I am thinking about getting MBA degree in a near future and i'm starting to look for schools in Tampa area. I know there is USF with their 2-3 year part time program.

I'd like to ask if any of you guys would recommend USF or some other school to get my degree. I plan working while in school and take classes part time with evening classes.

Any information would be great, especially cost, since schools don't really put their prices on the website

U of Tampa offers a program for working professionals. It meets every other saturday for 24 months.

I know... you are all asking yourselves... "Is there anything this guy doesn't know?"

I am actually a google bot. I am not a human being at all. CityData forums pays google a monthly fee for my services.

Actually, I have looked into this very program. Additionally, research has been a huge part of my career for 10 years, I am one of those people that either knows the answer, or can get it within 20 seconds, regardless of where I am. I always have to be connected to information. I also really really like to help people... I dont know why. Too bad all the jobs where you help people pay like crap.

Also, when I have downtime- I read about random stuff that most people never think about. Yesterday I was curious about where the term "caucasian" came from, so I researched it. Once I spent hours researching the worlds oil reserves, and how oild is refined, mostly because I was interested, partially so I could one-up everyone right here in CityData in an oil spill thread!

Well the University of Tampa weekend program has 5 year field experience with at least two in managerial (how this thing is even a word?) position. Graduated Spring of 2010 from Computer Science and Engineering which is miles away from business and now work as a consultant with PM position. My on field experiences are nowhere near close to what requirements are. I'll take a look at part time classes but then i have to take gmat ... So not looking forward to that

Yeah- I guess I didnt figure in the fact that you just got out of college. The GMAT wont be so bad. Nothing some adderall wont prepare you for.

I know people are reading that and doing this right now...

I dont have a thought filter.

Very interesting - you probably get some internal reward from helping others. I think that's why a lot of people go into service industries. Also interesting about reading up on topics - very inquisitive. Good quality, imo. You'd probably live in a library had the internet not been invented.

I can see why they require the experience. You have to bring life experiences to the program - my Masters program had a few newly graduated Bachelor's program students and you could tell that they didn't have as much to offer in the classroom.

I have a method I use- that would be very difficult without the internet. I start off with wikipedia, and I will just read about an interesting topic, Yesterday it was the origin of "tapas". I will just read along, with my finger on the control button and I will click on any word that is another topic that interests me. Before you know it, I have 20 tabs open on internet explorer, and it could essentially be a never ending research project that really serves no purpose other than to fill my mind with information ranging from useful to useless.

I do fact check my information with references. I am also the same guy that will read about the same political news topic twice. Once on fox news, once on msnbc.

Sad thing for me is that I am a horrible student in school. I am more of a "freelance researcher".

I spent today reading about telecommunications in Mexico. Dont ask me how I got there. I think I was originally looking at what it takes to move to Mexico. I now know exactly what it takes to move there, to include the easier border crossings (Nogalas, just south of Tuscon is the easiest and cheapest if you were wondering). I also know what cellular provider is the best, I even spent time on GSM world looking at coverage maps- and google translated the companies websites to read about them. haha. Some knowledge is useless I guess...

Sorry Tewas for getting off topic here. in an attempt to get this train back on the tracks, if UF offers online classes for an MBA, they have the 36th best business program in the country, according to Forbes (useful information- haha).
