ONE YEAR AT GOIZUETA: STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS

Coming into Goizueta this summer, we, the One Year 2017 MBA class were already aware of the great legacy of those that preceded us. This legacy starts with Roberto Goizueta himself, the legendary Coca Cola CEO who took an already established iconic global brand to new heights with new bottling and financial strategies. The legacy then trickles down to the long list of prestigious alumni who have roamed the halls of Goizueta. All around the world, GBS alumni work as CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies, heads of state, successful entrepreneurs, and much more. We were greeted in our first...

EvMBA THOUGHTS ON THE GETTYSBURG LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE

I received an email a few months ago about participating in the  Leadership Experience. Although I was skeptical about the applicability of military leadership concepts from a Civil War battle in 1863 to business leadership in the 21st century, my interest was piqued. Personally, I wanted to know more about one of the most pivotal battles in U.S. history and professionally I was interested to find out if decisions made by Civil War leaders could be vital to improving my own decision-making ability and leadership skills. I paid the nominal $300 fee covering lodging, materials, and meals, as well...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: PRIYANKA VOHRA – MYTHS & FACTS: ONE MONTH IN, LOOKING BACK

I think if time traveling existed, it’d feel a little like the past month at Goizueta.  Somehow, in the past 4 weeks, we’ve managed to fit in 500 pages of reading, 2 KEGS, 12 team meetings, 4 Alon’s lunch boxes, 9 case studies, 2 days at Lake Lanier, 3 quizzes, and 1 wine down. And those are just the stats I can remember! Remembering back to those weeks leading up to Onboarding, I did my due diligence of reading about the summer experience at Goizueta for the One Year students. I talked to alumni, current students, and I even...

TWO YEAR VETERAN REFLECTION

Submitted by Benjamin Feldman, U.S. Army Veteran and Two Year 2016 alumnus. Co-President of Goizueta Veterans Club 2015-16. I’ve just finished my 2nd year, full-time MBA at Goizueta, and previously I was an active duty, U.S. Army infantry officer for 7 years.   For many reasons this past  semester was a great one, but the biggest reason was that I decided to accept my full-time offer from Citigroup here in Atlanta, and so my wife Alison and I are very excited to settle down here in the city. I had a great internship experience with Citi this past summer, and...
