UF MBA at the Hough Graduate School of Business named Best Administered Program in the nation

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – UF MBA at the Hough Graduate School of Business was named “Best Administered Program” by The Princeton Review in its “The Best 295 Business Schools” 2014 edition.

This marks the second consecutive year UF MBA and the Hough School earned this national acclaim.

“We are extremely pleased that The Princeton Review has again recognized UF MBA at the Hough Graduate School of Business with this outstanding distinction,” said Alex Sevilla, Assistant Dean and Director of UF MBA Programs. “The commitment of our staff and faculty to manage the needs of our students creates an unparalleled learning experience for each and every UF MBA student.”

The Princeton Review tallied its lists based on its surveys of 20,300 students attending 295 business schools. The rankings factor in data from The Princeton Review’s surveys of business school students during the 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years. The survey asked students about their school’s academics, student body and campus life, and their career plans. On average, 68 students at each business school were surveyed for the lists in the 2014 editions. For the Best Administered Program category, student answers to survey questions concerned how smoothly the school is run, and the ease with which students can get into required and popular courses.

In 2013, UF MBA and the Hough School were recognized repeatedly for their excellence. UF MBA celebrated one of its best years in program history in 2012-13 as its Traditional (full-time) and Working Professional (part-time) Programs were both ranked 15th among U.S. public programs by U.S. News & World Report. The Traditional Program was ranked 20th by Bloomberg Businessweek and its Internet MBA Program ranked No. 4 in the nation in U.S. News’ “2013 Best Online Education Programs.” Also, UF MBA’s Executive Program was ranked No. 14 in the world in The Economist’s 2013 “Which MBA?” Executive MBA rankings.

In addition to UF MBA’s recognition, the Hough School was also lauded for its successful Specialized Master’s Programs. The Thomas S. Johnson Master of Science with a major in Entrepreneurship (third), the Master of Arts with a major in International Business (fourth) and the Master of Science in Management (fourth) were all ranked in the top 10 among U.S. public programs in Eduniversal’s Best Masters Rankings 2012/2013.
