Available at the Milledgeville Campus.
Why Choose an MBA Designed for Non-Business Majors?
As a student in the arts or sciences, you have developed skills for logical arguments, the ability to integrate theory, and the cognitive ability to look at issues from multiple perspectives. In our MBA for the non-business graduate, we focus on the practical reasoning aspect of critical thinking and a classical liberal education. This degree program gives you the business and organizational skills to make your passions a reality.
When I worked in the nonprofit sector after college, I was painfully aware of how little I knew about accounting and business. I spent a lot of time educating myself—using the lifelong learning skills I had developed as a humanities undergraduate. The value of this MBA program is that you do not have to invent the wheel on your own—and you will be in the company of other students who come from non-business undergraduate degree programs.
You will graduate with an MBA, and the core knowledge and skills to be successful in any organization: business, nonprofit, or public service. You will also have your own business plan to start your own venture, whatever that may be. Georgia College was the second school in the University System of Georgia to offer the MBA degree, and we have over forty years of graduates who will instantly be a part of your professional network.
We look forward to sharing in your success.
