Program Overview

Miami University's miniMBA program is a fast-track, light-sample version of the full MBA. It abridges a two-year MBA degree into an "overview" learning experience of approximately 24 hours of media content. This program is ideal for professionals who want to strengthen their perception of the modern business world, with innovation and informed business decision-making at its core.

The program includes MBA essentials, such as leadership, entrepreneurship, accounting and finance. Each topic will feature the highest quality mini lectures, each taught by Miami University's Farmer School of Business faculty. To add to your learning, and to include a little Miami University Love and Honor, we've included interviews with some of our successful Miami alumni.

Coming soon: Miami plans to expand the program and open it more broadly to include those outside of the Miami community.

The miniMBA covers twelve topics in three areas. The Strategy, Ethics & the Business Mindset bundle includes Business Ethics & Corporate Social Responsibility; Cross-cultural Management; Digital Marketing; and Strategy. The Business Innovation, Change Management & Financials bundle includes the topics Entrepeneurship & Innovation; Change Management; Financial Management; and Creativity & Design Thinking. Lastly, the Business Fundamentals & Disruptive Technologies bundle examines Leveraging Disruptive Technology in the Digital World; Cash Flow, Taxes, & Decision-Making; Supply Chains; and Branding.
