The University of Florida is a historic land-grant university founded in 1853 and located in Gainesville FL since 1906. The Warrington College of Business Administration was founded in 1926 and accredited by AACSB International in 1929, making it one of the oldest and most trusted public university business schools in the US.

The Hough Graduate School of Business demonstrates the Warrington College of Business Administration’s historic commitment to forward-thinking in educational methods. One of the first colleges of business to engage in distance learning, first through cable television and now through the internet, the HGSB has a proven track record of quality education and has been acclaimed by The Economist and US News and World Report.

The Working Professional MBA is designed for working professionals who travel, who may relocate, or who have commitments that keep them at home on weekends. The graduate student need only visit the University of Florida campus in Gainesville once per term, for a weekend, to sit for exams and meet next term’s professors. The Hough Graduate School offers two online programs: a conventional two-year option; and a 16-month accelerated program, a competitive option offered in only a few schools.

Application requirements include:

•    Official GMAT scores
•    At least two years professional experience
•    Two letters of recommendation
•    Essays and
•    Personal interview

These programs are for serious, experienced students. Both require at least two years of full-time professional experience, but the average experience for MBA students is 6-8 years. The average student in the program is 28-31 years old, with a GMAT score of 600-610 and a 3.2-3.3 GPA. With such a high-caliber program, it should be no surprise that the program accepts only 65 students per year.
