ATHENS, Ga. -- The University of Georgia's Terry College of Business plans to offer its first online degree program next fall.
The planned bachelor of business administration in general business degree is designed for working professionals who can't attend a traditional on-campus program, according to Myra Moore, director of assessment, rankings and undergraduate programs in the business college.
The UGA University Council's curriculum committee approved the program and voted to send the proposal to the full University Council for a vote in September.
If the group approves the program as expected, the proposal goes to UGA President Jere Morehead for a vote.
The degree program is expected to target students eligible for tuition reimbursement through employers or the G.I. Bill, according to the document business school administrators recently presented to the curriculum committee.
Students who participate in UGA online degree programs pay higher tuition than on-campus students.
