Goizueta Business School

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.

Fast forward four years, as I walked into one of the first sessions of the summer onboarding for the one-year program (I later deemed that my motivation included learning as quickly as possible!). Professor Steve Walton was tasked with the challenge of easing 62 students into the world of case studies beginning with “Operations...
