Over a couple of hours, President G.P. “Bud” Peterson and others described how Georgia Tech is making college more accessible while also helping more students succeed. 

Officials reviewed Georgia Tech’s three online master’s degrees-at-scale, which allow students to earn degrees exclusively through the "massive online" format and for a fraction of the standard cost.
