The UF MBA Combination Degree program is designed for students who seek to rise to the challenge of enrolling in a full-time MBA program while also pursuing an additional professional, graduate, or doctoral degree. Two options exist for pursuing a Combination Degree: an MBA along with a Professional Degree, as well as an MBA along with another Master’s Degree. These programs share class credits, allowing certain credits can be counted towards both degrees. The listed duration of study for a given program is typically extended by one year, and students must be admitted by each program in order to qualify. Starting times for the Combination Degree Programs are flexible.
In this program, MBA students combine their MBA degree with a program in one of the professional schools. Generally, 12 credits are shared between the two programs. The following colleges have offerings that can be pursued in this combination degree option:
Levin College of Law
The JD/MBA program is designed to be completed in three years. Applicants can apply to the MBA program during their 1L year and would begin the MBA degree, if offered admission, the summer in-between their 1L and 2L years.
