‘THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH A COLLEGIAL & HIGHLY ESTEEMED FACULTY’
A trio of new Emory Goizueta professors offered their views on starting fresh at the Georgia school. Only one, Omar Rodriguez-Vila, who taught at Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business, has previous full-time MBA teaching experience.
Alison Kays, assistant professor of accounting: “The students at Goizueta are unbelievably friendly. I have been amazed at how many students have gone out of their way to make sure I feel welcome in my new job. I think this really speaks to the inviting, cohesive and team culture that makes Goizueta special.”
Rodriguez-Vila, associate professor of marketing: “What I admire about Goizueta and Emory is the growing culture of inclusion, diversity and collaboration that I have noticed, which I find unique and motivating. I believe it will become a critical component of our success as a school in the years to come.”
Justin Short, assistant professor of accounting: “What excites me most about working at Emory’s Goizueta Business School is the opportunity to work with such a collegial and highly esteemed faculty. This is my first academic appointment, and it is very exciting to know that I am launching my career at an institution that has the right people to help me guide my career on the path that I want it to go.”
