ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: JENNYFER GOUNÉ – Goizueta Consortium Experience in One Year

Looking back at this past year, many of my greatest memories happened with my fellow Consortium classmates here at Goizueta. From the Orientation Program in June to the end of year celebration and BBQ pool parties in between, the Consortium community here at Goizueta has made a profound impact on my overall GBS experience. Here is a snapshot of my year in the Emory Goizueta CGSM community! Summer 2014 Consortium Orientation Program (Austin, TX)      Fall 2014 Consortium Real Talk with Dean Brian Mitchell    Consortium Thanksgiving Potluck   Spring 2015 Consortium Game Night    End of Year...

SEMESTER SERIES: KATIE HULL – TEAM BUILDING WITH GOIZUETA

SEMESTER SERIES: KATIE HULL – TEAM BUILDING WITH GOIZUETA

One of the most exciting (and sometimes challenging) aspects of business school is working closely with a new team, in an often highly intensive, high stress environment. As if the first semester isn’t demanding enough, business schools up the ante by placing you in a group of 5-6 strangers with whom you’ll spend countless hours over the next four months. Getting to work closely with a new and diverse team was one aspect of business school I was most excited for, and my team did not disappoint. Our team of six represents four different countries and six different industries....

SEMESTER SERIES : GISELLE BARRERA – Hello NSHMBA!

An important part of the career search process as an MBA student is attending Diversity Career Conferences. There are many to choose from: National Black MBA, National Hispanic MBA, Asian MBA, Reaching Out, among others. All of them give us MBA students an opportunity to talk to recruiters of different companies, practice our elevator pitches and interview skills, and hopefully make important connections that can help us achieve our goals and one day work for our dream companies. These diversity associations have a career fair every year where many companies come with the specific interest to recruit qualified MBA...

CAREER CONNECTIONS SERIES : DJ SINGLETERRY – Looking Back on GCC

The Goizueta Career Connection was a great experience. Going into it, I was not entirely sure what to expect in regards to interactions and conversations with recruiters/alumni. I think the atmosphere created by the small breakout groups; high percentage of GBS alum by attending firms as well as structured preparation, led through the CMC throughout our Professional Development coursework, all positioned my peers and I for success during the event. It all began with the atmosphere. Students were broken into small groups of 5 or 6 and then rotated around to small tables with typically 2 people from each...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: ERIN NUSBAUM REHM – Before Holiday Season, there is Recruiting Season

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: ERIN NUSBAUM REHM – Before Holiday Season, there is Recruiting Season

Well, friends, we are officially in full-tilt recruiting season! Company representatives (and usually some alumni) are visiting our little corner of the world to show what their companies have to offer and what kinds of jobs they have available. These presentations are usually followed by a day of interviews for the afore-mentioned job opportunities.  Doing the math with my hp12c calculator (that I bought for school and now use as a paperweight), I have calculated that ambitious students can have up to 10 interviews a week! Most don’t, but there is a buzz around campus about who is interviewing...

SEMESTER SERIES : GISELLE BARRERA – Making the leap – Coming to Goizueta as an International Student

Going back to school to get your MBA is not an easy decision to make. When you add the fact that you have to leave your country, your family, friends –and life- behind, the decision can become much more complicated. This is exactly where I was about a year ago, pondering whether I should go to Business School. I had a good job, enjoyed the closeness with my friends and family, but had clear goals I was determined to achieve.  After going through the initial research, the application process, and receiving that -long awaited- call that I had been...
