Mission Statement

Miami University Offers miniMBA to Miami Tribe

Last year, Miami University released a new online program for their alumni and students, a miniMBA. Miami University's miniMBA program is a fast-track, light-sample version of the full MBA. It abridges a two-year MBA degree into an "overview" learning experience of approximately 24 hours of media content.

Because of our ongoing relationship, Miami University is opening up this opportunity for citizens of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma. The program will be available from June 1st through August 31st, 2021. There are no prerequisites for participation in the program--it is open to all citizens of the Tribe. Registration information for the program will be shared via the Tribe’s webpage and the Facebook group.

Program Details

The miniMBA program is ideal for professionals who want to strengthen their perception of the modern business world, with innovation and informed business decision-making at its core.

The program includes MBA essentials, such as leadership, entrepreneurship, accounting and finance. Each topic will feature the highest quality mini lectures, each taught by Miami University's Farmer School of Business faculty. To add to your learning, and to include a little Miami University Love and Honor, they included interviews with some of our successful Miami alumni.

This program is designed for those who want to:

  • Strengthen their understanding of the modern business world
  • Make an impactful contribution to their organization’s innovation efforts
  • Leverage their skills and experience in current or future business endeavors
  • Differentiate themselves and their skills amongst their peers
  • Explore an MBA or other graduate business program
