University of Florida Warrington

The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, FL with some programs available in the southern part of the state. It offers both one and two year MBA programs.

Gainesville is located in northern Florida, about 70 miles from Jacksonville and 130 miles from Orlando.
Gainesville is not a particularly large economic area (c. #132) but Orlando is #20 in the US and Jacksonville #49 or so.

EIU04 ranked Florida #89 worldwide, above Georgia and South Carolina but below William & Mary and Wake Forest.

Value Considerations

The University of Florida is a relatively inexpensive program.

ETO:
In-state: 35k
Out of State: 66k

http://www.floridamba.ufl.edu/FutureStu ... l2year.asp

"A limited number of Florida MBA fellowships are awarded to top candidates. U.S. citizens and permanent residents who have been admitted to the Traditional MBA curriculum are eligible for these competitive, merit-based fellowships. Selection is based on superior academic ability, professional achievement and leadership potential. Candidates should submit their application for admission no later than March 15 for automatic consideration."

One of the few schools to offer 1-year M.S. Degrees in Marketing, or M.A. in International Business.

For those interested in a shorter alternative to the MBA, this might be a good school to look at.

Also a good school for those interested in Sports Management (Sports Administration concentration available) given the geographical location and number of professional and collegiate sports teams in the area:

NBA: Orlando Magic, Miami Heat
NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins
MLB: Florida Marlins
NCAA: Florida State, U of Florida, U of Miami, FIU

How about their online MBA program? Is it worth it? Does anybody have any experience/comment regarding their online program?

I've just been accepted to the UF Internet MBA program. I'll have more info for you in Feb, when it starts, but I can tell you why I went with UF. I am in the Navy and unable to attend full time. The executive/professional programs available in my area are not well respected. The UF Internet MBA tries to mimic the traditional expirience as much as possible. All the lectures are given via video files from the same prfs as the traditional program. The classes are divided into cohorts, so you have the same team expirience. The finals and course orientations are held at UF, so you meet your face to face with your profs and fellow students atleast 3 times a year. And the career services the school offers helps with the networking you expect from a solid MBA program. Finally, its the #1 Internet MBA according to the Economist, and its coming from the #37 traditional MBA program according to US News & World Report. If you can't attend a traditional program, I think this option is one of the best.
