ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT

GSU is a leading urban research university located in the heart of Atlanta. It is the largest university in Georgia with more than 50,000 students enrolled continues to lead the state and nation in graduating economically and racially diverse students on-time and at a reasonable cost. GSU confers more bachelor’s degrees to African Americans than any other non-profit college or university in the United States. Georgia State has eliminated achievement gaps based on race, ethnicity or income. For the last four years, GSU has been the only national university at which Black, Hispanic, first-generation and low-income students graduated at rates at or above the rate of the student body overall. As a result of these efforts, in May 2018, The New York Times ran a feature article on Georgia State, calling the institution “an engine of social mobility.” U.S. News & World Report ranks Georgia State as the 3rd Most Innovative University in the Country.

With more than 8,000 students and 170 faculty members, RCB is one of the largest and most diverse business schools in the country. According to Standard & Poor’s, more Georgia executives hold graduate degrees from Robinson and Georgia State than from any other school in the nation. Its flagship part-time MBA is ranked among the best by Bloomberg Businessweek and U.S. News & World Report, and its Executive MBA is considered by Financial Times to be one of the world’s premier programs. Using its current strategic plan, Advancing Vision 2020, as a guide, Robinson is extending its perspectives and competencies into new areas – computer science, statistics, engineering, science and technology – and integrating them into the core activities of the business school. Students now connect these analytical skills with business concepts in newly developed immersive experiences that allow them to adapt to and innovate in rapidly changing environments. These strategic investments and initiatives have advanced the college towards its vision of faculty and students creatively designing implementable strategies that address real-world challenges and transform industry partners that impact industry, Atlanta and the world in positive ways.
