The mission of the Graduate Business Association (GBA) is to make the Full-Time MBA student experience as valuable and enjoyable as possible while constantly raising the performance bar.

The GBA has two main priorities: student life and program improvement.

Through student life activities the GBA provides opportunities for students to get to know each other and enjoy life in Athens. The priority is to help build relationships between students to facilitate networking and provide a well-rounded learning environment.  Activities include a welcome back event, happy hours, tailgates, student/faculty mixers, a formal, MBA Follies, an alumni/student golf tournament, and more.

Program improvement efforts focus on our goals of increasing the quality of our experience and value of the MBA degree every single year. The GBA provides feedback and support to the administration and student clubs, while continually raising performance expectations.
