Before becoming senior director of strategic accounts for the Oracle Corporation, Dr. Antoine Chaya earned his master of business administration from the Georgia Institute of Technology before going on to earn his PhD from the same institution. Now based in San Francisco, Antoine Chaya graduated from his MBA program with a concentration in management.

The Georgia Institute of Technology MBA program requires students to take three electives, or nine credit hours, to earn a concentration in a specific area. Students can spread their electives out more broadly if they wish, but they may accumulate up to three concentrations over the course of their 33 hours of electives. Concentrations are split into two broad categories: functional and interdisciplinary.

Functional concentrations focus on aspects of business that apply to almost any organization. Topics including business law, marketing, and strategic management are common functional concentrations. Interdisciplinary concentrations, meanwhile, bring in knowledge from cultural studies or more specific fields, such as real estate. Georgia Tech offers interdisciplinary concentrations in such areas as international business and strategic sustainability.
