Women at Terry
Exceed your limits
We understand the challenges you face as women in management and we are committed to your success. The UGA MBA community provides a supportive and structured network for your personal and professional development. We want your UGA experience to be unique, and our goal is to create the learning environment each student needs to thrive and excel at UGA and as a future business leader, irrespective of professional background. More than 25% of the entering classes in the last five years have been female.
Through your engagement with the Terry Graduate Women’s Business Association (GWBA) , the annual Terry Professional Women’s Conference, and other mentoring and networking activities, including those with the Terry Women's Initiative, you will develop lifelong connections to the UGA women’s community. As an example of our commitment to this goal, the Terry Women’s Initiative was recognized by the AACSB as "an innovation that inspires."
The MBA program's GWBA programming focuses on promoting your confidence as a future business leader and providing education on different topics important for a successful career. Most recently, members of the club have participated in round table discussions on women's issues, developed a mentor relationship with the undergraduate Terry Women’s Association, and attended talks with business professionals on topics such as how to negotiate salaries. In addition, GWBA is running a clothing drive for the non-profit, Dress for Success, to help women in the community who are working towards a business career.
In addition, the MBA Career Management Center staff focuses on connecting you with the alumni you need to know. You will have access to our exceptional and accomplished female alumni who have diverse professional, personal, and cultural backgrounds.
These are some of the advantages that come from being in a small program that is part of the larger University of Georgia and Athens communities. Your professional network extends to the almost 300,000 University of Georgia living alumni, many of whom are amazing women.
