What Happens After the MBA Job Hunt Ends?

Whether we admit it or not, getting that dream post-MBA job is at the forefront of every MBA students mind. The company research, interview prep, and networking can be exciting, challenging, stressful, and frankly, all-encompassing. In the One Year program, those of us who are lucky enough to lock down that dream job in the fall face an interesting question: what happens for the next 6-7 months? While it is  a privileged dilemma to have, eliminating one of your primary daily focuses and passions for the past 6 months is a dilemma never the less. The easy answers on...

One-Year MBA Program Frequently Asked Questions

In working as a Goizueta Ambassador, helping prospective students with their MBA choice, and speaking to friends and colleagues about their MBA interests, I get many questions about the One-Year MBA Program here at GBS. I always enjoy talking about the program and answering questions about it, but I thought it would be a great idea to formalize some of the frequently asked questions I get in a post to help prospective students or even anyone with a curiosity about what a One-Year MBA program looks and feels like. I will tackle the experiential side of things, but please...

Global Learning: Health Innovation & Entrepreneurship in South Africa

I’m probably in over my head. This thought dominated my head space the morning of July 27th, as I made my way downstairs to join the other participants of the inaugural ANDI-EMORY Health Technology Innovation workshop. Myself and three other business students, four law students and four Phd students were gathered in a 5 star hotel with highly accomplished professionals in the international science, business and law arenas to address a very important issue: access to affordable and sustainable solutions for neglected disease in Africa. My role as an MBA student was to help African fellows create business  presentations for...

Goizueta’s #MBAsOpenUp

What makes Goizueta unique? This is the kind of business school where students don’t shy away from discussing the hard stuff. You’ll find ongoing conversations not only about accounting, finance, entrepreneurship, but also justice, race, society. Certainly, #MBAsOpenUp at Goizueta. In mid-October, the Black MBA Association at Goizueta organized a series of events in solidarity with other top MBA programs across the country participating in #MBAsOpenUp, a campus response to the Black Lives Matter movement . The kick-off event headlined by Dean Erica James, where she spoke personally about her experiences with race both professionally and in terms of her...

Delta, Goizueta announce MSM partnership

It is only October and already there is more excitement around Mid-Semester Modules than ever before. Mid-Semester Modules are held around Spring Break and include international trips. But, before we talk about what happened Wednesday, let’s briefly talk about what happened on Aug. 22, when first-year MBA students were finishing up Block 1 of core classes and second- and One-Year MBA students returned for the fall semester. The whole building was quiet as Dean Brian Mitchell revealed the seven 2017 MSM locations (video above). As each of the countries was announced, the excitement in the room grew to point...

Health Technology Innovation in Africa: Goizueta’s Core Values at Work

This summer, three GBS classmates and I had the opportunity to join in on an ongoing partnership which perfectly exemplifies Goizueta’s core value of Collaboration. The partnership between the African Network for Drugs and Diagnostic Innovation (ANDI) and Emory kicked off this year; its goal is to support African scientist-entrepreneurs in bringing their biotech inventions through the most challenging periods of commercialization and all the way to market, where they can have real impact on people’s health and well-being. The biotech projects the partnership supports are local innovations driven by local talent in hopes of addressing pressing and traditionally-neglected local health...

A Conversation with Dean Brian Mitchell

  Having completed two semesters of Business School, I believe that faculty is the top influencer of the MBA experience. In my opinion, a school can have the top facilities, a great location, and amazing students, but all of those factors can be mitigated by a sub-par faculty. The best part of the summer experience of the Emory 1-year MBA program is that we, the students, have had direct and unfiltered access to all levels of faculty. I have really enjoyed getting to know the faculty and leadership here at GBS, and after polling some classmates, it sounds like...

One-Year Profile: Rohan Chatterjee

We asked a few of our One-Year MBA current students to blog regularly in order to provide a snapshot of their Goizueta experience. Meet Rohan Chatterjee 17MBA.
