The Birthplace of Public Higher Education in America (source:

Chartered by the state of Georgia in 1785, the University of Georgia is the birthplace of public higher education in America - launching our nation's great tradition of world-class public education. What began as a commitment to inspire the next generation grows stronger today through global research, hands-on learning and extensive outreach. A top value in public higher education and research, the University of Georgia tackles some of the world's grand challenges, from combating infectious disease and creating a dependable food supply to advancing economic growth and strengthening cyber and global security.

As Georgia's flagship institution, the university is recognized for its commitment to student excellence through an emphasis on rigorous learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom, including hands-on research and leadership opportunities. These experiences contribute to the university's exceptional rates in retention, graduation and career placement. Among public universities, the University of Georgia has been one of the nation's top three producers of Rhodes Scholars over the past two decades, and its honors program is ranked as one of the top 10 in the country. The university is also home to the Peabody Awards, the most prestigious prize in electronic media.

Scholars at the University of Georgia are committed to improving quality of life for all and are leaders in pivotal fields, such as vaccine development, regenerative medicine, plant sciences and more. One of the nation's top universities for technology commercialization, the University of Georgia ranked No. 1 in 2017 for total products reaching the market, with more than 725 products to date derived from university research. The University of Georgia has been in the top 20 public universities in overall licensing revenue for 14 consecutive years, ranking No. 12 among public universities and No. 31 overall in 2017.

With its comprehensive reach, the university's 17 colleges and schools enroll more than 37,000 students and have produced over 315,000 alumni living worldwide. The University of Georgia's initiatives extend globally while touching every corner of the state, realizing the university's land- and sea-grant missions. The university's eight Public Service and Outreach units, which are among the strongest in the nation, help create jobs, develop leaders and address critical challenges. Research, outreach and extension serve as major drivers of economic and workforce development and spark successful partnerships that create new businesses and train the workforce of tomorrow.

The university's threefold teaching, research and service mission spans the globe with campuses in five Georgia locations, Washington, D.C., England and Italy, as well as partnerships in more than 50 countries on six continents.

Located in the Classic City of Athens, approximately an hour northeast of Atlanta, the university thrives in a community that combines a culture-rich college town with a strong economic center. The campus is home to nearly 800 registered student and service organizations. The university's athletic programs - 21 varsity athletic teams competing as the Georgia Bulldogs - are among the most successful in NCAA Division I, and its English bulldog mascot, Uga, consistently ranks as one of the nation's most recognizable mascots.

At the University of Georgia, it's more than a mission. It's a commitment we make to our students, the state of Georgia and the world.

The experiential learning courses in the Full-Time MBA program helped me build relationships with leaders in the business community in the state of Georgia, hone my analytical skills and provide meaningful recommendations for operational improvements. I feel well-prepared to lead a team after graduation, am now comfortable asking the tough questions to get to the root of an issue and have a strategic toolkit to deploy whenever I need it. My involvement with our Graduate Business Association and Non-Profit Board Fellows program also allowed me to have some fun and build my network along the way! I wouldn’t trade my experience of being a Georgia MBA for the world!”
Maggie Huffman, MBA '22 Program Manager, R&D Strategy Implementation and Operational Excellence, Bristol Myers Squibb
I started the MBA program at Georgia because like many others I wanted to pivot my career. What I was able to gain beyond that is what makes this program so special. Thanks to the diverse industry expertise of our instructors, I’ll be walking away with practical experience at real-world companies as well as niche industry certifications. And most importantly, the diverse perspectives from my peers in the discussions and conversations both inside and outside of the classroom have been the most invaluable in becoming a better leader. I am grateful to have experienced a program with this level of camaraderie and mutual support, with everyone actively wanting the best for each other from orientation to graduation.
