Heading back to school is an understatement as Miami’s avid philanthropist and successful entrepreneur Shareef Malnik returns to his alma mater at the University of Miami—this time, to the Miami Herbert Business School’s Miami Global Executive MBA program.

“If you’re looking for a program that’s going to change your life and your business life, and that’s going to take you to the next level so that you can actually apply what you learn to what you know and what you’re doing, this is the program for you."
