Program Description


The College of Business Administration Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is accredited by AACSB International and offers four options for study: an Executive MBA, the college’s flagship MBA, taught at the UCF Downtown campus; a Professional Part-Time MBA taught at the UCF Downtown campus and regional campuses; a Professional Full-Time MBA taught at the UCF Downtown campus; and a part-time Evening MBA taught at the main campus. 

The MBA program allows students to apply advanced theoretical concepts and knowledge from all functional areas of business through an analytical, decision-making process that focuses on solving practical problems. Students in the MBA program also learn to efficiently access, retrieve, and analyze information through technology. The program promotes the use of networking, leadership, and interpersonal competencies to develop and sustain effective relationships with peers, and to create an appreciation for the value of a diverse workforce.

Foundation Prerequisites


To help prepare you for the start of your MBA program, UCF offers online learning modules in accounting, economics, finance, and business statistics. These are offered through McGraw-Hill’s Connect online learning management system and are designed to help you build the foundational knowledge needed to succeed in the MBA program at UCF. All MBA students are required to take the Initial Assessments for each of the subject areas, and possibly purchase the online learning modules depending in their Initial Assessment results. For more information on the MBA Foundation Prerequisites, click here: https://business.ucf.edu/graduate-programs/.

Curriculum


The Master’s in Business Administration requires a total of 39 credit hours, of which 30 credit hours are professional core courses and 9 credit hours are electives.

Total Credit Hours Required: 39 Credit Hours Minimum beyond the Bachelor’s Degree

The MBA curriculum provides a challenging and creative learning environment in an intensive program of study that has a broad-based administrative emphasis. Recognizing that the management methods of tomorrow may bear little resemblance to techniques in current use, the program emphasizes sound general principles and decision-making techniques that provide a base for continued learning and professional development.
