“The quality of professors at Miami is outstanding. The faculty are really invested in our learning and you can tell they care so much about us and our program. And I really enjoy the small cohort size because it gives me the opportunity to learn and connect with everyone. 

The program feels really invested in my career plans and I love that I can go to anyone involved for advice and they would happily help. I would 100% recommend this program to anyone interested in getting a solid foundation in business. I’m only in my first semester and the program is already opening a lot of doors for me.”

Undergrad: Miami University, BS in Psychology, Minor in Management and Leadership (’20)

"I majored in psychology because I wanted to understand how behavior impacts others both socially and in a working environment. Joining the MSiM program seemed like a natural fit to continue learning about how people and organizations work. I believe at the end of this program I will be equipped to smoothly transition into the workforce and ready to take on new opportunities."

"The Farmer faculty are very devoted to teaching and have a ton of real-world experience. I was originally planning to attend law school, but a summer internship working on public policy issues for high-tech startup companies made me change course and enroll in the MSiM program. The MSiM is giving me the hard business skills I need to leverage my public affairs background into the career I want in management consulting."
