MBA Microcredentials

Strategic Thinking. Financial Acumen.
Problem-Solving. Leadership.

These are the skills today’s top employers value most, and we’ve been helping MBA students develop them for decades at Miami University’s Farmer School of Business. 

But you don’t have to commit to a full MBA to advance your career. Choose your laser-focused path — Strategic Thinking, Financial Acumen, Problem Solving in Business Contexts, or Leadership — and earn your MBA Microcredential in as little as one year. And the best part? If you decide to continue your business education, the coursework can be applied to a full MBA.

How does it work?

Offered fully online, in person (evenings at Miami’s West Chester location), or as an online/in-person hybrid, each of Miami’s four MBA Microcredentials is a flexible three-course program you can complete part-time in as few as 12 months. If you decide to continue your business education, your coursework can count toward your MBA.

Applying is easy. You must have a bachelor’s degree and at least three years of professional work experience, but that’s it. No other previous academic information or testing is required.

Make an investment in your career with an MBA Microcredential from Miami University.
