If you're interested in breaking into finance, check out our Private Equity Course and Investment Banking Course, which help thousands of candidates land top jobs every year.

University of Florida

The University of Florida is a public research facility in Gainesville, Florida. UFlorida has highly-regarded athletics and consistent placements into investment banking. Of note, UFlorida offers an elite Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program that is a strong pipeline to the top investment banks.

UFlorida is ranked #44 on our investment banking target school list, earning it a designation as a lower semi-target school. UFlorida's distribution of investment banking placements is quite lopsided, in which top-tier offers are reserved for a very small group of students.

UFlorida is home to the Warrington College of Business, which offers business programs for both graduates and undergraduates.

UFlorida Campus

UFlorida has a strong Elite Firms % of 46%, which indicates that nearly half of all graduates end up at one of the top 5 investment banks. This is largely-driven by UFlorida's extremely strong relationship with Evercore, which represents 29% of all of UFlorida's hires. (Sidenote: This certainly coincides with my experience at Evercore, which recruited a ton of Gators).

UFlorida is held back on our ranking by its Undergrad Placement % of 0.10%, which suggests that a large proportion of students do not have great finance opportunities.

UFlorida Placement Data

Our investment banking target school list is a complete rank of 60 schools and analyzed >60k LinkedIn profiles of professionals who worked in investment banking between 2008 and 2023. We filtered the data to examine U.S. hires into the top investment banks.
