Alumni & Friends
Alumni engagement plays a key role in the UF MBA program’s success. An active and engaged alumni network is essential to our students and program, creating opportunities for students to connect with professionals in their fields of interest. As a result, UF MBA is always looking for alumni to match with students in our unique engagement program!
Connecting students with alumni not only positions students for success as they enter the workforce, it drives the UF MBA program’s success and expands the Gator network. Over the past several years, many of you have guided our students and have provided invaluable resources towards their professional and personal development. We greatly appreciate your efforts!
To show our appreciation, UF MBA is also doing more to give back and support your efforts with rewards and support for your efforts. Contact us for more information!
