Designed to Transform You
A graduate business degree should do more than provide you with credentials. It should transform how you think about business and provide you with the world-class skills, resources and connections to lead for life.
An MBA for experienced professionals at the top of their field. Held on campus, one weekend a month for 20 months, the Executive MBA emphasizes global business and leadership from a c-suite perspective.
This 24-month program is designed for professionals with a wide range of experience. With classes starting in January and August, students attend classes on campus two evenings each week.
Early Advantage MBA
Ranked #1 in Florida for return on investment by Forbes Magazine, the Early Advantage MBA program is a full-time day program for recent college graduates with little to no work experience and career changers.
The first AACSB-accredited degree of its kind in Florida, Crummer’s Executive Doctorate in Business Administration is designed for executives who want to contribute to organizational success at a significantly higher level than that afforded by the MBA.
