What is Miami PRIME?

Miami’s Professional Institute for Management Education (PRIME) is a four-week, in-residence summer program designed to introduce non-business majors to fundamental concepts in business. Taught by faculty in the nationally-ranked Farmer School of Business, PRIME students will develop an integrated knowledge of how business works, strengthen their networking and career search skills, and apply these new skills while working on a project for a business client.

Upon completion you will have earned 9 credit hours, a Thematic Sequence in Business (for Miami students), as well as the skills and confidence to be successful in your chosen field. This program has been designed for all liberal arts, education, science, and engineering students who do not have business foundation courses.

We know you are passionate about your field of study. Miami PRIME will combine that passion with the practical business skills needed to round out your college experience and prepare you for whatever career you choose.

Days for our Summer Session

Miami PRIME runs from Tuesday, May 30 through Friday, June 23. (Some weekends and nights may be required.)
