GAINESVILLE, Fla. – UF MBA at the University of Florida Warrington College of Business made an impressive 23-place jump among U.S. business schools to the No. 32 spot on Bloomberg Businessweek’s Best Business Schools 2019-20 Ranking.

UF MBA also leapt 16 places among U.S. public schools to No. 11, placing it close to its recent top 10 rankings from The Economist and U.S. News & World Report.

“We’re proud to see such an exceptional jump in the rankings from Bloomberg Businessweek,” said John Gresley, Assistant Dean and Director of UF MBA. “Our ascension reflects not only the positive experience students have at UF MBA, but also the significant changes we’ve made to our program in order to give our students the very best experience and outcomes.” 

Bloomberg Businessweek ranks MBA programs based on four categories: Compensation (37.3 percent), Networking (25.7 percent), Learning (21.3 percent) and Entrepreneurship (15.7 percent). UF MBA earned more than 60 points in three of the categories, placing it in the top half of all U.S. programs.

  • Compensation – 68.3 points – No. 33 among U.S. schools
  • Networking – 68.4 points – No. 34 among U.S. schools
  • Learning – 65.5 points – No. 45 among U.S. schools

The Bloomberg Businessweek ranking is based on data compiled from more than 9,000 students, 14,920 alumni, 900 corporate recruiters, and compensation and job-placement data from each school. The UF MBA alumni surveyed reported starting salaries as high as $118,000 in the consulting industry and $110,000 in the health care and energy industries.

More than half of UF MBA alumni also rated the campus atmosphere as ‘extremely positive’ in the climate ratings for women, racial, ethnic and religious minorities, the LGBTQ+ community, people with physical disabilities and people of all socioeconomic backgrounds. They also noted the best aspects of UF MBA include its career services, faculty, fellow students and small cohort size.

The stellar on-campus experience of UF MBA is complimented by its strong ROI and 100 percent tuition scholarships, which are awarded to cover tuition and fees for qualified in-state and out-of-state students admitted to the full-time program.
