I think the opinion of current students would matter more.. she graduated years ago and everything has changed a lot since then.. i myself have spoken to couple of current students to get a true picture..i spoke to two 2nd year students.. they all spoke very well of Terry (including 100% of class got internships and over 50% of class is already placed)

My sis and her friends have a great opinion of Terry and UGA.. i have probably grown up listening to UGA and bulldawgs stories..

Athens, honestly, isnt a very big city but the downtown is across the road from north campus.. the atmosphere is very lively..there are loads of eating joints and pubs.. there is a lot of music and arts scene in Athens.. the campus is great.. the stanford stadium is spectacular and scene on a game day is amazing (you should google for some game day images) .. I'm a bit partial towards Atlanta and surrounding areas since I have lived there for sometime and I think I love absolutely everything about them except the transportation.. make sure you stay on the UGA bus line or walking distance to the campus..

The weather is almost like that of Delhi.. It does get pretty hot and cold.. it doesnt snow every year.. but the weather around the year is very pleasant mostly.. the fall and spring is beautiful!

It would have been perfect if Terry had posted the min and max salaries along with mean and median.. somehow i dont feel that 85k is a true representation of what most of the class is able to score.. if any of you can get that info from the current students.. please post that... I saw that they have made a group for current students on fbook.. has any of you joined that yet? How many students so far in that group? and how many international students?

Hope the above info helps.

First year here.....

Internship Opportunities- The Career Management Center (CMC) puts together numerous networking events in Athens and Atlanta that allow you to meet people/alumni in your desired field. Not only are Terry MBA Alumni extremely welcoming and like to hire current MBA students, but UGA as a whole has 250,000+ alumni and a simple “Go Dawgs” in your conversation can help get your foot in the door with most alumni because of how loyal they are to the university. Because of the smaller class size, you’re on a first name basis with the CMC staff and they dedicate their time to helping you land the type of internship you want. After the initial process of getting your resume and pitch in order, if you need to meet with them on a regular/weekly basis because you feel you need the extra help, they are there for you. Want to do an informational interview with someone in _____(pick your area of interest)? They can rattle off names of alumni for you to contact who won’t be inundated with dozens and dozens (or 100s) of requests from a huge class of students.

Teaching Environment- There is a good mix of lecture, case study, and experiential learning. Depending on the specific class, some have more lecture or more case study. Small class size allows for a more intimate learning environment where professors know the students’ names. Class size also allows for frequent discussion and (literally) everyone can get their point of view in, so even though there isn’t much cold-calling you’d better be prepared to take a position and be able to defend it. One big plus for the incoming class is getting to spend two years in the new business school building (it is located close to the current building, on the north side of the campus). It will be brand new next year and based on the floorplans/blueprints I’ve seen of it it looks amazing.

Job Placement- Being a first year and only having recently ceased my internship search (yay!), I'm not as familiar to full time offers/placement as I could be (for both domestic and international students), so I don’t want to comment on this other than saying contacting 2nd years and/or admissions office would be the best route for more information on this.

Weather- Outside of Florida and southern California, I don’t think you’re going to get much better weather than Athens. Ebookworm compared it to that of Delhi; I cannot comment on that, but I’ll say that the temperature (everything in F) ranges from extremes of mid/low 20s F in winter to mid/high 90s in summer. Right now, in the “dead of winter” it is 40s to high 60s during the day, whereas much of the rest of the country is way colder than that, and snowy. It might snow here a couple days per year, but only like an inch and it usually doesn’t stick on the ground (melts). Spring and fall are beautiful, and north campus (where Terry is) is gorgeous. Summers are hot and humid, but you won’t be here during June/July, so you’ll only experience summer during August/beginning of September so it isn’t a big deal even if you’re not used to hot/humid.

Athens- Yes, it is a smaller city not and definitely not Atlanta, but that is part of the reason why Athens is so great. The culture, feel, and experience of downtown and surrounding areas of Athens is almost unrivaled and is ranked annually as one of the best college towns in America. The music, sports, restaurants, and bars are first rate. If you’re concerned about not being in a huge city with job or networking opportunities, Atlanta is a short drive away. The atmosphere in Atlanta around Emory and Ga Tech don’t come close to Athens.

Sherwin7 Thanks for the detailed post.. can you please tell a bit about the max salaries of the last year grads and if you have any idea of the max salaries of the current second year students? What is the rough average of salary offers made lately? Thanks!

If you are concerned about max salaries, I have to assume that you want to work in private equity, which is the current market leader in MBA compensation. I am not concentrating in finance, so I would not be a good barometer for speaking about the max salaries in that field.

I am not sure if Admissions publishes max data, but if you have been admitted and you want to hear it first-hand, call/email Admissions and ask; you have been admitted – meaning they want you – they are not going to take away your admittance offer or any scholarships you may have received if you ask. The worst they will say is no. If you have not been admitted and are looking at max data to narrow down who to apply to, I will say unequivocally that you should apply to UGA.

When I was in your position, I wanted to assign a metric to everything and create this magical formula where after I had quantified everything it would tell me which school to attend. And then I realized my fit with a program/school and other intangibles are way more important to consider than tangible data for schools that are more-or-less ranked similarly. Don't get me wrong, I did run ROI calculations for the various schools, and because of how affordable UGA is (and having little to zero debt upon graduation) compared to any other school in the US, the ROI for me was fantastic.

