Student & Graduate Reviews

3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2006

Good school, good reputation, but doesn't cater the best to the professional world - tends to focus more on people going into academia.

Graduation Year: 2013

Georgia Tech is a model university that I believe all colleges should follow suit of. When I was searching for colleges in my teens, it was the one that grabbed me the most for an IT degree and 5 years later I do not regret my choice even slightly. It's a true sanctuary for learning but also for building valuable friendships and connections in Atlanta as well as other parts of Georgia. I've been noticed by several corporations in other states in the southeast as well as in other regions of the country. If you're looking for an institution that teaches you all the essentials and more about computer programming and development and more, Georgia Tech is the one for you.

It is a hard school to graduate from but an extremely challenging and rewarding education. It is also very highly ranked and well regarded in the engineering community.

One of the best experiences of my life. Georgia Tech was a great school in a great city (Atlanta), and I made some valuable friendships there that I still have.

Graduation Year: 2017

Georgia Institute of Technology is located right in the middle of Midtown-Atlanta, GA surrounded by opportunity. On every corner there are new "innovation" centers being built helping to develop new tools, technology and their students. I am currently attending the Executive MBA program (Global Business Focus) with hopes to graduate 12/2017. This program is typically 3 weekends of in-person classes a month (Friday 530PM-930PM and Saturday 830AM-530PM), 2 Immersion weeks, and 2 class trips (e.g., China & Panama this year). To-date the program has been very challenging while working full-time, but it has been manageable when I prioritize my obligations. The students in my class are a mix of BRIGHT full-time professionals who are seeking to learn to become an executive, further develop their skill set, and or both. The accelerated Global Business EMBA curriculum is designed to be to give you a foundation skill-set and (e.g., Accounting, Econ, etc.) in the first semester and with each passing semester include more theory, strategy and ultimately the cap-stone project (consulting strategy). Their are also optional classes available to the students during the week that I have been taking full advantage of the opportunities. Overall, if you are looking for an EMBA in the Atlanta market, which is a buyers market, Georgia Tech is tough to beat!
