Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia Terry College of Business has launched an Online Bachelor of Business Administration Program aimed at full-time employees, military personnel and others looking to upgrade their business skills.
The online BBA is a degree completion program that specifically targets adult learners. Applications are being accepted for enrollment in January 2015.
"This program is designed for individuals who are looking to gain the managerial and analytical skills needed to climb the career ladder," said Benjamin C. Ayers, dean of the Terry College. "The online format provides a more flexible schedule while still giving students access to the high-quality faculty and resources that we have at the University of Georgia."
The program operates on a cohort model, admitting about 40 students each fall, spring and summer semester. A typical student will complete two courses each semester and graduate in three years.
"Terry College of Business has earned a world-class reputation for developing future leaders, and Kimberly-Clark has relied on Terry for many years to provide a consistent talent pipeline that fuels our vision of leading the world in essentials for a better life," said Liz Gottung, senior vice president and chief human resources officer for Kimberly-Clark Corp. in Roswell. "I'm proud of the spirit of innovation that I see at Terry, which is now extending access to excellence in business instruction to whole new audiences in the workforce."
The online curriculum supports a general business major, which provides a broad background of practical business knowledge for careers as managers or entrepreneurs.
Applicants need to have completed 60 credit hours of general education and pre-business courses at an accredited institution.
