About Us

The J. Whitney Bunting College of Business is exactly what you would expect from a premier public liberal arts university - a first-rate, student-centered, residential business education with a full array of AACSB-accredited academic programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level, for high-demand careers. Our program offerings are nationally recognized, affordable, and accessible. At the graduate level, we offer online programs in Management Information Systems, the Georgia WebMBA® at Georgia College, and the Master of Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Our Master of Accountancy is currently delivered face-to-face as an ideal program for Georgia College students seeking to continue their education in the accounting field. Our goal is to develop capable, successful business professionals who are also responsible citizens committed to contributing to the community.

Georgia College, located in Milledgeville, Georgia, is the state's designated public liberal arts university-where practical education meets life-altering, real-world experiences. For us, a liberal arts education goes beyond simply memorizing facts and philosophies. A liberal arts curriculum teaches students how to navigate the complexities of life, assess the world around them and become critical thinkers. Our skills-infused approach provides our students with an advantage that employers are looking for and expands the personal and professional lives of our graduates.

The university offers undergraduate and graduate education and serves more than 7,000 students in five colleges: College of Arts and Sciences, the J. Whitney Bunting College of Business, the John H. Lounsbury College of Education, the College of Health Science and the John E. Sallstrom Honors College. With its sprawling idyllic campus paired with talented faculty and staff, Georgia College stands at the forefront of offering a holistic liberal arts education. Our students are engaged citizens who are encouraged to think independently and lead creatively as they acquire the skills to navigate life-long challenges.

Georgia College is one of 26 institutions in the University System of Georgia, and we consistently rank among the top three universities in terms of student retention and graduation rates. Georgia College also ranks 20th on U.S. News & World Report's Best Regional Universities - South and is recognized as a top university in the nation by the Princeton Review, Forbes Higher Education and Kiplinger's.

Location

Milledgeville is a charming, traditional small town located less than a two-hour drive from Atlanta, and an easy drive from all the other great cities in the Peach State - Augusta, Athens, Macon, Columbus, and Savannah. Close enough to everything, but far away enough to avoid the hustle and bustle.
