Attending the University of Miami has long been an ambition of Justin Alexander Evangelista. “The ability to find a program that fit my schedule was really important for me,” he says. As was the invaluable networking/connections that are created and the sense of recognition that comes with the degree. “In the beginning, having a full-time job and being a part-time student was a little challenging, but the weekend classes were ideal with my work schedule, and more importantly, the Miami Herbert Business School Professional MBA Program allowed me to take care of my professional needs first. The professors provided me with the additional support I needed when there were schedule conflicts. After the first semester, I was able to create a routine to handle both work and school and the transition became simpler.” Mr. Evangelista was a part of the Professional MBA Program, which provides a fundamental curriculum for business professionals and future entrepreneurs. “Overall, the program — which covers the basics of accounting, marketing, finance, management, negotiations and electives — brought everything full circle,” he says. “It taught me how to be successful in the world of business.”; Go.Miami.edu/ProMBA.
