John R. Lewis Racial Justice Case Competition: More than Competing

This past winter, I teamed up with four Goizueta Business School classmates for the John R. Lewis Racial Justice Case Competition (JLCC). If this is your first introduction to JLCC, its purpose is to bring corporations and students interested in business together to create innovative and actionable racial justice initiatives. Please, read more about JLCC here. This was my first case competition. While I expected competition, I also had the opportunity to enjoy connection, education, impact, and celebration. Here’s how it all went… In November, my team formed by considering the diversity of perspectives needed to compete successfully. I particularly...

The Goizueta Impact Continues…

One of the reasons I applied to Goizueta Business School was for its experiential offerings through the IMPACT360 program. During the spring semester of my first year, four of my classmates and I worked on a project with a local nonprofit whose mission is to accelerate Atlanta’s competitiveness for its residents and businesses. It was rewarding to work in a concerted effort with my peers and leaders within the Atlanta business community to deliver solutions that drove value for the organization. While applying to business schools, I hadn’t imagined that I would gain that level of exposure so quickly...

What is an MBA?

If you are researching graduate business degrees you may be asking, what is an MBA and how does it compare to a specialized master’s degree in business.

Paying it Forward: BMBAA Mentorship Program Continues into the Spring Semester

Early last fall, Kristen Little 21MBA, president of the Goizueta Black MBA Association (BMBAA), and Lyndsey Fridie 21MBA, VP of Community Involvement for BMBAA, eager to have a greater impact on the wider Atlanta community, conceived an idea for a mentorship program where Goizueta MBAs would serve as mentors for Black undergraduate students in Georgia.

Working with Ross Thompson, the president of the Morehouse Business Association, Lyndsey and Kristen brought the idea to fruition...

Part-Time MBA vs Full-Time MBA

Part-Time MBA vs Full-Time MBA

The value of earning an MBA degree has never been higher. For students, the financial return on investment is usually quite significant. Just as important, and sometimes overlooked, is the value to the organizations and communities today’s MBA graduates are being trained to deliver. The need for principled leaders who can create and manage viable businesses that meet the needs of individuals and society is on display everywhere we look. Fortunately, there are also more pathways to earning an MBA than ever. A common question we answer is which MBA is the right fit for me — a Part-Time...

Books as Self-Care: Using This Moment To Become a Better Leader

When was the last time you read a good book? I’m not talking about textbook excerpts or required readings from a syllabus. Really think. How long has it been since you read a good book? I love to read, but if I’m being honest, most of the reading I’ve done in the last year and a half has not been of my own volition. So, when a box arrived for me in the mail on Monday, I could hardly wait to open it. Inside, was a collection of 19 books that I had ordered using my Social Enterprise Fellowship...

Value of an MBA: Is an MBA Worth It?

The business environment of today requires leaders who are skilled at managing much more than the bottom line. The relationship between business and society has enormous implications and has never been more critical. As evidence, consider how over 180 of the nation’s top CEOs have redefined the purpose of a corporation, through the guidance of The Business Roundtable just over a year ago. Of course shareholders are not forgotten, but the prominence of employees, suppliers, and communities is a notable evolution.  So what does that mean for the value of an MBA? Is it still worth the investment? That...
