University of Miami to Roll Out 'Miami Executive MBA for the Americas' Program [Manufacturing Close - Up]

(Manufacturing Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The University of Miami School of Business Administration plans to launch a weekend Executive MBA program that breaks new ground in MBA education.

According to a release, the Miami Executive MBA for the Americas program, pending approval of the University's Faculty Senate, will focus on four key management themes those of importance to individuals and organizations operating in or connecting with high- growth markets, particularly those of the Americas. These themes include Global Multicultural Leadership, Managing Global Operations and Decision Making, Global Strategy and Execution, and Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology.

The program, to begin in August 2014, will be further distinguished by its focus on peer learning, whereby participants learn from one another by sharing, discussing, and analyzing the business challenges, threats and opportunities they face every day. Each weekend session will feature case studies, group projects, and simulations on issues of importance to high-potential executives engaged in the Americas, with work customized for program participants and their organizations. This will be enhanced by interaction with accomplished C-Suite executives from Miami and Latin America, who will participate in discussions and share their perspectives on these issues throughout the program.

"The Miami Executive MBA for the Americas program will be structured around themes relevant to high-potential executives, in particular those who want to excel in the high-growth markets of the Americas, in contrast to conventional Executive MBA programs, which are organized around functional areas," said Eugene Anderson, dean of the University of Miami School of Business Administration. "This approach to business education, coupled with a focus on peer learning, will bring exceptional value to both the participants and their organizations." The 17-month weekend program will be delivered in a format that blends on-campus face-to-face sessions with online distance learning, providing busy executives from across the Americas with a convenient way to earn the MBA degree. Nine on-campus sessions will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, once every eight weeks, with one-week sessions held at the start and finish of the program. Remote learning activities such as video conferencing, simulations, group discussions, and projects will take place in between the on- campus sessions.

The program will draw upon the School's relationships with the South Florida and Latin American business communities, its faculty expertise in international business, and its ability to attract to its programs seasoned executives from across the region. For more than a decade the School has offered a Spanish-language Executive MBA program that draws executives from across Latin America. The School also delivers an Executive MBA program in Puerto Rico and has partnerships with a number of business schools in the region. America Economia, one of Latin America's business magazines, in 2013 ranked the School's full-time MBA program among the top-10 U.S. MBA programs for Latin Americans and in 2012 ranked the School's executive education program as the No. 2 U.S. executive education program for Latin America.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
