Welcome and thank you for your interest in the University of West Florida's Master of Business Administration Program. As you may already know, our MBA is well-regarded and fully accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide, with only the top 4.7% of programs in the world achieving this accreditation.

Our MBA is designed for the time-constrained working professional, with a comprehensive integrated curriculum geared toward current business practices. You are able to choose from a General MBA (33 semester hours) or an MBA with an Area of Emphasis (Accounting, Entrepreneurship and Supply Chain Logistics Management--all 36 semester hours).

We offer our traditional MBA Program at the UWF main campus in Pensacola, at the Emerald Coast Campus, and in Ludwigshafen, Germany. We offer the online MBA Program for those who need flexibility in their schedules. 

UWF’s traditional MBA Program allows the qualified student an opportunity to complete his or her MBA in five semesters. In addition, participants complete their classes with a cohort of working professionals from education, government, industry and the military. Our online MBA offers the convenience of taking classes without the constraints of classroom attendance.

Accelerated MBA Foundations provide a series of intensive short-courses covering the essential foundational knowledge needed to enter the MBA Program. This sequence provides a vehicle for participants to quickly meet MBA business prerequisites.

We are eager to have you attend UWF and want to assist you in your admission. Should you have any questions regarding the MBA Program or need further information, you may email mba@uwf.edu, or call 850-474-3124. We look forward to welcoming you into our program.
