MBA Programs - Continuing Education in Florida
Professors talk about their approaches to teaching leadership skills.
The number of MBA degrees granted in recent years has grown — even as the immediate financial payoff has become more debatable. Partly in response, Florida’s universities are tweaking their MBA programs, coming up with creative specializations.
Instructors and students say the real advantage of an MBA is the practical application of what is learned. “We’re trying to get graduates out in the business community solving real business issues,” says Tim O’Keefe, associate dean and director of graduate programs at the University of West Florida in Pensacola.
Florida’s best MBA professors are focusing on teaching working professionals how to better manage teams, identify problem correctly and negotiate raises. At the links below, you'll find profiles of professors and learn how they approach teaching leadership skills.
