ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: BRETT PATTERSON – THE HEALTHY MBA

It’s the beginning of January.  A new year, a new semester, and a few resolutions.  I am not typically a New Years Resolution type of person, but I always find the fitness and diet craze to be particularly interesting this time of year.  I dread my regular trips to the gym because I know it will be overly crowded with the temporarily motivated resolution makers, yet I get incredibly excited by the increased inventory for discounted workout clothes at T.J. Maxx.  But whether you have a resolution or not, the MBA experience has the tendency to add a few...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: BRETT PATTERSON – MAKING A LIST AND CHECKING IT TWICE

With the holidays fast approaching, it is the time of year for checklists.  Checklists to finish up the semester, checklists to get ready for Christmas, and checklists to generally have fun!  My checklist just for the day includes: Return Amazon.com Textbook Rentals Mail Christmas Presents to Extended Family Get Oil Changed in Preparation for the 7.5 hour drive home Complete Travel Forms for Mid-Semester Module Begin Reading for the Dean’s Reading Series Finish this Blog Post While all these things are well and good, and make me feel productive as a check them off, there is another list that...

GBS VETERANS SERVE THE COMMUNITY

On Friday, December 4th, the GBS Veterans club served dinner for 50-60 veterans in need at the Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO) Campus. Funds for the event were raised in partnership with Goizueta Gives at the GBS Veterans cornhole tournament last month. Information about Atlanta-based VEO can be found here.

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: ALANNA HOLMAN – Not Trading In This Experience

Fall semester has been a different kind of busy. Instead of classes all day like in the summer, I have a “normal” class schedule Monday-Thursday. But, I have the added effort of recruitment. I cannot believe that I registered for Spring semester courses and May is not too far in the distance. So that might sound like added pressure, but I am thriving off the experience. Here are the reasons why I still love this MBA experience: I’m in great electives that I chose. After summer core classes, you get to choose your electives. Some stay strictly to their...

One-Year At Goizueta: Brett Patterson – How To Lose A Job Offer In 5 Easy Steps

Editorial Note: This post is satirical.  To successfully secure a job offer, please do the opposite of what is described below. Recruiting season is upon us!  One by one companies are coming to campus for company presentations, networking events, and on-campus interviews.  They are scooping up candidates left and right.  Some of my classmates have been missing for days, being kidnapped and flown to cities around the country for final round interviews.  This recruiting is demanding, time consuming, and should be avoided at all costs.  With 98% of Goizueta students receiving an employment offer within three months of graduation,...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: BRETT PATTERSON – SPACE INVADERS TO CLASSMATES

“Ahh!  Who are these new people invading our space?” is the thought that instantly comes to the mind of a One-Year student come August.  All 62 of us have ruled the school and owned the building this summer.  It was all about us and we had more space than we ever needed.  Gone are the days of taking over an entire auditorium style classroom for a team meeting and knowing that food buffets and snacks in the halls are exclusively for us.  As the First-Year students began orientation, we were still able to sneak a few free lunches from...

ONE-YEAR AT GOIZUETA: SCOTT KAGAN – THE UNBELIZEABLE SUMMER FINALE

The summer will fly by, they said.  It is a ton of work but strangely you will miss it, they said.  Being the skeptic I am, I found these words hard to comprehend.  Yet, as I sit in the start of my fall semester, I can certainly confirm both of those statements.  Why do I think the summer flew by and how will I miss it?  For starters, the old adage of “time flies when you are having fun” certainly would apply (see previous posts).  Additionally, with such a jam packed schedule it is utterly impossible to be bored,...
