Students seeking an online MBA in Georgia have several options. The Georgia WebMBA program, a consortium of six AACSB-accredited member public universities, offers students the opportunity to earn an online MBA. The WebMBA program was approved as a pilot with five universities in 2000 and gained full approval in 2002. The program was announced as a result of a university system-wide technology study that found the need for increased access to higher education opportunities, and as a way to provide an online MBA from Georgia’s public schools—an opportunity that did not previously exist.

The goals of the University System of Georgia, which oversees all of the state’s public colleges, include equipping each institution with educational technology and distance learning capabilities, and enhancing collaboration between system institutions, and in providing the public online MBA programs in Georgia, the consortium meets both of those goals.

While each of the schools in the consortium has its own admissions standards and process, and each grants separate degrees, students benefit from the flexibility and overall lower price offered through the consortium. The cost is the same for in-state and out-of-state students, though admissions preference is given to Georgia residents. All of the consortium’s member schools were ranked in the top 150 for online graduate business programs by U.S. News & World Report in terms of faculty credentials and training, student services and technology, student engagement, and admissions selectivity; half of the schools placed in the top 50.

Time to complete the MBA programs in Georgia varies from 12 to 19 months for students who attend full-time, and the cost varies just less than $14,000 to just less than $26,000—even the state’s most expensive program is much less expensive than many others.
