Tech Enrolling Students in New Evening MBA Program
Posted January 16, 2007 | Atlanta
Beginning in fall 2007, Georgia Tech's nationally- and internationally-ranked MBA program will be available in an evening format for the first time, allowing working professionals to complete their studies without interrupting their careers.
Application deadlines for enrollment are May 1 for fall 2007 and October 1 to start in spring 2008.
Most students will take two courses each semester (attending classes two nights per week) and complete the program in approximately three years. Georgia Tech College of Management's prestigious full-time MBA program takes two years.
"Our evening MBA students will enjoy the same benefits as full-time students," says Steve Salbu, dean of the business school. "Taught in small classes by professors with world-class reputations for their research and teaching, our students learn how to take advantage of the many business opportunities made possible by emerging technologies and to succeed in an increasingly global economy."
Standards for evening MBA students will remain as high as those required for acceptance into the full-time program, Salbu notes. "Our commitment to technology, innovation, ethical and sustainable business practices, and international education consistently draws top-notch students," he says.
Paula Wilson, director of MBA admissions for Georgia Tech, says interest in the evening option was high before the College of Management even announced it. "We've gotten calls for years from people wanting a part-time MBA program with the Georgia Tech brand and the academic rigor that entails," Wilson says. "Demand for our full-time program remains strong as well. Now people have a choice."
