The Coggin College of Business has always emphasized academic
excellence through its curricula and faculty. The MBA program focuses on
developing a general management perspective and offers intensive graduate level
study in accounting, economics, decision sciences, finance, management, and
marketing. Throughout the program, emphasis is given to policy formulation and
the interrelationships of business disciplines. Applications in ethics, total
quality management, international business, information technology, and
value-based management are included in anticipation of 21st century
The MBA program enrolls about 550 students, mostly working
professionals of the Northeast Florida area.
The typical MBA student takes two courses each term while working fulltime.
About 20 percent of the MBA’s are full-time students taking three or more
courses per term. This mix of employed, part-time students having several years
of managerial experience with full-time students enhances the classroom
environment substantially. Most MBA classes are offered Monday and Wednesday or
Tuesday and Thursday evenings, some weekends and some afternoons.
The MBA program is designed for students with any bachelor’s
degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Students with
non-business degrees prepare for graduate business study by completing
appropriate Foundation Courses. The MBA advanced program is 36 semester hours
(9 core courses plus 3 electives). While the MBA is designed as a generalist
degree, students may specialize through their choice of electives and approved
Graduate classes are typically smaller than undergraduate
classes, which facilitates increased interaction between individual students
and the faculty member teaching the course.
Classes are often conducted on a traditional
face-to-face classroom basis.
On a very limited scale, we also offer some blended learning
classes. These classes meet occasionally
throughout the semester while a large portion of learning is provided
Additionally, we offer some transformational learning
opportunities through faculty led study abroad courses and our semester
exchange program. Short term Faculty led study abroad, one or two weeks,
provides MBA students with the opportunity to learn about business environment
in a foreign country while obtaining credit towards their degree. Students with
interest in having a longer experience abroad we offer semester exchange
opportunities and the GlobalMBA and Ibero-AmericanMBA programs.

prerequisites for courses, registering for classes in a timely manner,
presenting all assignments as instructed by the professor, and being present
during all required class meetings.
