Our Two-year Traditional curriculum is purposefully aligned to put you at an advantage. Our combination of core and elective courses in the first year, gives you the ability to be more prepared while engaging with corporate recruiters during your internship and career search. After completing the first set of core courses during the fall semester, you are immediately able to begin choosing electives and charting your career path.
The Two-year Traditional program provides the true immersion experience. As a Two-year student, you will have the opportunity to focus entirely on your MBA experience, while involving yourself in student leadership roles, gaining valuable experience through a summer internship and expanding your peer network and professional horizons. The Two-year path provides students who may be considering a career change after earning their MBA with the opportunity to gain experience in their future area of interest first-hand.
The Two-year Traditional program is ideal for candidates who have strong professional and academic backgrounds and are interested in taking advantage of all UF MBA has to offer.
The two-year program offers two major advantages: the opportunity to secure a competitive corporate internship and the chance to completely immerse yourself in the UF MBA experience.
During the first year, students enroll in 12 required business classes and 3 electives, which will provide a solid foundation of functional business skills. Students jump into electives during year one, furthering their knowledge of chosen specializations, which gives them the edge during fall recruiting events and interviewing activities.

Orientation is a required program that includes a Business Boot Camp, and takes place before classes begin. Orientation is a critical part of the MBA experience that introduces you to the key areas of our program that are vital to your success inside and outside the classroom. Business Boot Camp covers three academic areas—Accounting, Business Mathematics and Excel—to give a foundation of knowledge and provide a level of confidence when you step into the MBA classroom. You will meet your classmates, teammates, faculty, advisors and staff. Additionally, you will learn about the culture and traditions that make UF MBA great!
