Experiential Learning

The world is your classroom at Miami Herbert.
The curriculum at Miami Herbert Business School integrates theory with real-world experiential learning. This immersive experience, coupled with training in data analytics, develops a skillset that leads to well-founded business decisions.

Team-Based, Faculty-Guided Consulting

Students enrolled in Miami Herbert’s 10-month Master of Science in Sustainable Business program get hands-on experience working companies like Office Depot on sustainability projects.
Students enrolled in our interdisciplinary action project class traveled to Grand Bahama to meet with business owners in Freeport who continue to struggle with recovery after Hurricane Dorian. The class is also collaborated with students and faculty from the University of the Bahamas to develop resiliency plans against future disasters.
This program gives students the opportunity to travel abroad and work on projects for real companies. It's the perfect opportunity for graduate students to gain valuable hands-on international business experience. Participants in the Global Business Consulting program solve real problems, and experience real success.
Our Volunteer Corps matches recent Miami Herbert graduates with nonprofit organizations that need support, especially those impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

The Multidisciplinary Action Projects (UMAP) course places students with organizations throughout the world to address pressing organizational challenges. Students work in teams with guidance from faculty advisors to develop actionable and valuable recommendations for sponsors.
