Program Details


The Stetson MBA is offered online to students enrolled in the UF Online MS in Pharmacy program. Program administration is streamlined, such that the same e-learning platforms are used in both programs, and admission to the Stetson program is guaranteed, provided satisfactory progress in the UF program.


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 Pharmacy program, and 27 credits in the Stetson MBA 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 MS 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 MS. After UF graduation, students return to Stetson to finish their MBA coursework.

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