These are the ‘must-have’ subjects, according to MBA students. UF MBA has courses in each.

When enrolling in an MBA program, students have different goals when it comes to what they want to get out of the program. Some want to get a new job, others want to get a promotion and some want to change industries entirely.

The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) recently surveyed prospective students about what they want most out of an MBA program. In that survey, GMAC asked what subjects are a “must-have” for Full-Time students in their curriculum. According to the survey, the top subjects Full-Time MBA candidates are excited by are:

  1. Strategy – 69 percent
  2. Leadership/change management – 59 percent
  3. Data analytics – 57 percent
  4. International business/management – 55 percent
  5. Entrepreneurship/innovation – 54 percent

If subjects like these interest you, UF MBA offers a number of courses in each. Check out some of the classes UF MBA offers in strategy, leadership, data analytics, international business and entrepreneurship below!
