website, or connect with us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or Instagram, and you will find a Miami experience like no other. Our students come from nearly 90 countries and our faculty from nearly 40.

Aligned with the University’s “Roadmap to Our New Century,” our School of Business is building bridges across borders, tackling fundamental business and social challenges, and fostering entrepreneurship in the capital of Latin America. We are at the forefront of innovation in business education and research. Our students learn in more places than ever, with experiential opportunities around the world, and we deliver our programs in more ways than ever. Several of our master’s programs - including our MBA, which marks its 70th anniversary in 2018 - are now offered fully online. In sum, we offer you multiple ways to customize your degree and your curriculum, and a dedicated career services team that will help you maximize return on investment.

The research conducted by our faculty - distinguished thought leaders in their fields - drives business change and shapes public policy. Our impact conferences draw thousands of professionals each year to share ideas on some of the most pressing issues facing business. And our alumni, 45,000 strong, are leading global organizations and bringing about positive change across the U.S. and worldwide.

This is an exciting time for the School of Business Administration. I encourage you to learn more about us and to buy into our vibrant community. We would also like to hear from you about your aspirations and career goals. Please email your ideas and questions to
