Scheller College of Business – Georgia Institute of Technology

The Georgia Tech Full-Time MBA Program Structure

The Georgia Tech full-time MBA program at the Scheller College of Business is designed to be undertaken in two years. It involves three main components: 12 core courses (21 semester hours), an optional summer internship, and 11 electives (33 semester hours).

Curriculum

The Georgia Tech full-time MBA program requires 12 core courses that cover business fundamentals. The majority of core classes take place in the first semester of the 22-month program, with the majority of electives taking place during the second year. With core courses out of the way, students in their second years can focus more on electives chosen to fit particular interests, except for one required international business course that enables global business competency to be developed; elective courses span fields including accounting, business analytics, entrepreneurship, sustainability, and strategic management.

Class Profile

Students in the full-time MBA program have an average of five years of professional work experience. The average GMAT and GPA earned by these students are 620-730 (80th percentile) and 3.4, respectively. Across all Scheller graduate programs just under 30 percent of students are women.

Careers

Scheller is home to the Jones MBA Career Center, which is designed to help all MBA students with job search preparation. They help identify opportunities for internships and employment through one-on-one advisement, an eight-week career development workshop, self-assessment tools, interview preparation and a series of conferences and career fairs.

Tuition & Financial Aid

Georgia Tech full-time MBA students can expect to pay a total of about $29,232 a year (for Georgia residents) or $40,180 a year (for out-of-state residents), as well as $2,010 in mandatory fees.

Financial assistance is available in the form of federal loans, graduate assistantships, and a limited number of fellowships.
