From the Director: Fall is here!

MBA students at on the Challenge Course during Orientation
Although the temperatures are still in the 90's most days, it is officially fall in Athens. Our MBA students completed an intense 2+ weeks of Orientation on August 10th, and classes for all students started on August 15. The first football game of the season is next weekend. It’s great to be a UGA MBA Bulldawg in the fall. This season is one of the greatest times of the year to be in Athens. You can enjoy a southern breakfast at Mama’s Boy, take a stroll in the UGA Founder’s Garden, spend Saturday’s at Sanford Stadium cheering on the Dawgs, and then hit the downtown scene for the evening. There are endless opportunities to spread your social wings this fall in Athens. 

Not only is it UGA football season, but we also have tons of events coming up for our MBAs. In September alone we have our Fall Recruiting Kickoff, the UGA Fall Career Fair, and the Prospanica Conference in Houston, just to name a few. 

Also, autumn in Athens is a great time for prospective students to visit campus. If you are interested in learning more about the Full-Time MBA program a
Campus Visit Day may be the best option for you! Coming to one of these events will give you the opportunity to tour our new building, Correll Hall, and meet with current MBA students and MBA staff. You can choose a date that works best for you. Feel free to reach out to our Full-Time Admissions Staff at if you would like further information about the program or Campus Visit Days. We look forward to seeing you this fall in Athens!
