One-Year MBA Veteran Reflection at Graduation

Pictured: One Year MBA students at Jennifer’s (5th from left) housewarming Submitted by Jennifer Kraus, One Year MBA 2017 and Army veteran Only a year ago, I moved to Atlanta and was preparing to start the One Year MBA program at Goizueta. Now, I am in the last week of classes, counting down to graduation, and preparing to start as a global business manager at Wipro this summer. The year has been a whirlwind – I had a general idea of what I wanted to do when I came to pursue my MBA but this year has helped me more...

VETERAN EXPERIENCE: ONE YEAR MBA

Submitted by Jen Kraus, Army veteran and One Year MBA ’17 After only six weeks in the accelerated one year MBA program, I am already preparing for finals week for the first set of core classes. Having spent the last ten years in the active Army as a logistics officer, I was nervous about adjusting to life outside the military but the whirlwind of the last six weeks has been an amazing experience.  Due to the small intimate environment, I have found many of the things I liked best about the military, most specifically the camaraderie and team building,...

ONE YEAR AT GOIZUETA: PRIYANKA VOHRA – FORT BENNING LEADERSHIP ACADEMY CHALLENGE

I don’t come from a military background; in fact, only one person in our intimate class of 66 does know what it’s like to be in the army. Therefore, it came as no surprise that on the day of our highly anticipated Fort Benning Leadership Academy Challenge, the idea of being on the bus outside school at ‘Oh Six-Hundred’ on Saturday morning was a bit of a foreign concept to everyone. That morning, as we arrived at Goizueta before sunrise, I could sense the exhaustion of my classmates. After all, we’d just wrapped yet another intense week of deliverables, and...

One-Year Profile: Rohan Chatterjee

We asked a few of our One-Year MBA current students to blog regularly in order to provide a snapshot of their Goizueta experience. Meet Rohan Chatterjee 17MBA. Name: Rohan Chatterjee Class Year: 2017 Concentration: Consulting (healthcare/strategy) Previous Employer: Protiviti Undergraduate Institution: The University of Georgia Why I chose Goizueta: As an Atlanta native, I have always been aware of the Emory brand and have strived to associate myself with it.

The One Year Program format...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: ALANNA HOLMAN – BRAZIL MSM PART 2: RIO DE JANEIRO

Cidade Maravilhosa!  My sentiments exactly when I arrived in Rio de Janeiro.  From the landscape, buildings and people, Rio is truly vibrant.  The sun was out and shining, beckoning us to soak it all in. During the week, our company visits introduced us to all aspects of business in Rio, especially in regards to sports and the 2016 Summer Olympics.  However, my favorite company visit was at the headquarters of Rock in Rio.  We were fortunate to have CEO Louis Justo present to us.  He shared the exciting story of this historic music festival and its success as an entertainment...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: ALANNA HOLMAN – BRAZIL MSM PART 1: SÃO PAULO

Mid-Semester Modules (MSM) are an excellent opportunity to meet the Global Requirement for graduation and learn about business in another country and continent.  It’s also a great opportunity to become closer to your Full-Time MBA classmates while exploring new territory. For me, this was an extra special opportunity: I’ve never traveled abroad before.  I knew when starting my One-Year journey, that I wanted to be a part of an international MSM.  What better way to stamp my passport than with my classmates?  I chose Brazil as my first destination because 1) it is summer during our winter (i.e. no...

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...
