Weekend Professional MBA

Do you want to keep your job and pursue an MBA at a top-ranked university? The UF MBA Weekend Professional Format offers options that allow you to do just that.


The Professional MBA format is weekend-based to give you the flexibility to balance work, school and home life. Do you:

  • Have an undergraduate degree in business within the past seven years? The UF MBA program has two options that will allow you to get your MBA in an accelerated 16-months.
  • Want to expand your business knowledge and skill set but don’t have an undergraduate degree in business? We have four options that allow you to get your MBA without taking any pre-requisite courses – we promise!
  • Are monthly visits to Gainesville too far for you or difficult because of a demanding work schedule? There are two options that require limited travel to campus and one that meets in South Florida with no travel requirements to Gainesville.
The Weekend Professional MBA helps students earn their MBA through a collaborative environment without having to quit their job. A monthly trip to Gainesville allows students to learn and build their network through an interactive classroom setting. This weekend-based format maximizes the student’s time in Gainesville through face-to-face interaction with peers and faculty.

One-Year

This is an accelerated option designed for professionals who have an undergraduate degree in business within the last seven years. In 16 months, you will have your UF MBA degree in hand.

Two-Year

This 24-month option is designed for all majors who are seven years or more out from their undergraduate degree. No prerequisite courses are required because we provide the business core.

Two-Year in South Florida

Much like the Two-Year MBA, but once every three weeks for 24 months on a Saturday and Sunday, the brightest business leaders in South Florida gather at the UF MBA Sunrise Center.
