Offered through the Terry College of Business, the University of Georgia Online MBA was designed to meet the needs of your life and career, providing the same MBA degree as our other MBA Formats including the Full Time MBA (Athens), Executive MBA (Hybrid-Atlanta), and Professional MBA (Hybrid-Atlanta). As students continue to work full-time, they can view their Online MBA course content in 10- to 15- minute increments while hitting course milestones throughout each module. While the program is 100% online, students will network with their fellow classmates by working in teams to complete course assignments and objectives and connect with their professors during pre-scheduled live office hours. The Online MBA can be completed part-time in 17, 20, or 23 months.

During the first 5 modules of the program, students will take 2 courses at a time following a lock-step schedule. The Online MBA program requires 10-20 hours of commitment per week, and the asynchronous class structure offers the convenience and flexibility for you to pursue a world-respected MBA degree wherever you are.

Leadership Focus

The Online MBA degree prepares you to lead with course offerings that deepen your understanding of business fundamentals, strategy, and leadership through a focus on theory and practice. Online MBA students experience an immediate impact in their work by applying what they learn to what they do.

Online MBA students can pursue optional certificates in Leading Change, Workforce Diversity, or a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. Students can also pursue optional concentrations in Finance/Accounting, Leadership/Human Resource Management, Innovation/Entrepreneurship, or Operations Management.
