Jesse Miller (MBA ’06)
Manager, Equipment Rental
After earning his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan with majors in philosophy and computer science, Jesse Miller (MBA ’06) was pursuing career opportunities in California in 2003 when he received a call from his father asking him to return to Miami and help his family’s business “on the management side.”

He’d devoted his summers since 1984 to working for the company, Midtown Video, and figured that his undergraduate education, particularly in computer science and information technology, would be helpful. So he returned to Miami.
When he learned about the college’s new Downtown MBA program, he jumped at the chance to enroll because of Florida International University’s excellent reputation and because the program was so “convenient, would take less than two years to complete, and would give me the information I needed to know: finance, legal issues, HR, supply chain, and customer relations.”
