Weekend Professional: One-Year
The UF MBA Weekend Professional One-Year format is one of the quickest ways you can earn your MBA. UF is one of a few select programs in the world offering such an option—one that is AACSB accredited and awards a diploma equivalent to on campus programs.
Warrington’s top-ranked MBA programs continue to operate during these uncertain times. While all University of Florida classes are running online, UF MBA has also moved information sessions and other recruitment events online.
UF MBA continues to accept applications and has moved deadlines to 4 weeks prior to the program start date. If your GMAT or GRE testing has been disrupted, we are happy to create a custom schedule for you. Additional information regarding online test-taking can be found here:
Whatever you need, we are here to assist you and create a plan for your unique situation. Please reach out to a staff member if we can help during the application process.
With your business background and a foundations review provided as part of orientation, you will be able to delve into higher-level MBA classes sooner in this accelerated program option. The Weekend Professional One-Year is 32 credits versus the 48 credits in our two-year programs. We recognize that you completed the core business courses during your undergraduate experience, and are therefore not requiring them to be repeated. The admissions team will evaluate your transcripts to ensure your eligibility, but we recommend you review our eligibility checklist to assess your candidacy.
If you have another graduate degree in business or a business minor, we recommend also reviewing the checklist. There is a possibility you have completed all the coursework necessary for this accelerated option.
