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. We offer the Finish in Five at the main campus in Pensacola, the Emerald Coast Campuses, and Ludwigshafen, Germany.

Our MBA is designed for the time-constrained working professional, with a comprehensive integrated curriculum geared toward current business practices. The Finish in Five Program allows the qualified student an opportunity to complete his or her MBA in five semesters, with guaranteed course availability. In addition, participants complete their classes with a cohort of working professionals from education, government, industry and the military.

Accelerated MBA Foundations provide a series of intensive short-courses covering the essential foundational knowledge needed to enter the Finish in Five MBA Program. This sequence provides a vehicle for participants to quickly meet MBA proficiencies if necessary.
