The university's School of Business Administration has developed the Miami Executive MBA for Professional Artists and Athletes, which begins in February 2015. The program 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 Professional 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," Gene Anderson, dean of the University of Miami 's School of Business Administration, said in a statement. "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 Professional Artists and Athletes adds another customized program to the School's unique MBA offerings.
The university's School of Business Administration 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.
