MARINE REFLECTION ON WEEKEND MBA

Submitted by MAJ Paul Lowman (Marines), second semester student in the Weekend Executive MBA program and one of Goizueta’s Fort Benning Fellows. Fall 2016 was a real eye-opener.  The WEMBA program has the same number of class hours and academic requirements as other programs so the learning curve is steep and the nights of studying are long.  The truth is, I wouldn’t have it any other way!  This is a great challenge, but thankfully, there are fellow vets, students, and the phenomenal staff and faculty at GBS to overcome all that is placed in your path.  In all seriousness,...

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...

THE EMBA PROGRAM: LISA’S EXPERIENCE

I’m Lisa Landsberg, Air Force Veteran and Weekend Executive Class of 2017. The best thing that happened this past fall semester was that I was assigned to a group with four other candidates (3 of us are veterans!) and we formed into a really awesome team and, amid the rollercoaster of life, all had a successful semester together. Now I call them friends and as we move into next term I know I have four people in class that will be looking out for me, and I for them. I am looking forward to staying connected to them well beyond the program which is...

Guest Post: Natalie Fisk – Evening MBAs Can Be Social Too

Below is a guest post from current Evening MBA student Natalie Fisk:  As a full time employee and part-time student, I found it hard to imagine maintaining a social life once I started Emory’s evening program. I arrived at Emory fully willing to sacrifice my personal freedoms in exchange for a prestigious degree. However, I quickly learned that the Emory Evening MBA Program Office not only supports multiple networking events throughout the year, but they actually encourage us to go out and have fun during our down time! Since most of the students in the evening program are at...
