Throughout Georgia State, there is a strong “focus on getting the MBA student where they want to go” in their career. While many part-time students aren’t necessarily seeking a new job after graduation, they are nonetheless pleased that “the school leverages its location in a vibrant business city and its connections to business leaders to give students access to reputable companies for academic and career purposes.” “Individual career counseling is made available as part of the program,” and students have access to myriad services through the Robinson Career Management Center in the business school. There are frequent career development workshops on campus, as well as a few recruiting events. At the same time, “The job selection through the career placement center is limited,” as the program lacks a large community of job seekers. A student explains, “We don’t have a full-time program, so companies don’t recruit at GSU like they do at Emory and GT.” In recent years, many important companies have hired MBA grads from Georgia State, including Hewitt Associates, Tauber & Balser PC, KPMG LLP, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Deloitte Consulting, Towers Perrin, Federal Reserve Bank of New York, McKesson Corporation, UPS, Wells Fargo, GE Healthcare, KPMG UNUM Corporation, Frazier & Deeter LLC, Ernst & Young LLP, and Wachovia Securities. The average starting salary for PMBA graduates is $75,000, with a range between $45,000 and $150,000 annually. Flexible MBA students earn an average salary of about $65,000.
