We asked a few of our One-Year MBA current students to blog regularly in order to provide a snapshot of their Goizueta experience over the course of one year. Meet Amanda Pegues 16MBA.
Name: Amanda Pegues
Class Year: 2016
Concentration: Organization Management & Social Enterprise
Previous Employer & Position: J.P. Morgan Investment Bank, Human Resources
Undergraduate Institution & Major: University of Wisconsin-Madison
Why I chose Goizueta: Goizueta is a notable institution that not only sits on Emory’s gorgeous campus but also boasts great access to the city of Atlanta. In talking with alumni during my application process I was frequently impressed by the level of alumni engagement and the power of the small student to faculty ratio. There are some really great professors here who are not only passionate about teaching but truly champion the holistic experience of learning – integrating field experiences with classroom activities. It’s these experiences that will ultimately give me the leverage I need to be a well-rounded and dynamic professional moving forward.