Personally, I think it is myopic to look at max salaries. As I was comparing schools, I found it much more useful to look at median/mean data (especially at a school UGA’s size) for the specific function/industry I was interested in – knowing that a couple years ago a Sloan graduate pulled $1.8M for a real estate job helps me zero. I’m not in real estate, and I know I don’t have that kind of worth, yet. It would be more applicable to look at my field of interest, say marketing, to see what those graduates earned. Additionally, another reason I did not put much weight into max salaries is because of the cost of living in different areas. UGA graduates do get jobs nationwide, but largely they want to stay in the southeast (Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Jacksonville, etc.) where the cost of living is much, much less than where many other schools are located and where graduates end up working, like in the northeast, DC, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, or Seattle. Cost of living alone can significantly impact the max salary (in addition to the median/mean salaries). If you have not already looked, check out http://www.terry.uga.edu/recruiters/mba/employment to see the industry specific data.

Thank you! I get your point, i really do. However, what sometimes concerns me is that while GA Tech has an average of 105k, Terry has 85k. Given that both are located in GA and not far from each other, it makes me wonder why. I also do understand that the average or mean/median does not represent the entire class and I am really inclined towards joining Terry given my connection with UGA and Athens, personally and i'm almost sure that I will. However, these are few figures I cant find an explanation to. I spoke to some current students and from what they told me, the max goes to 120k and average is 90-100k. Again, that makes me wonder why the average for the entire class is 85k? Additionally, my sis graduated 8 years ago from Terry. She was placed in a pretty good role with a salary of 120k and most of her international friends were too roughly around the same figure. I can't find an explanation for the post MBA salary being almost the same after 8 long years. And I am not talking about Terry only when i say that. I know that most schools also boast of highest salary being 120k and some talk about even more. But on the whole, I do not know what measure to judge the schools on then. I hope I did not complicate it too much for you to understand. Thanks again!

Without spending too much time on this (i.e. don’t quote me on this) and looking up specific industry salaries at other schools, I would say it could be attributable to the different industries/functions the students go into at the different schools. You sound like you’re familiar with UGA, so you may know that at the undergraduate level, UGA’s Real Estate program is ranked in the top 5 nationally. By extension and based on that sterling reputation, UGA offers an MBA concentration in Real Estate. Last year close to one-fifth of the class pursued jobs in that industry, which as you may have noticed, pays considerably less than other industries. I think GT has some offerings in Real Estate, but is not focused on or catered to as much as it is at UGA. As a percentage, GT has roughly double the portion of the class entering the finance industry (which generally pays at the top of the scale), whereas UGA has roughly double the portion going into consumer products. If you look at it not from the macro level, but at the micro level and dive deeper into what industry/function you wish to pursue I think you will be able to easily figure out whatever discrepancy you are finding.

In addition to the above, I want to touch on two other factors too. 1- Each year there are at least several UGA grads that concentrate in Entrepreneurship and go on to positions/companies in that realm rather than into “traditional” MBA jobs with higher paying salaries. I’m not familiar with how it is at other schools (and at GT specifically, since you mention it), but having even just a few grads go into that realm can disproportionally affect our salary figures because of how small the class size is (approx. 15 less than GT). 2- UGA and GT have roughly the same number of grads that go into the tech space, but anecdotally I would think GT has more folks with computer science/engineering backgrounds than UGA does. For those that go into the tech space it makes sense that it is more beneficial (financially) to have that background, so GT grads in tech would have greater financial reward (which again, could explain some of whatever discrepancy you are finding).

Thank you! I get your point, i really do. However, what sometimes concerns me is that while GA Tech has an average of 105k, Terry has 85k. Given that both are located in GA and not far from each other, it makes me wonder why. I also do understand that the average or mean/median does not represent the entire class and I am really inclined towards joining Terry given my connection with UGA and Athens, personally and i'm almost sure that I will. However, these are few figures I cant find an explanation to. I spoke to some current students and from what they told me, the max goes to 120k and average is 90-100k. Again, that makes me wonder why the average for the entire class is 85k? Additionally, my sis graduated 8 years ago from Terry. She was placed in a pretty good role with a salary of 120k and most of her international friends were too roughly around the same figure. I can't find an explanation for the post MBA salary being almost the same after 8 long years. And I am not talking about Terry only when i say that. I know that most schools also boast of highest salary being 120k and some talk about even more. But on the whole, I do not know what measure to judge the schools on then. I hope I did not complicate it too much for you to understand. Thanks again!


Without spending too much time on this (i.e. don’t quote me on this) and looking up specific industry salaries at other schools, I would say it could be attributable to the different industries/functions the students go into at the different schools. You sound like you’re familiar with UGA, so you may know that at the undergraduate level, UGA’s Real Estate program is ranked in the top 5 nationally. By extension and based on that sterling reputation, UGA offers an MBA concentration in Real Estate. Last year close to one-fifth of the class pursued jobs in that industry, which as you may have noticed, pays considerably less than other industries. I think GT has some offerings in Real Estate, but is not focused on or catered to as much as it is at UGA. As a percentage, GT has roughly double the portion of the class entering the finance industry (which generally pays at the top of the scale), whereas UGA has roughly double the portion going into consumer products.

Great points again Sherwin7. I totally agree with the part about industry specific salaries. For example, Fisher has an average salary of 95k but the average for consulting is around 120k and Operations is 85k. ebookworm, you could try reaching out to Terry adcom to see if they could give you the industry wise averages.

The industry wise averages are up on the employment stats webpage. They more or less revolve around 85k. Anyway!

Hello All,

I had applied to Terry MBA and was interviewed on the 18th of Feb. I havent received an admit yet. However, I received an email from UGA housing to register for on campus housing.
Below is the email I received. Did everyone receive this? Does this to any slightest extent indicate that I might receive an admit?? Just curious :|

I'm afraid that is no indication. That is sent to all students who apply. Its been only a week since you applied. Too early to expect something.
