About Melbourne Graduate Center

Melbourne Graduate Center is an integral academic unit of Florida Institute of Technology focused on offering a quality education to all students. Our graduate degree programs serve adult learners through academic excellence, while encouraging diversity and inclusion and encouraging responsiveness to a rapidly changing global workforce in an evolving society.

Courses are taught by well-accomplished faculty members recruited from business and industry, with most having terminal (Ph.D., D.B.A. or J.D.) degrees within their subject areas. Students study real-life applications of business subjects under the expert instruction and dedication of faculty who are leaders in the local business and education community, as part of the university's tradition of excellence.

The Melbourne Graduate Center faculty and staff believe that learning is a lifelong process that need not be constrained by time or place. Learning is a cooperative process involving the joint responsibility of both students and teachers. Knowledge resides in many places and in many forms. It is the purpose of the Melbourne Graduate Center Site to acquire and disseminate this knowledge as widely and as completely as possible.
