Kellogg-Miami EMBA program: value for Latin American executives

One year after its launch, the Kellogg-Miami Executive MBA Program is already shaping up as the school's Latin American hub for global learning.

In January, the inaugural class of 42 will complete its first year of studies. Meanwhile, Kellogg prepares to welcome its second class of mid-career professionals from throughout Latin American.

The program is growing to resemble its prototype in Evanston, featuring visits from business leaders and events hosted by Kellogg alumni. And on Jan. 14-18, the program will host its first non-degree executive education program, "Accelerating Sales Force Performance."

Assistant Dean and EMBA Director Julie Cisek Jones says half the current class travels from countries such as Chile, Peru and Guatemala to the Coral Gables location. The rest of the students hail from Florida and the southeastern United States. 

"These students have exceeded our expectations," Jones says. "They are extremely talented academically and bring tremendous enthusiasm to the program."

"What's most impressed me about these students is that they seem very appreciative," adds Ronald Dye, the Leonard Spacek Professor of Accounting Information and Management. "They're sincere about learning not just from the faculty but from each other. They interact very well. It's a pleasure to teach in this program." — RL
