The full-time MBA curriculum has a typical structure with a core-heavy first year followed by a largely elective second year. Upper-level students can concentrate in one or more of the school's eight academic areas, which include organizational behavior and information technology management. Students can also earn one of four certifications concurrently with their studies, such as a certificate in management of technology or international management. For students seeking a dual master's degree, Georgia Tech has a formal technology leadership program, combining a base in business skills with engineering processes, and an MBA/MS in quantitative and computational finance.
The school's technical reputation is a big draw for recruiters, and the career services department organizes job fairs and on-campus interviews. In 2003, the College of Management moved to a new facility in Midtown, a neighborhood that students say is more convenient for commuters. Social activities are scattered throughout the Atlanta area, though students can find entertainment, particularly in the university's active Greek system.
