Master of Business Administration (MBA)
The MBA Program at the Scheller College of Business provides a professional management education for students with baccalaureate degrees in any discipline. Calculus is the only prerequisite. The MBA is an innovative and rigorous program with a technical and quantitative instructional focus. Highly qualified candidates from all academic backgrounds enter the program, which is designed to foster teamwork and a closely knit class.
The MBA Program is offered in both full-time and evening formats. For the full-time program, entry is in the fall semester only. For the evening program, admission is offered in both fall and spring semesters. Excellence in management education has long been a hallmark of Georgia Tech. The Georgia Tech MBA helps students develop the skills they will need to effectively lead in the high-tech, global businesses of the twenty-first century, and the vision and ingenuity to become valued leaders in their fields. At Georgia Tech, MBA students are exposed to the social, environmental, political, and international factors shaping the global marketplace. Some of the primary advantages of the MBA program include a close community that promotes enriched student-faculty relationships; classmates with diverse educational and work experiences; small class sizes that foster group cooperation and a true understanding of the business environment; an innovative curriculum that keeps pace with the rapidly changing environment of technology and management; and a wide range of educational, social, and professional opportunities in the metro Atlanta area.
During the summer term between the first and second academic years, full-time MBA students work in summer internships with companies ranging from major employers to small entrepreneurial ventures. Summer internships enhance permanent employment opportunities.
The MBA program requires 54 hours; 30 semester hours are core classes. The core courses develop a common body of knowledge essential to all MBA students. The remainder of the curriculum consists of electives, which provide flexibility for students to build competence in one or more concentration areas. This freedom permits students to fashion a curriculum directed toward their own educational and career goals.
MBA elective areas include accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, information technology, international business, marketing, operations management, organizational behavior, and strategic management.
Note: Effective Spring 2010, MBA students are allowed to use up to 4 credit hours of pass/fail courses toward their degree program.
