Program Details

The program allows students to complete the two master’s degrees much more quickly than they otherwise could. Students generally complete 26 credits in the UF online M.S. program, and 27 credits in the Stetson M.B.A. program. Since each institution accepts 6 transfer credits from the other, the degrees can be completed in just 53 credits

How it Works

Students will begin the program by taking at least one semester of coursework in the UF M.S. program. Students will take a break from their UF coursework to temporarily transition to Stetson for at least 6 credits (1 semester), before going back to UF to finish their M.S. After UF graduation, students return to Stetson to finish their M.B.A. coursework.

Current students MUST notify the program in writing by October 1 if they are interested in attending the M.B.A. program at Stetson.
