UGA - Terry Adds MBA Concentrations in Healthcare and Human Resources

Other tweaks to the program include a new Consulting emphasis area and a redesigned leadership program

The University of Georgia's Terry College of Business has announced some changes to its full-time MBA program. The changes include new concentrations, as well as a new area of emphasis and a redesigned leadership component

The new concentrations include Healthcare and Human Resources Management. The new Healthcare concentration aims to prepare students to enter this growing field, and includes curriculum from both the Terry College of Business and the university's College of Public Health. Required curriculum covers topics in Health Economics, Health Policy and Management, and Data Management; elective options touch on a range of subjects, from Mergers & Acquisitions to Management of Public Health Organizations.

The new Human Resources concentration leverages insights from the university's Department of Psychology and College of Education. The MBA concentration builds a strong quantitative approach to human resources management, with courses like Data Management, the Economics of Managing Organizations, and Fundamentals of Risk Management. Elective courses touch on Multicultural Issues in Adult Education, Service Operations, and more. 

As part of the MBA program, Terry will now also offer students the option of pursuing a new "Consulting" area of emphasis, which can complement any concentration. The new Consulting emphasis area combines case work with practical, hands-on activities.

And finally, UGA - Terry has redesigned its MBA Leadership Fellows program. It will now include topics in crisis management and service learning.
