The flexibility to choose classes enhances the value of your education by enabling you to design a curriculum that's specific to your academic interests and long-term career goals.
One of the many strengths of the Georgia Tech's MBA program is flexibility. We encourage you to think creatively to build a program of study that meets your long-term, professional goals. In addition to core coursework, you will choose 24 hours of graduate electives, including one required international elective.
Elective courses help you develop an expertise within specific areas of business management. You can focus your curriculum completely in one area for a deep knowledge base, or select a wide array of courses from different areas to develop a broad perspective on business management.
Choosing your coursework is exciting, and important. Our Graduate Office staff is always available to help you design your course of study.
Will I be at a disadvantage if I haven't completed any business coursework?
No. While the MBA core courses move at a fast pace, they do not assume any prior business coursework.
How do students with non-technical backgrounds perform?
Students from all academic and professional backgrounds that are innovative and hard working excel in our program.
Do I have to declare a concentration?
You do not have to declare a concentration and you may customize your curriculum by choosing electives from a variety of academic areas.
Can I schedule my classes on a flexible basis?
Yes, you can take as few or as many courses each semester as your schedule permits.
