Working Professional MBA Students
Many of the students enrolled in the external degree programs offered by the UF MBA Programs receive some degree of financial sponsorship from their employers. This financial sponsorship presents ethical dilemmas when it comes to using certain services provided by the Graduate Business Career Services Office. Because of this, the UF MBA Programs have adopted the following guidelines:
- Students who are paying for 100% of their education are free to utilize all career service resources and do not need permission from their current employer to do so. These students will have access to the staff of the GBCS office and are encouraged to take advantage of our services. These services would include career advising, helping to establish a clearly defined career plan, resume preparation, interviewing and communication skills, etc.
- Students who are receiving any degree of financial sponsorship from their company must first receive permission from their current employer (immediate supervisor) to participate in career-switching activities. Once they have received this permission, they will have the same access as those students who are financing 100 percent of their education.
- Because you are members of the University of Florida community, all students have full access to all of the services offered by the University’s Career Resource Center.
ALL UF Working Professional MBA students who wish to utilize GBCS for any reason must complete the Working Professional MBA Access Form prior to receiving career services.
