Miami Business School Professional Online MBA Program Structure
The Professional Online MBA at the Miami Business School is a 42-credit program that can be completed in as little as 24 months or as long as 28 months. Students take one course at a time, providing a flexible schedule for fully employed candidates, with seven weeks per course and 13 total courses. For those who wish to specialize their Professional Online MBA degree, there are three additional options: an MBA with Corporate Finance focus; an MBA with Financial Decision Making focus; and an MBA with Accounting Practice focus. The Financial Decision Making and Corporate Finance tracks will require 47 total credits instead of the standard 42, with at least one more course each. The Accounting Practice focus requires 51 credits to graduate, with 15 courses. Course sequences vary per track and are subject to change.
Regardless of which track applicants may follow, each version of the program starts and ends with required courses. The major difference being that certain tracks require more coursework in line with the focus. For those enrolled in the standard Professional Online MBA program, the MBA with Corporate Finance focus, or the MBA with Financial Decision Making focus, start with BUS 640: The Fundamentals of Finance, Accounting, & Economics. Those in the Accounting Practice focus will complete much more accounting-centric coursework at the beginning of the program. At the end, however, students in any of the four tracks will complete their education with the required course MGT 658: Strategic Management.
Electives may be available depending on the program track. This can be done during the required Miami residency, or online.
