Full-Time MBA Curriculum
Become the leader you want to be with the Georgia MBA
Your MBA experience extends beyond the classroom and begins before you arrive on campus. We’ve designed the curriculum to develop your business knowledge and skills, to improve your teamwork and peer leadership skills, and provide you with specialized knowledge that aligns with your career goals.
Summer Academic Preparation
Setting you up for success in our program means starting the fall semester well-prepared to handle the rigorous quantitative course load. Experience shows that students without the pre-requisite skills in these areas are at a significant disadvantage in the job search. Georgia MBA Foundation courses are designed to help you master those skills in your core courses.
Orientation takes place 1-2 weeks before the start of classes and focuses on three core elements: team building, additional academic preparation, and internship and job search preparation.
Our curriculum is flexible, market-driven, and intentionally organized to prepare you for your summer internship. The first semester focuses on core classes. The remaining three semesters allow you to pursue your concentration option, other electives, and/or several experiential learning opportunities, both for credit and to satisfy your community service requirement.
The 8 core courses are: Financial Accounting, Financial Management, Marketing Management, Economic Analysis for Business Leaders, Applied Business Statistics, Strategic Management, Operations Management, and Organizational Behavior. Additional required courses are Data Analytics (which can be taken in the second year), Legal Environment of Business, and Communications Tools for Career Effectiveness.
Our semesters are divided into two 7 ½-week modules. Four core courses are modular and four are semester long. 60 credits are required for graduation. Elective options can be used to fulfill concentration requirements, specialization interests, or to take courses outside of the Terry College. Up to 6 credits can apply toward your graduation requirements.
