The Miami Executive MBA for the Americas program, pending approval by the university's faculty senate, will focus on four areas: global multicultural leadership, managing global operations and decision making, global strategy and execution, and entrepreneurship, innovation and technology, according to a news release.
The peer learning program is slated to launch in August 2014, with classes held on weekends and online. The sessions will include discussions with C-level executives from Miami and Latin America.

"This approach to business education, coupled with a focus on peer learning, will bring exceptional value to both the participants and their organizations."
The 17-month weekend program will combine on-campus face-to-face sessions with online distance learning. Nine on-campus sessions will be held Friday-Sunday, once every eight weeks, with one-week sessions held at the start and finish of the program.
