Students Say

If you’re on the hunt for an MBA program with both great value and a great reputation, you might want to consider University of Central Florida. To begin with, the curriculum offered is geared to ensure that UCF MBAs are “competitive in today’s work environment.” UCF MBAs also have access to some “tremendous” professors. Indeed, instructors here frequently prove themselves to be “both informative and engaging.” And though their “lectures are based on textbook topics” they typically “reach much further than a textbook could go.”

Perhaps the greatest praise is reserved for the “outstanding” administration for the PMBA and EMBA. An appreciative and astonished first-year shares, “They send email[s] on a regular basis making us aware of events near business school that might affect parking. They provide snacks and drinks during breaks outside the classroom. They order in lunch when we have meetings during lunch. . . . They really make an effort to relieve as much of the stress as possible.”

Students here are also quick to note that the EMBA really “cater[s] to working adults with a schedule of [three] Saturdays per month and one Friday.” As a grateful second-year student explains, “This [makes] the program manageable [to] attend without [worrying about] having to miss an excessive amount of work.” In addition, the “concierge service for registration and materials . . . [allows] working professional[s] to concentrate on the course work and . . . [avoid the headache of administrative tasks].” More importantly, since “the program is cohort based,” students are really able to interact with their peers and hear “perspectives from other executives in various industries and fields.”

Campus Life

Students Say

UCF’s College of Business Administration consistently manages to fill its classes with “bright,” “engaging” and “collaborative” students. Many who choose to attend are already “established in their careers” but “looking for an MBA as a way to stand out amongst their peers.” Fortunately, they all “bring different experiences to the table, allow- ing for strong discussions about every topic.” For the most part, UCF MBA candidates are also “self motivated and dedicated to their school work, careers, and companies.” And, perhaps most crucial, students are “sincere, welcoming, and desire to see everyone in the class succeed.” The campus for the PMBA and EMBA programs is “located in downtown Orlando” which proves to be a “conducive environment for working professionals.” As a first-year explains, “We don’t have to drive around trying to find parking on campus.” And, more importantly, the “environment [is] quiet, clean, and [meets our] needs.” Overall, the main UCF campus manages to foster a “very laid back atmosphere,” and stu- dents can sometimes be found “lounging around various spots on campus.” However, the vast majority of MBAs are “busy [with] families [and] full time jobs.” Therefore, it’s quite common for students to attend classes and then depart soon after. Of course, when they want to take a break from studying, Orlando has plenty to offer. From great shops and restaurants to the Disney theme parks, you’ll never get bored in this “multicultural” city!
