Courses & Curriculum

On-Campus


In light of possible continued testing difficulties amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the UF Graduate School temporarily adjusted the GMAT and GRE testing policy for Spring 2021. For Spring 2021 admissions, applicants to one of Warrington’s Specialized Master’s programs will no longer be required to submit a GMAT or GRE score as part of the admissions process. Please contact the program administrators for updated application requirements and to check space availability.

The curriculum consists of 32 credit hours (22 core credits and 10 elective credits) designed to provide students with a solid business foundation. In Fall/Spring, courses are taught in 8-week modules. In Summer A/B courses are taught in 6 weeks.

  • 32 credit hours (22 core credits and 10 elective credits)
  • Classes are intense, fast moving and taught in 8-week modules.
  • The usual course load per module is 6 credits (3 classes).
  • Students may take up to 7 or 8 credits per module. Most graduate business courses are worth 2 credits each.
