The curriculum for the One-Year — Business Majors program eliminates most core courses completed at the undergraduate level and instead allows you to focus more quickly on the skills demanded by your chosen career. Students in the One-Year — Business Majors program join the second-year and One-Year — Business Majors program students for elective courses during the fall and spring semesters. The UF MBA elective courses offer the opportunity for you to focus on areas specific to your career path, while also earning concentrations and certificates. Typically, students take three to four total courses per module.

During the summer term, your small cohort will engage in an intensive series of courses that are critical for all MBA students. These courses will best prepare you for the elective courses you will select in the fall and spring semesters. Graduate course descriptions provide more information on these courses.
