Academics and Program Logistics
When does the MBA program start?
The One-Year MBA begins in early May. The program commences with a mandatory two-week Onboarding program and team-building exercises. Domestic students should plan to arrive in the area at least one week prior to Orientation.
International students also attend a week-long, mandatory International Student Orientation, which precedes the general MBA Onboarding and provides an important foundation for all international students. This program introduces students to expectations of professors and fellow students, and provides networking opportunities with current students, alumni and faculty. International students should plan to arrive and settle in Atlanta by the end of April for the One-Year MBA.
Will I be able to work and travel during school semesters?
Do I have the option to waive out of any core classes?
Yes. We provide the option to waive out of core courses. We recommend that students with functional or academic expertise who wish to waive out of a core course take the waiver exam associated with their functional area. Waiver requests should be directed to the Program Office.
One-Year MBA students may take a waiver exam to waive out of one of the core summer courses. By waiving a core course, One-Year students may take an elective during the evenings, if offered, or a 6th course in either fall or spring semester.
