We understand the challenges you face as women in management and we are committed to your success. The Georgia 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 30% 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. Each year, MBA students are selected to participate in the Sea Island Scholars Cohort, an experiential learning opportunity with notable Terry alumnae and supporters.
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, GWBA hosted the Driving Change Women’s Summit and workshops on salary negotiation and gender diversity led by Dr. Marie Mitchell, Professor of Management.
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 300,000+ University of Georgia living alumni, including the Women of UGA.
