The state of Florida has always attracted the bold and the visionary, those drawn to land's end, willing to take the risk of shaping their own destiny.
As the state's premiere research institution, the University of Florida has provided business education to the builders of tomorrow, the men and women who shape the future of commerce in our state, our nation - our world.

The University of Florida was established in 1853 and the College of Business Administration was created in 1927. In 1946, MBA degrees were first awarded at UF. The Fisher School of Accounting was established in 1977 and, in 1996, the College received a major endowment from 1958 alumnus Alfred C. Warrington IV and was renamed in his honor.
The University of Florida is a land-grant university, established to serve the needs of the state's citizenry. In keeping with UF's mission, the Warrington College of Business (WCB) offers degree programs from the undergraduate to the doctoral level. The College also serves other stakeholders by developing outstanding business people and providing solutions to business problems.
The programs of the WCB are fully accredited by AACSB-The International Association for Management Education, the premier accrediting agency for bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs in business administration and accounting.

The WCB is committed to: developing interpersonal and total management skills through team and small group work; providing opportunities for development of leadership skills; promoting academic mastery of classroom skills, and fostering the habits and attitudes that constitute a research ethic.
