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.
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
