FIU viewed the standard Executive MBA curriculum as antiquated, so it redesigned its program to teach practical, applicable skills for the 21st Century. “Like any new business venture, our Executive MBA evolved to meet the needs of our market,” says Angel J. Burgos, Executive Director, FIU MBA Programs. “FIU faculty worked tirelessly with our alumni to create a series of interdisciplinary courses that focus on navigating in a global environment, building high-performance organizations, creating social & economic value and developing and implementing strategic innovation. “The program is offered to seasoned professionals who show exceptional promise and aptitude for executive leadership. “FIU EMBAs will be exposed to world-class thinkers and executives, will work collaboratively on real-world simulations, and will conduct research abroad,” says Burgos. “Individually, they will benefit from one-on-one mentoring, stringent self-assessments and peer review. Every day, they will be challenged.”
