Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business offers a welcoming atmosphere that encourages involvement and fosters ambition.
Student organizations, group projects, clubs, and initiatives on campus, in the surrounding corporate community, and abroad provide ample opportunities to broaden your experience and build an impressive resume.
A community within itself
MBA students meet every week to socialize. Many social events are open to spouses, family, and friends. In fact, students often comment that they feel like members of a close-knit, supportive network. The small size of our program (75 students per year) enables students and faculty to get to know each other personally, building bonds and networks that last a lifetime.
Student-led Clubs and Organizations
Through student clubs, community service projects, and social events, you'll have a variety of venues to be involved with fellow MBA students, alumni, faculty, administrators, and the business community.
Graduate Business Council
As a Georgia Tech MBA student you are automatically a lifetime member of the Graduate Business Council (GBC). Its main purpose is to foster student involvement and encourage development of leadership roles and interaction in the MBA program.
In addition to social activities, GBC arranges networking events with alumni, organizes intramural sporting teams and works closely with faculty and administration. We encourage students to get involved in GBC, as time spent outside the classroom is just as important to your personal and professional development as academics.
Clubs enhance the interaction between students, faculty and the business community. These goals are accomplished through speakers, conferences and case competitions.

Growing interest in the Net Impact chapter at Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business coincides with the business school's increasing emphasis on sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Net Impact is an international network of graduate students and young professionals using the power of business to effect positive economic, environmental, and social change. As a member of the Georgia Tech MBA Net Impact Chapter, you'll have opportunities to participate in the Board Fellows Program, Pro Bono Consulting, and local and national competitions and conferences.
