For alumnus and member of Poets & Quants’ Class of 2020 MBAs to Watch Vladimir Charles (MBA ’20), the UF MBA Full-Time program’s exceptional ROI and small class sizes convinced him to join the program.

“When I decided that the MBA would be the best route for my career pivot looking at a program’s ROI was critical in making my decision because the MBA had to be worth it from a fiscal perspective,” Charles said. “I was also attracted to the intentional small program size because it gave me the opportunity to really have a tailored experience that might be a little more difficult at a larger program.

“You would be hard-pressed to find a program with an ROI as competitive as the UF MBA. I received a full-tuition scholarship, landed a competitive HR internship that turned into my post-MBA full-time role, and made some real friends along the way.”
