Dual Degree (Masters/PhD/Professional)

January, June, and August start dates available.

  • Concurrent Degree (Masters/PhD)
  • Professional Joint Degree (JD, MD, DDS, DVM, PharmD)

The MIB degree allows current graduate and professional students to diversify their skills with a strong business foundation. Dual degree students can share a total of nine credits between both graduate/professional programs, shortening the duration of the MIB degree.

Admission is separate for each degree program. Applicants should refer to each department’s admission requirements.

Questions about applications can be emailed (mib at warrington.ufl.edu).

Current graduate students who previously completed the online UF Graduate School application do not need to reapply.

Note: Professional Degree students must complete the UF Graduate School online application.

If you previously submitted transcripts, reference letters, GRE/GMAT scores, etc. to the UF Graduate Admissions, please email us (mib at warrington.ufl.edu).

  • Dual Degree Application Notice

    The essay should be completed as part of the online application. Please emphasize:

    • Your motivations for applying to the program
    • Why you think you are a good candidate for the program
    • How the program fits into your future goals

    Use the essay as an opportunity to highlight what you think we cannot assess from the other application materials. Ideal length is between 400-600 words.

  • Résumé or Curriculum Vitae (C.V.)

    The résumé helps us get a complete picture of each applicant. Please elaborate on duties and responsibilities as well as leadership activities and time commitments outside of the classroom. Résumé is not limited to one page.

    A minimum of two recommendations from someone who has supervised the applicant (professor, employer, adviser, volunteer coordinators, etc.) are required. Recommendations from student/peer leaders will not be accepted.

    To submit recommendations, list the name and contact information for your recommenders in the online application. Those individuals will then receive an automatic e-mail, after you submit your online application.
