At the Coles College of Business, we prepare world-class graduates to lead in today's challenging business environment. We are committed to preparing students to contribute to society as visionary and ethical leaders, globally-connected and engaged in their local communities. Working with business and industry, we develop innovative academic programs that teach students how to solve critical challenges. These students, in turn, provide Georgia's companies with a distinct competitive advantage. One example is the Hughes Leadership and Career Program. Designed by a team of faculty using feedback directly from area businesses, this program is part of the business curriculum for all undergraduate business students. As part of the program, students partner with a career coach to perfect their professional skills. In the graduate arena, our Executive MBA is a Tier One program in North America as ranked in CEO Magazine and our research-intensive DBA program prepares experienced business professionals for tenure-track positions at AACSB-accredited business schools in a unique format.
