With the online CMBA program at Florida International University, there are many things that stand out to make it a viable option. There is a lot of flexibility offered to students, the school has the highest accreditation available, and there are even scholarships to help pay for the program. Understanding what all is offered is the first part to making the decision for the school you want to attend and the program you want to work on. It is a big decision because you will be working on this for at least a year. Before choosing a school to attend, it is best to look at all of the facts. We have gathered 25 facts about the Florida International University Online CMBA program to assist you with this.

  • The Florida State International University School of Business has the highest accreditation that a business school could have: Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
  • There is a rolling application deadline and new terms start every few months. This means you have a lot of flexibility when it comes to your start date. You can start when it fits your schedule and not the other way around.
  • In order to apply for the program, you must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution.
  • You must also have a 3.0 GPA from upper coursework. However, if you GPA is lower than 3.0, you must also offer very strong work experience in order to be considered. You must show this by having your transcripts sent to the university in a sealed and official envelope from your previous school.

  • The tuition for the program is approximately $3,000 oer course, $1,000 per credit hour, or a total od $42,000. These amounts are subject to change so we advise that you check for current pricing on the website to ensure it has not changed or to see the current pricing prior to applying.

The price of the program with the scholarship is $32,000 total, $22,85.71 per course, or $761.90 per credit. The scholarship is not retroactive so if you get it after you have started the program, it will only apply to the courses you have not yet taken.
