Business school may be a few years away, but you can get started now.
High School Students

Summer Residency Programs
Sample life as a business student by participating in a week-long residency program during the summer. 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.
Intended Business Students
You have to wait until you’ve met the application requirements to apply to a Terry major, but we encourage students to start preparing to apply as soon as possible. Here are some ways you can get involved with Terry before you apply:
Attend Terry events
Start networking with upperclassmen, faculty and alumni. As an intended business major you should receive the "This Week at Terry" newsletter with a listing of upcoming events and programs. Contact Undergraduate Student Services if you are an intended business major and are not receiving "This Week at Terry."
Check out the UGA Career Center
From résumé writing to career fairs to etiquette, the UGA Career Center is a valuable resource that you will rely on during your time at Terry and after graduation.
Get a PeerLink mentor
Terry PeerLink is a mentor program that connects intended business students with involved Terry upperclassmen. Our goal is to provide guidance, leadership skills, and an easier transition into the Terry College of Business. Apply via TerryConnect and email email@example.com with any questions.
Join a student organization
Connect with other business students and gain leadership experience outside the classroom. A good time to get plugged in with a student group is at the Terry Major Orientation.
This is what our Terry Ambassadors suggest doing during your first years at UGA to prepare for entering a Terry major.
Year 1 (Freshman)
- Take an assessment at UGA Career Center
- Attend Terry student events
- Connect with upperclassmen who are following the path you want to follow
- Interact with professors to build your confidence in working professionally with adults
- Join an organization that you find interesting
- Find a mentor in an older student, faculty/staff member, or alumni
- Develop your résumé
Year 2 (Sophomore)
- Apply to a Terry major
- Interact at events - it's better than just attending
- Attend career fairs, even if you are not actively seeking a job; the practice will benefit you in the years to come
- Introduce yourself to professors in your respective major and grow those relationships
- Take notes during UGA Career Center events that discuss business etiquette, résumés, good first impressions, etc.
