Full-Time alumnus and U.S. Army veteran Chris DiBiase (MBA ’20) credits the program’s strong ROI and individualized career services with helping him land his role as a senior strategy consultant with Accenture without having to worry about using his salary to pay off student debt.

“I was most impressed by UF’s placement statistics and career services approach,” he told Poets & Quants. “The director of career services from UF interviewed me, but this was different from every other program where I had little to no interaction with career services as part of admissions. As a small-program with ~30-35 admits in each cohort, I realized that we would have a lot of attention from career services, which was important to me leaving the military.

“Without a doubt, this approach enabled me to land with a top consulting firm and earn my MBA completely debt-free.”
