Not a UF MBA grad, but did a Master’s program in the Hough school of business there as well as undergrad. Feel free to DM.
Hey there! I’m not sure if relevant but I recently got accepted to the 2yr FT program. Feel free to reach out!
Have you decided where you are going? Would love to know what you heard about the UF online program!
I did the UF MBA online - graduating in 2014. I was a fulltime employee working 50+ hours/week. At the time I was traveling for work from Florida to Boston every two weeks. I found the MBA incredibly difficult based on time management and balancing the coursework with my job responsibilities. Honestly, it almost broke me. The 100% online program to me is harder than in-person or the working professional program because the online professors pepper you with multiple assignments and quizzes throughout the week. For example, I recall having two quizzes and a paper due every Sunday - meaning I had to read all the material and prepare for the quizzes/paper on Saturday because I was so busy at work. I was working all week, reading at home/hotels in the evenings or on airplanes, and catching up on Saturdays to have everything ready by Sunday. I was working non-stop whether it was work or school. Finals were in Gainesville on a Saturday, I'd take vacation days Thurs/Friday to cram. My personal life was nil. It was the toughest/busiest 2+ years of my life. In the end it was worth it though. That whole experience made me smarter and a much more resilient human being overall.
