One Year Full-Time MBA for Non-Business Students

We have moved our advising offices to the Downtown Orlando Executive Development Center.

The One Year Full-Time MBA is a 12-month program focused on non-business students who wish to obtain an MBA and gain professional work experience at the same time. Applicants selected for the One Year MBA program will take courses restricted to students in a cohort group, and students will be able to choose from a variety of internship and elective options. The One Year MBA begins each fall semester and is a limited access program. Students must complete the foundation core before beginning the MBA program in the fall. While many one-year MBA programs are offered at a premium cost, our program requires you to pay no additional tuition costs other than regular graduate tuition rates. For program information, please call (407) 235-3917 or contact us via email .
