The Scheller MBA: What You Need To Know

Every business school talks about technology, but few embrace it quite so fully as Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business, established in 1913. The school is located in the middle of Atlanta’s Tech Square district, – 1.4 million square feet of space that’s home to 100 startups, 50 accelerators and incubators, and the R&D wings of companies like AT&T, Chick-fil-A, Delta Air Lines, and The Home Depot.

Not content with this, Georgia Tech has begun the process of building a new two-tower complex in Tech Square that will add another 400,000 square feet for use by Scheller students, faculty, and staff. The first new building is expected to open in 2022.

Scheller’s program has its fair share of tech-focused courses, especially when it comes to electives. MBAs can choose from eight immersive tracks that consist of four related electives, including Business Analytics, Innovating for Sustainability, Leading New Ventures, and Supply Chain Innovation. Tracks supplement academic work with projects with businesses, talks and panels featuring guest speakers, and networking events.

A number of students are also selected for the TI:GER Technology Innovation track, a 16-month project that brings together Scheller MBAs, Georgia Tech PhDs, and Emory JDs to work toward taking business ideas to market. Given Georgia Tech’s specializations in engineering, analytics, computing, cybersecurity, and biomedical research, spots are in hot demand.

Students can cluster electives in concentrations that consist of three electives centered on a particular area. Some are functional, such as Accounting, Finance, or Marketing, and others are interdisciplinary, such as Cross-Cultural Human Resources Management, Entrepreneurship, International Business, Quantitative Finance, and Strategic Sustainability. Ultimately, students take a total of 11 electives, giving the intellectually curious plenty of space to explore.

Scheller’s experiential learning comes largely in the form of “practicums” — semester-long consulting projects involving real-life problems. Students work alongside businesses gaining insight and great networking opportunities. Practicum topics range from IT and operations to strategic management, pro bono consulting, and more.

Of course, all of this is aimed at channeling MBAs into great jobs. Scheller is renowned for its top-notch careers service. In fact, the Financial Times has ranked the Jones MBA Career Center No. 2 in the world for quality of MBA career services. As soon as students begin the program, they are assigned a career coach. These advisors also work closely with companies, so they understand the skills that are in demand and find the employers that are the right fit for students. Given Atlanta is also home to 16 Fortune 500 companies, these connections can be handy. Three months after graduation, 90.4% of the Class of 2020 had a job with an average base salary of $121,045.

But Scheller isn’t just all work and no play. Atlanta is a thriving international city awash with restaurants, bars, museums, acres of green space, and endless entertainment. It’s also home to award-winning restaurants, world-class museums, acres of green space, and endless entertainment. At Scheller, you have the best of both worlds.

​​“I believe in technology and innovation, and I learned from professional experience that business acumen is a key ingredient to connect dots between engineering and the customer/market,” says MBA’22 Youngtak Lee. “The Georgia Tech Scheller MBA program offers a unique experience for their students with a small cohort size, world-class professors, a wide spectrum of programming, and most importantly, the best career service coaches.

“I knew it would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity if I enrolled and I was very elated that I received an offer to join such a prestigious program.”

Scheller MBA Student Voices

“Scheller is at the forefront of solving business problems by leveraging technology. I loved that I could combine my interest in learning business principles with my engineering background and technical expertise in a city as vibrant as Atlanta. Because I was the leader of the Black Employee Networking Group for New England at Jacobs Engineering, I was excited to pursue two areas of interest at Scheller: strategy and innovation and cross-cultural human resources management.”- Francesca Sally (MBA ’22)

“The quality that best describes my MBA classmates is that they are ready to be wrong. I don’t think anyone in my class is scared to share an opinion or offer a counter one. While they are all comfortable sharing, they are equally open to hearing the other side and changing their initial conception. We all chose to come to a place that values the collective knowledge of the class. We understand that we don’t have all the answers, but we certainly find them together.”- Anthony J. Hodge (MBA ’22)

“The Jones MBA Career Center at Scheller was a key part of my decision when choosing Scheller. It was important to me that I would have guidance and support on my career journey and that I would be able to leave this program with my dream job.”- Suzy Livingston (MBA ’22)

“Every Scheller student is sharp and driven, but it’s the diversity of my class that has spurred some fascinating in-lecture discussions. Scheller has done a great job leveraging this diversity in building strong core teams. My team is an even mix of men and women representing four undergraduate majors, three states, two countries, one previous master’s degree, and 26 years of combined business experience. We were really successful together because our unique strengths balanced so well.”- Scott Spencer (MBA ’22)
