GCSU launches MBA program in Sandersville

The Board of Regents, in its meeting on November 13, 2007, granted permission for Georgia College & State University to offer a MBA program in Sandersville, Ga.

Faye Gilbert, Dean of the J. Whitney Bunting School of Business, says, "We began the process of obtaining approval last fall (2006) with a request from the Chamber of Commerce and other community leaders. We held several information sessions to talk with community leaders and with prospective students. We had 43 people attend the first information session and then pursued defining what a program might look like and how we would deliver the courses."

Lloyd Horadan, President of Sandersville Technical College (STC), and his staff have agreed to partner with GCSU for this program. The MBA program will use STC classrooms and offer two courses per semester, or two nights per week, for a two-year time frame, counted as six semesters. The MBA consists of 12 courses that cover human resource management, marketing, finance, accounting, information systems, operations, ethics, quantitative analysis, organizational behavior, strategy, and two electives, such as project management and quality management.

This is a one-time only, cohort based program over this two-year period. “Given that GCSU is know for our applied projects and outreach to the community, I expect that the students, the faculty, and the Sandersville community will benefit from this MBA program. We have a wonderful faculty who provide an accredited, world-class education in business. It is exciting to be asked by the community to bring this program to Sandersville,” Gilbert says.
