ATLANTA: The Go-To Place for Global Brands

Atlanta is a thriving metropolis, an economic powerhouse, and the cultural hub of the South, offering Oglethorpe students access to a network that spans the world.

Atlanta is home to:

  • The third largest selection of Fortune 500 companies in the nation. We’re talking Delta Airlines, UPS, Home Depot, CNN, Newell-Rubbermaid and that American classic, Coca-Cola.
  • Internationally recognized research organizations. For example, the CDC: global headline-grabber for its role in the fights against Ebola and HIV.
  • Major service and nonprofit organizations, like the American Cancer Society, The Carter Center, Habitat for Humanity, and the International Rescue Committee.
  • An intercontinental crossroads. Atlanta is home to 67 consulates, and Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is the busiest in the world, connecting people from all over the globe.
