ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: BRETT PATTERSON – SOUTHEAST ASIAN FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH, & DINNER

“How has this experience changed you?” – The prompt for the final paper following our Mid-Semester Module foray around Singapore and Malaysia “I’ve gotten a little fatter…?” – My first thought in regards to the two weeks of Southeast Asian delights I have to admit, as thrilled as I was to explore a new continent and culture and cross some places off my travel bucket list, I was also a little nervous about acclimating to the Southeast Asian diet.  Growing up, my family had a steady rotation between American, Italian, and Mexican food.  I have always been a little...

All of our international students work so hard to make signature dishes from their home country. While it gets somewhat competitive, I’m not complaining when it comes to the results! It’s not small feat to cook...

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...
