Barefoot, other admissions officers share reading advice
Getting ready to tackle your MBA? Associate Dean of MBA Admissions Julie Barefoot and others provided some advice to Poets&Quants in regards to what should be on your summer reading list.
A world-class MBA education consists of more than your coursework. It’s important to continue personal development as business professionals by expanding your knowledge through exposure to theories and concepts on motivation and leadership. As such, one book we recommend to incoming students is the New York Times bestseller is Drive: The Surprising Truth About Motivates Us by Daniel Pink. And, reading is embraced after enrollment at Goizueta. Our students can participate in a Core Values book club which has discussed a number of thought-provoking books, including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Dr. Maya Angelou, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There by Marshall Goldsmith, and How Will You Measure Your Life? by Clayton M. Christensen.
