Georgia's strong and diversified economy stems from its key industries: agribusiness, tourism, manufacturing, communications, real estate, industry, and government. Georgia is the biggest producer of pecans in the world, and its state peach production is one of largest in the country. Georgia's favorable climate and long growing season allows for better crop yields and distribution. Georgia also has a strong military presence, with dozens of military bases around the state. Atlanta, the state capital and most populous city, has one of the largest media markets in the U.S. and is home to 48 television broadcast stations, including CNN, TBS, TNT, TCM, and Cartoon Network. The federal government, in particular the U.S. military, and the University of Georgia are some of the top employers in the state.

Many of Georgia's well-known public universities offer online programs or courses in addition to their on-campus offerings. Georgia State University, University of Georgia, and Georgia Tech all offer some form of online courses, degree programs, or professional education. Georgians and out-of-state students who want to pursue distance learning at these and several other colleges and universities in the University System of Georgia can use the website Georgia ONmyLINE (GOML) to find online degrees offered within the state.

One of the best and possibly only ways to get your foot in the door in the state's largest industries is to earn a college degree from an accredited institution. Although educational requirements vary by industry and employer, most companies nowadays require a minimum of a bachelor's degree for employment. A college degree alone cannot guarantee you a job, but it can give you a competitive edge in the job market. Georgia's online colleges can help you achieve your educational and professional goals, whether it be professional certification, master's degree, or continued education courses.

Georgia's online colleges and universities are an excellent alternative to brick-and-mortar institutions. Argosy University, Ashworth College, DeVry University, ITT Technical Institute, and University of Phoenix are some of the bigger online schools with a presence in Georgia. There are also several online colleges in Georgia that offer a variety of distance education courses and degree programs in smaller, student-centered environments. Herzing University, for example, offers; associate, bachelor's, and master's degrees in more than 45 different degree programs, but it is unique in that classes are kept small to ensure individualized attention.
