Frequently Asked Questions
- I want to apply to the Combined Option. Do the grades from the graduate business courses count towards my undergraduate GPA?
Yes. All graduate business coursework grades taken while an undergraduate will count in your undergraduate GPA. This includes ‘double-counted’ courses taken toward both the bachelor’s/master’s degree as well as courses that are only counting toward the master’s degree.
- If I have more than 2 years of work experience, may I still apply to MSM?
Yes. The classroom curriculum, discussions, assignments, and career workshops within the program are tailored to students who have received their Bachelor degrees within the past two years. However, if you have more than 2-3 years of post-bachelor’s degree work experience, we suggest you also research the UF MBA programs. Each application package is reviewed individually and in some cases, MSM is a better fit than MBA. Where the average age of the MSM student is 22-23 years and they have an average of .2 years full-time work experience, the MBA students are, on average, 27 years old and have 3.5 years of significant, full-time, post-bachelor’s degree work experience. The MSM program provides outstanding experiences and a high quality education with the same faculty members who teach in our MBA programs, but the class peer group is distinct from MBA. Also, recruiters who come to UF know that the MBA students have professional experience, so they intentionally target those students for the more advanced, higher-paying jobs.
- My GMAT/GRE is low, but I have a strong GPA and other experiences (or a low GPA /high test score). Do I still have a chance for admission?
Yes, we review applications in a holistic manner. The admissions committee will be looking for evidence of strong academic ability and the applicant’s potential for success in the program.
- What if I am not accepted? Can I re-apply?
Yes, you can re-apply. Unless there is a significant change in your application file (e.g. new test scores, updated transcripts, updated resume with additional relevant experience, etc.), the original admission decision will likely be the same.
