Student Opportunities!

University of Georgia Terry College of Business - 2022 Accelerated Business Program (ABP)

The Accelerated Business Program is a highly selective, pre-collegiate program for exceptional high school rising juniors and seniors that provides an inside track on the various fields of business with a focus on the career paths of the high demand fields. This condensed format program provides participants with a broad overview of business and rare exposure to executives from widely known and respected corporations such as Travelers, Chick-fil-A and PricewaterhouseCoopers. In addition, attendees get to sample the life of a college student by staying in UGA residence halls, eating in the university’s award-winning dining halls and attending lectures given by UGA professors. It is by no means all work and no play. The evenings are filled with exciting outings, including a night tour of Athens, a campus pool party and time to socialize with fellow participants from across Georgia and surrounding states. Program is open to current sophomores, juniors and seniors entering UGA this fall.


APPLICATION DEADLINE: March 18th, 2022
