Georgia Tech employs around 7,000 Georgians, with $558 million in salaries circulating through the economy every year. But this doesn’t begin to quantify our total economic value to the state.
Georgia Tech was once considered a “state” school. Then, as we grew, so did our reputation as a “regional” school. These days Georgia Tech is nationally ranked in a wide range of disciplines, keeping company with the top technology-focused schools in the country — and as our reputation goes, so goes our economic impact.
Georgia Tech is spreading the wealth all over the planet: Almost 50 percent of our students travel overseas before they graduate, we have international students from 127 countries, and we have education, research and corporate partnership platforms in Europe, Asia, and Central America.
