New Graduate Programs

We are pleased to inform prospective students that a Master of Business in Professional Leadership (MBPL) has been approved by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. The Master of Business in Professional Leadership (MBPL) is a business and interdisciplinary studies degree designed for people who wish to advance as leaders and excel across multiple commercial, government, and non-profit enterprises by inspiring and motivating individuals and organizations. Unlike a traditional business quantitative-centric degree, which is focused on managing processes, policies, and resources, the MBPL is a business degree focused on qualitative leadership. The new master’s program is housed in the School of Business. For more information, please see here. Prospective students may also contact Dr. Bill Carty, MBPL Program Coordinator, at or at 478.471.2724, or contact Mr. Drew McIntosh, Coordinator of Graduate Admissions, at .

We are also pleased to announce the launch of a Graduate Certificate in Strategic Business Communication in the School of Arts and Letters. The 15-hour stackable credential is aligned with the MA in Public Relations. For more information about this Graduate Certificate, please contact the Graduate Program Coordinator, Dr. Andre Nicholson at .
