The Princeton Review recognizes UF MBA for program quality

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – UF MBA at the Hough Graduate School of Business placed in the top 10 in the “Best Administered” and “Best Classroom Experience” categories in The Princeton Review’s “Best 295 Business Schools 2016″ edition.

UF MBA ranked third in the nation in the “Best Administered” category, and was the top-ranked public school in this group. The “Best Administered” ranking is based on student answers to survey questions concerning “how smoothly the school is run, and the ease with which students can get into required and popular courses.”

UF MBA has been routinely recognized in this category, and was ranked the No. 1 “Best Administered” program in 2013 and 2014.

“We are dedicated to providing our students the personal attention they need to efficiently navigate the administrative aspects of our program,” said Dr. Alex Sevilla, Assistant Dean and Director of UF MBA Programs. “It is immensely gratifying to see our student affairs team recognized year after year by The Princeton Review for its excellence.”

UF MBA ranked eighth in “Best Classroom Experience,” which measured “professors’ teaching abilities and recognition in their fields, the integration of new business trends and practices in the curricula, the intellectual level of their classmates’ contributions in course discussions, and whether the business school is meeting their academic expectations.” UF MBA was third among public schools in this category, which included MBA programs from Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford and NYU.

“A truly transformational MBA experience requires an environment that brings the best out of all those involved—students, faculty and staff,” Dr. Sevilla said. “That our students have responded so approvingly to the UF MBA experience is incredibly validating.”

UF MBA has enjoyed a stellar 2015. The program has been recognized favorably in national rankings from U.S. News & World Report, Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes, The Economist and the Financial Times, as well as posting exceptional results in mean salaries plus bonuses ($109,000) and placement rate three months after graduation (96%).

Offering a progressive curriculum and delivering cutting-edge concepts in areas of greatest demand from employers, UF MBA provides an unmatched educational experience. UF MBA offers three Full-Time options, and six part-time options within its Executive, Online and Professional programs.
