The Emory Goizueta MBA: What You Need To Know

Since 1954, Emory’s Goizueta Business School has offered an MBA with a mission rooted in creating ethical leaders. “There is a large emphasis on developing leaders who operate at the intersection of business and society,” says associate dean Brian Mitchell, who also happens to be an alumnus of the school. “I think that’s the future of business schools. I think we have to actually create leaders and structures that address societal issues. Business schools have a special opportunity and obligation to society to fix things.”

Among the smallest of the top MBA programs, Goizueta admits around 160 students per incoming class. The small class size allows them to offer personalized interaction. 

Applications are viewed holistically, and the GMAT is the most typical entrance exam. Every applicant is interviewed to assure students values match the program’s values.

‘A RIGHT WAY TO PREPARE LEADERS IN BUSINESS’

During the 2008-2009 financial crisis, Goizueta faculty came together to redesign how the curriculum was sequenced and delivered. The core of the program is frontloaded in the first semester, with core courses such as Marketing, Finance, and Strategy. This sequencing gives students the basic building blocks early on so that they can apply those functional core classes in their electives the succeeding three semesters. 

Students can choose from about 30 concentrations, and as of this year they can choose to pursue the STEM Designated Business Analytics MBA track, a higher hurdle than a typical concentration. 

There are 69 total credits required, and Goizueta requires all students to complete a summer internship. Other opportunities include fellowships with faculty and a number of case competitions, most notably a healthcare case competition and the brand-new John Lewis Case Competition on racial justice.

The program is proud to say that statistics for job offers at three months post graduation are very high — consistently at or above 90%, which Mitchell attributes in part to the sequence of the curriculum. 

“There is a right way to prepare leaders in business, and our focus on principled leadership and the intersection of business and society is not just altruistic, I think that really is the future of business, and I think that’s an area where we are leading the way,” he says.
