UF’s Internet M.B.A. program is one of two in the world to earn a rating of “excellent” in The Economist’s “Distance-learning special 2010.”

The Internet M.B.A. program, taught under the Hough Graduate School of Business, allows students to earn their Master of Business Administration degree through a one- or two-year program with classes taught predominantly online.

The ratings, which came out in late February, were based on the program’s content, the quality of the students admitted and the quality of the technology and methods used for distance learning.

“We are very proud of the ‘excellent’ rating by The Economist magazine, particularly because much of the rating comes directly from student feedback on the program,” said Alex Sevilla, assistant dean and director of M.B.A. programs for Warrington College of Business Administration.

UF received perfect 100 ratings in program content and effectiveness of the distance-learning elements but received a rating of “good” rather than excellent in the magazine’s assessment of the quality of the students.

“UF was one of the first top business schools to produce a distance-based M.B.A. program, and that experience equates to program strength via teaching quality, technology advancements and administrative excellence,” Sevilla said.

Daniel Muzzarelli, a 26-year-old financial consultant from Deerfield Beach said he has had a positive experience since he enrolled in UF’s Internet M.B.A. program in January.

“The university has put an unimaginable amount of thought into every aspect of the program experience,” Muzzarelli said. “The classes are extremely demanding and authentic to what I would imagine a traditional program to be. I didn’t think I would get such a quality education from a distance-learning program.”
