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...

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...

Three takeaways from Colombia Module

Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to travel to Colombia was part of the One-Year MBA module. Due to our accelerated schedule, One-Year students are only able to participate in one Mid-Semester Module (MSM), so this trip ensures the ability to have two opportunities to travel internationally with Goizueta. I was unsure of what to expect when I signed up for the trip in May, but I am very glad to have taken the trip and look forward to participating in an MSM next year! Here are three takeaways from my experience: Lessons from the Classroom Were Reinforced...

Traveling to Colombia provides eye-opening experience

One-Year 18MBA class travels to Colombia to experience best business practices, culture My classmates and I began our exploration of Colombia in the city of Bogota, an urban oasis sprawling with shops and restaurants, with old, beautiful buildings peeking out on every corner. Our days in Bogota were filled with excitement, learning and culture. One moment, we were sipping coffee from a local startup, and the next we were enjoying a dinner and a show in Chico Norte. The smell of fried plantains was accompanied by live performers singing the most popular Carlos Vives Spanish tunes and salsa dancing. On our second...

More Life: A Farewell to B-School

During my One-Year MBA experience at Emory, I learned how to conduct a thorough company valuation. I learned how the inner workings of mergers and acquisitions. I learned how to run regressions and interpret the results in order to make meaningful business decisions. I have a million other hard skills that I was able to gain from the 1-Year MBA experience, and while they are all extremely valuable to me, I also gained a soft skill that may end up being the most valuable of all: confidence. Completing two years’ worth of curriculum in one calendar year, while attaining...

A Visit to CHOA with the GHA

On March 24th, 2017, I, along with 10 other Goizueta Healthcare Association (GHA) members had the privilege of touring Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) and meeting with executives in the Marketing, Physician Practice Operations, Strategy and Financial Planning departments. CHOA is one of the largest and most prestigious pediatric healthcare systems in the United States, and a true staple of the Atlanta community with 3 hospitals, over 10,000 employees,  622 licensed beds, trauma 1 and 2 centers and over 1,900 physicians. It is easy to describe CHOA using facts and statistics, but what they do is extremely clear and...

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...
