A community unlike any other.
Our home is in Technology Square, a vibrant mix of students and professionals from the high-tech business community that surrounds our campus, which is located in Midtown Atlanta. The area includes the Advanced Technology Development Center, a business incubator where students find entrepreneurial education opportunities, and the Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute, the nation's largest program for business and industry assistance and technology commercialization.
Maintaining a strong commitment to career services, Scheller boasts placement rates for both undergraduate and graduate students that are well above the national average.
In 2012, a 1952 graduate of the college, Ernest Scheller Jr. made the $50 million gift, changing the name of the school from Georgia Tech College of Management to the Scheller College of Business. Chairman emeritus of Silberline Inc., Scheller says, "I owe so much to Georgia Tech and the rigorous education I received, and I've always felt a tremendous amount of gratitude and a strong desire to give back to the Institute. I want Georgia Tech and the business school to be number one."

Meeting the Challenge
After many years as the College of Management, we are now the Ernest Scheller Jr. College of Business. But this transformation began shrouded in mystery. In the fall of 2009, an anonymous donor gave $25 million to the school ($20 million of which was a dollar-for-dollar challenge grant designed to inspire other donors).
The man behind the gift was a closely guarded secret until summer 2012, as the challenge grant edged closer to completion. Then suddenly the news broke. With an additional $25 million commitment from alumnus Ernest Scheller Jr. (for a total of $50 million), Georgia Tech College of Management not only had a new brand name but also was officially known as a college of business.
The $20 million challenge grant was completed in early 2013, tripling the College’s endowment through the creation of faculty chairs and professorships, student scholarships and fellowships, and other opportunities.
Ernest Scheller Jr. graduated from Georgia Tech in 1952 and is chairman emeritus of Silberline Manufacturing. He continues to serve as a major inspiration to alumni and friends who are dedicated to the advancement of the Scheller College of Business.

A Good Fit
One of the most important questions when considering an educational program is what you’ll get out of it.
Business education at Georgia Tech is centered on results. In every industry and every discipline, technology is becoming increasingly instrumental as organizations strive to stay on the leading edge. That's why our curriculum strongly emphasizes technology in solving the complex business problems that confront companies today.
When you take into account our comparatively low tuition and high starting salaries, a Tech degree ranks among the best for return on investment.
We strongly encourage you to spend time on campus to see if the Scheller College of Business at Georgia Tech is the best fit for you. Students who visit the campus can join tours, meet current students, and participate in admissions programs (such as Preview and Connect with Tech) in order to gain the most thorough understanding of our program and the Tech community.
