GMAT Boot Camp

We know that the GMAT can be a hurdle in the MBA application process, especially for those who are far out of college. That’s why, for years, UF MBA has been proud to offer free, in-person GMAT Boot Camps.

The 2-day weekend session in Gainesville will be held on campus in Hough Hall, where all UF MBA classes are hosted. A list of suggested hotels as well as more details will be provided upon registration.

The UF MBA GMAT Boot Camp will provide:

  • 15 hours of live instruction
  • Comprehensive workbook
  • Access to instructor for one-on-one tips and questions

The cost for the two-day live sessions is covered by UF MBA. Participant costs will only include the prep book used by the instructor (versions newer than 2017 are preferred, but older ones are acceptable, find it on or Amazon), and travel arrangements (for the weekend sessions).

Upcoming Boot Camps

  • Saturday and Sunday, August 28th and 29th
