"Miami Dade College has an exemplary track record of identifying career pathway curricula that mirrors the needs of the business and healthcare industries. This institution captures and grooms the talented minds of this county and produces professionals who predominantly choose to stay and pursue careers in their hometown, and as such contribute to the growth and development of Miami-Dade County, and participate in building Miami-Dade County into a national and international business destination." -Ricardo M.
