The University of Miami is Moving Away from MBA toward Specializations

A decline in MBA interest has institutions shifting to specializations.

Reported by Education Dive, the University of Miami has added specializations in business analytics, finance and sustainable business to draw students concerned the traditional MBA isn’t relevant enough for their specific career ambitions.

The takeaway? Know that your current top academic programs are just that. Current, but not forever. So we must stay on top of programmatic, market demand and employment trends in order to avoid large enrollment declines when our large programs decline.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
