ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: KEIYLENE STRICKLAND – Beyond the Classroom

I always knew I would pursue an MBA. I vividly remember sitting at my undergraduate graduation looking forward to the day I would return to business school. My motivation evolved over the years but one theme held constant; I knew I was not done learning. Fast forward four years, as I walked into one of the first sessions of the summer onboarding for the one-year program (I later deemed that my motivation included learning as quickly as possible!). Professor Steve Walton was tasked with the challenge of easing 62 students into the world of case studies beginning with “Operations...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: SCOTT KAGAN – Let the Games Begin!

It’s hard to believe that just over one month ago I was working from my home in Washington, DC and am now living in Atlanta studying for midterms!  Before I arrived at Goizueta I had the opportunity to speak with some current students and alumni about the One Year Experience.  Like many reading this, the question on the front of mind was “what’s the summer like?  Sounds kind of crazy.”  Resoundingly, I received some derivation of the same answer; “the summer is crazy intense… lots of hard work, and slightly overwhelming… but man it’s pretty awesome.”  I found this...

One-Year at Goizueta: Alanna Holman – There’s No Reason to Stop

So, Alanna, you agreed to a one-year accelerated MBA? Yes, I did! And you are completing an entire year of core classes into one summer semester? Yes, I’ll get through it! Then my mind wandered…Wait, am I sure about this? The word “accelerated” is not taken lightly here at Goizueta. On the first day of onboarding, we sat down in our seats and were reminded of how quickly the year passes. A few PowerPoint clicks later, and we were already discussing graduation day! And what do we have to accomplish in that short time? Not only should we learn...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: BRETT PATTERSON – Enota Team Building Experience

“Welcome to Goizueta – meet your 61 new best friends!” accurately describes the whirlwind that was the first week of Onboarding for the 2016 One-Year MBA Class. The two week Onboarding experience was divided into a Community focused week followed by an Academics focused week. Amid the student and faculty panels, helpful information presentations, and many delicious boxed lunches, what stands out the most in my mind is our class’s trip to the Enota Retreat Center in Hiawassee, Georgia. It would be an understatement to say that a few members of our class were a little worried when we...
