The full-time MBA curriculum shifted to a lock-step format in 2003; and students are grouped in cohorts of around 35 to complete core courses. Out of the 24 classes required to graduate, nine can be filled with electives. Students can concentrate in any of seven areas such as management, finance and international business, or even double concentrate.
Because of the strong EMBA program, many of the students work full-time while completing their degree, and most of the social life takes place off campus--luckily, Miami has plenty to offer on that front. The limited graduate housing also reinforces the off-campus focus, as most students live in other suburbs or in downtown Miami. Moreover, since students are so integrated into Miami life, it's no surprise that many end up in the Miami metropolitan area. Though there are still options for graduates who want to pursue a career farther away; the school attracts corporate recruiters and funds student trips to national conferences.
