Goizueta’s MBA classes put students to test, teach variety of skills

One of the most important skills an MBA can possess is the ability to dive into a new business situation and come out quickly with recommendations backed by great thinking. It’s one of the reasons companies love hiring MBAs, so learning to dive in effectively on a new project with a new team must be a priority for many students. Goizueta excels at preparing you by helping you structure your thinking, collaborate with teammates and produce quality results that would move the needle in the real world. First, the Goizueta MBA doesn’t just teach technical skills like finance and...

Peers make career building process easier, rewarding

  It’s the fall semester, and that can only mean one thing at Goizueta: RECRUITING! Whether second-years or one-years recruiting for full-time roles, or first-years preparing for diversity conferences and career treks, a big chunk of the student population is prepping for the next steps in their careers. This could include refining their resumes, preparing their elevator pitches, working on Situation, Task, Action, Result (STAR) stories or making constant visits to the Career Management Center. Goizueta does a great job providing any and all resources students might need to be successful in the job hunt. I can remember the grueling...

Atlanta’s Music Midtown offers great escape for MBA students

Sunshine, tunes, friends and cold beer — pretty much everything an Atlanta graduate student needs to check the box for a Saturday (and maybe even Sunday) well spent! I knew, of course, that Music Midtown would live up to its reputation for great bands and a laid-back vibe, but this might have been the best production I have seen to-date. There is something about the Atlanta community during these massive events that lights up the whole city. Everyone, both festival goers and non-goers celebrate and enjoy, one way or another. Now, I realize there is controversy regarding the park...

Life on the Graduate Business Association

Happy September, everyone! It’s hard to believe the summer is over already, but I’m absolutely thrilled to be back at Goizueta starting my second year in the full-time MBA program. The first few weeks of school have revolved around classes, the start of the recruiting season, and GBS clubs and student activities. I’m heavily involved with one club in particular: the Graduate Business Association. The Graduate Business Association is a group of elected student leaders whose goal is to improve all aspects of student life at Goizueta, whether through academic, professional or social initiatives. I’ve never been involved with...

Local Atlanta spots a must-see for any MBA student

For visitors who have traveled through Atlanta, often a few big names (and coincidentally, destinations for many Goizueta MBA grads) come to mind: companies like Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines (Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is Delta’s home base), fun places like the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the Georgia Aquarium, and historically important landmarks like the Sweet Auburn district, home to Martin Luther King Jr.’s boyhood home and a significant center during the American Civil Rights Movement. These destinations are all very rich in their own regard but only scratch the surface of what Atlanta offers. As an official Georgia resident now,...

Keystone Experience: A day in the life

It is hard to believe how quickly the past year has gone by as today I rejoined my fellow members of the Class of 2018 in the same auditorium where we began our journey a year ago as new MBA students. We reunited for the first time since beginning our summers working at internships for top companies around the globe. I was excited to kick off the year with Keystone, a milestone day of personal development and community service for students at Goizueta Business School. We spent the morning with a Town Hall session led by Associate Dean Brian...
