It is comprised of four programmatic divisions: Business Expansion Support Services, Economic Development Services, Minority Business Development, and the Small Business Development Center.

The mission of The University of Georgia Business Outreach Services/ Small Business Development Center is to enhance the economic well-being of Georgia citizens. Their objectives are:

• To support entrepreneurship and business expansion through the offering of direct business consulting and educational opportunities that address the human resources, management, technology, capital formation, and infrastructure needs of the business community.

• To address regional economic development needs for information by providing applied economic development research to communities and regions. This service includes the application of geographic information system technology and offers a wide range of resources for secondary research and an extensive primary research effort.

• To assist existing businesses in taking advantage of state and local incentives for job creation, employee training, and other expansion efforts.

In addition to offering public classes, they provide tailored, in-house training for all types and sizes of businesses and trade associations, on a variety of management-related subjects. Their professional business consultants offer confidential services at no charge to companies seeking operational and strategic planning advice.
