What began as the School of Commerce in 1912 is now a nationally competitive school that graduates more than 2,500 students each year. Along the way, we added degree programs, institutes, campuses, faculty members and the Business Learning Community, a six-building hub in the heart of UGA’s campus. From humble beginnings, Terry has become a leader in business education. With the continued support of our community, the possibilities are endless.
To sustain this level of progress, Terry relies heavily on private support. Gifts to the Terry Excellence Fund, our most versatile resource, help us attract and retain outstanding faculty, provide scholarships and unique learning opportunities for our students and supplement day-to-day operating expenses while providing consistent funds for future planning.
You may also make a financial gift to the Terry department of your choice. These targeted gifts support essential faculty and student opportunities within our top-ranked academic programs.
Our Master of Science in Business Analytics combines big data and strategic decision-making, teaching hard and soft skills attractive to data-driven companies. Certificates in FinTech, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability give students the knowledge to launch and grow smart, innovative, ethical businesses. The Full-Time MBA offers areas of focus in FinTech, Strategy and Social Innovation, while undergraduates can choose from areas of emphasis that include Human Resource Analytics, Operations/Supply Chain Management and Data Analytics.
Our faculty elevate scholarship and improve global business practices through their leading research and innovative teaching. Terry faculty continue to have their work published in top journals worldwide, and our academic departments are consistently ranked highly for research productivity.
Because of the incredible generosity of our friends and alumni, Terry continues to grow. Your support helps us create endowed distinguished professorships and directorships to attract and retain outstanding faculty, fund scholarships and aid to help ensure financial need is not a barrier to a Terry education, and provide study abroad scholarships to foster students’ global competencies.

Securities are the most common form of property given to non-profit institutions. The Terry College of Business and University of Georgia encourage gifts of:
With a gift of appreciated securities held for the required holding period, donors are entitled to a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value (FMV) of the stock in the year of the gift. The FMV is determined by the mean of the high and low sales prices on the date the stock is given to Terry.
The charitable deduction is limited to 30 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income with a five-year carryover for any amount that exceeds the 30 percent limitation. Gifts of appreciated stocks are particularly attractive since the donor will generally not incur a capital gains tax on stock given to Terry.
Note Please check with University of Georgia before making any gifts of securities.
