Athens has both small-town charm and a penchant for eclecticism, and since it’s just a hop away from Atlanta, our students can easily take advantage of the many amenities both cities offer.
Situated at the center of the University of Georgia’s historic and beautiful campus, the Terry College of Business enjoys all the benefits of being a collaborative learning community within a nationally prominent research university.
Terry’s state-of-the-art home, the Business Learning Community, is a modern, collaborative learning, teaching and working environment for students, faculty and staff.
