MBA offerings expanded to include health care, human resource management

The UGA Terry College of Business has broadened its full-time MBA offerings to include new concentrations in health care and human resource management, a new area of emphasis in consulting, and a completely redesigned leadership program.

“The new concentrations, emphasis in consulting and renewed focus on leadership are a direct reflection of the needs we hear from employers,” said Santanu Chatterjee, director of the Full-Time MBA Program and an associate professor of economics. “We pride ourselves on producing graduates who are ready to hit the ground running on the day after graduation. The new courses of study we’ve introduced will help our graduates be even more valuable to their employers.”

The health care management concentration gives students a solid foundation in how business principles apply to health care organizations, while the human resource management concentration emerged in response to both student and employer requests. It takes a quantitative approach toward managing human capital in complex organizations.

The new area of emphasis in consulting combines both case-based and hands-on coursework to prepare students for consulting careers across a variety of industries.

The MBA Leadership Fellows program has been completely revised to focus on crisis management and service-learning, in partnership with the Athens Area Community Foundation. It enhances the MBA Program’s experiential learning component.
