10. Can you describe the archetypal student for your school?

Recruiters value UGA M.B.A. students for their "roll-up-the-sleeves" attitudes. You'll find no M.B.A. entitlement here. Terry M.B.A. students are practical, with a solid understanding of the core business functions and how they interrelate, and eager to take on a challenge, without letting status or rank get in the way. Our students and graduates are excellent colleagues and team players who are able to begin contributing the first day on the job because they jump in immediately to do the work that needs doing.
