Welcome Message from the Dean

Welcome! I’m honored to serve as dean of Miami Herbert Business School at the U. I’m passionate about the vision of the University of Miami under the leadership of President Julio Frenk and excited about the remarkable momentum of our business school.

Located in one of the most diverse and dynamic business centers in the world, we offer unparalleled opportunities to learn, engage, and grow. The nation’s seventh-largest metro market, Miami is a magnet for arts, culture, and innovation. Visit our campus, surf our website, or connect with us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or Instagram, and you will find a Miami experience like no other. Our students come from over 80 countries and our faculty from over 30.

Miami Herbert Business School is building bridges across borders, sustainable business and societal challenges, and fostering entrepreneurship in the capital of Latin America. We are at the forefront of innovation in business education and research.

Aligned with our University’s “Roadmap to Our New Century,” Miami Herbert Business School is building bridges across borders, sustainable business and societal challenges, and fostering entrepreneurship in the capital of Latin America. We are at the forefront of innovation in business education and research. A notable example is our new Master of Science in Sustainable Business. Our students learn in more places than ever, with experiential opportunities around the world, and we deliver our programs in more ways than ever. Several of our master’s programs – including our MBA, which marked its 70th anniversary in 2018 – are now also offered fully online. In sum, we offer you multiple ways to customize your degree and your curriculum, and a dedicated career advancement team that will help you maximize your return on investment.

The research conducted by our faculty – distinguished thought leaders in their fields – drives business change and shapes public policy. Our impact conferences and distinguished leaders lecture series draw thousands of professionals each year to share ideas on some of the most pressing issues facing business. And our alumni, more than 45,000 strong, are leading global organizations and bringing about positive change across the U.S. and worldwide.

This year, more than 1,100 men and women will graduate from Miami Herbert Business School. In addition, hundreds more executives will benefit from our outstanding leadership development programs custom-designed for individual corporations. I encourage you to explore the many benefits of joining our vibrant community. We always welcome hearing from you about your aspirations and career goals.
