Why choose the Master of Business Administration program?
What do students have to say about the MBA program?
"...all I want to say is that thanks to the MBA program at the University of West Florida, its outstanding professors and team, its valuable program content, and the global experiences it provided, I could complete the requirements to accomplish my dreams."
"The MBA 'Finish in Five' program allowed me to progress quickly through the program. The Portfolio project allowed me to see how the required courses of study could be applied to a specific industry with current data and issues, instead of focusing solely on textbook problems and cases. The opportunity to participate in the inaugural MBA German program added significant cultural experiences and a greater understanding of international business."
"As the job market trended downward over the last few years, it became increasingly apparent to me that I needed an MBA to make myself more attractive for advancement. The convenience and affordability of the MBA program at UWF helped me decide to not put it off any longer. I was very impressed with the high caliber of teaching talent that the program has recruited who are able to make learning an engaging and meaningful process."
