The AACSB-accredited Goizueta Business School at Emory University has been around for 100 years, making a significant impact on the production, definition, innovation, and success of the business world. Carrying the legacy of Roberto C. Goizueta, whose perseverance, hard work, drive, and forward-thinking is to blame for the incredible success of the Coca-Cola company, the business school carries itself with integrity, curiosity, ingenuity, and principled leadership. Graduates leave empowered, passionate, confident, and motivated to ethically and meaningfully lead organizations in any industry.
To build a knowledgeable business foundation, undergraduate students can pursue a Bachelors in Business Administration degree program. Interdisciplinary collaborations have created BBA concentrations in Arts Management, Environmental Management, Business Across Boundaries, Film and Media Management, and Health Innovation. BBA students can receive financial assistance through scholarships like the Bank of America Scholarship and the Ron Frank Marketing Scholarship. For graduate students, there is the accelerated One-Year Masters in Business Administration and the Two-Year MBA, both full-time. Both MBA options offer 20 areas of concentration like Alternative Investments, Customer Relationship Management, Entrepreneurship, Capital Markets, Marketing Consulting, Social Enterprise, Organizational Management, and Decision Analysis. There is also an Evening MBA, Weekend Executive MBA, Modular EMBA, Masters in Business Analytics, and a Ph.D. in Business.
Financial assistance for MBA students includes the Goetz MBA Scholarship, Robert W. Woodruff Scholars, and Graduate Assistantships. Undergraduates can obtain an incredible global perspective participating in study abroad at partner schools all over the world and international internships in places like Austria, Dublin, Santiago, Berlin, Hong Kong, Madrid, or Paris. For MBA students, there are Global Experiential Modules in China, South Africa, Brazil, and Thailand.
There is an immense amount of educational opportunity outside of the classroom. Students can engage in activities, programs, groups, and events to build leadership, develop professionally, and prepare for a career. The Leadership and Professional Development program is packed with incredible resources. It focuses on assessing and identifying strengths, self-awareness, observed assessment, simulating business scenarios, career search skills, areas of growth, best-practices, leadership research, interaction with professionals, and the Orientation Overnight Retreat to build teamwork and communication skills. The course of the program is filled with research, case competitions, mentor relationships, the Business Essentials workshop, advisors, and the Goizueta Servant Leaders.
Another way to develop leadership skills is through participation in student-led clubs, including the BBA Council, 180 Degrees Consulting, Ascend, Alternative Investments Group, Beta Alpha Psi, Consult Your Community, Data Analytics Club, Marketing Club, Real Estate Group, and Women in Finance. The Undergraduate Business School Leadership Conference, led by Goizueta students, and the Emory Entrepreneurship Summit, are excellent resources to enhance business knowledge and experience. Resources specifically for MBA students include team building at the Leader’s Reaction Course, Alumni speakers, summer networking, career development, Goizueta Advanced Leadership Academy, and Delta Air Lines Leadership Coaching Fellows. MBA students can experience learning through the IMPACT program, which involves working on real-world projects addressing business issues with companies like Coca-Cola and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
