University of Miami Business School

History

The first official iteration of the Miami Business School was founded in 1929 as the University of Miami School of Business Administration. In 1948, the school began offering its first MBA program and earned AACSB-accreditation less than ten years later. In the early 1970s, the school introduced its Executive MBA program, which was followed soon thereafter by the introduction of the Professional MBA and Executive MBA in Health Sector Management and Policy programs.

The School of Business firmly established a central base on the University of Miami campus in 1980 with the opening of the School of Business Administration Complex. In the decades to come, the school introduced a Ph.D. program, the Mentor Program, the FIRST Step Program for Undergraduates, the Miami Executive MBA en Español, and Accelerated MBA in Real Estate program, the Miami Global Executive MBA for the Americas, and several other specialized Master’s program. In 2018, the school was officially renamed as the University of Miami Business School.
