Georgia Southern University offers its full-time MBA on-site at both the Savannah and Statesboro campus as well as online. Students in either format can access campus services no matter where they are, giving the program a significant edge in flexibility.
On the other hand, the MBA curriculum at Georgia Southern is fairly rigidly designed. Students in the General MBA program need to complete 10 courses to graduate, nine of which are required; there’s only room to take one elective. To earn an MBA with an area of concentration, students need to devote their elective slot to the concentration and take two additional courses, bringing the total for the program to 36 credit hours. Three concentrations are available: Health Services Administration, Information Systems and International Business.
One significant advantage of the MBA program at Georgia Southern is the potential opportunity to apply some MBA coursework to several certificate programs, reducing the time and cost required to earn a graduate certificate. Presently, the College of Business offers certificates in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Applied Economics and Nonprofit Management.
