    I opted for this University due to its affluent reputation in the area and history of success. The admissions process was simple, and allowed either GRE or GMAT scores, and required 2 letters of recommendation. I wanted to go to a university with a strong reputation as I was transitioning from an undergraduate degree in biology to the MBA program and UT has a history of strong matching with courses and coaches that can relate to your career paths. Additionally, the University of Tampa is a top-ten best value MBA program and consistently ranked within the best MBA programs.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is tough. UT is set up where all MBA students must take the program seriously, with grading on a +/- system, and a low tolerance for poor grades. Any student receiving more than two C level grades are dismissed from the program with no grade forgiveness. That being said, the curriculum is also impressive, with courses partnered with outstanding individuals, including career coaches boasting multiple authors, Emmy winners, CEOs, founders, and more. The courses are designed to have a real-life impact and are often partnered with local companies to gain experience. I am consistently pushing myself and learning constantly.
