Two-Year MBA Veteran Reflection at Graduation

Submitted by Dylan Vest, Two-Year MBA 2017 and Navy veteran This Spring at Goizueta is the last I’ll experience as an MBA candidate at Emory, and it’s flying by even faster than I anticipated. Between travel, formals, house-warming parties, graduation and a plethora of other activities that have already crept into a good portion of my calendar over the next few weeks, I have precious little time left before I’m walking across the stage (Well, we’ll see how this Global Macro final goes). Naturally, being a prior Naval Officer, I saw this coming and decided to make a proper...


Submitted by Sacha Silvana (Army), first-year student in the Two Year MBA program This fall at Goizueta I had the opportunity to participate in a wide array of activities.  One of the main highlights for me was getting to know my high caliber classmates.  The class sizes are relatively small, which allows you to really bond with your classmates.  Not only do you get to know them personally, but you learn many new skills from working closely with them.  Goizueta does an outstanding job at creating a class of accomplished individuals from a variety of backgrounds.  Pertaining to academics, a...


Submitted by Benjamin Feldman, U.S. Army Veteran and Two Year 2016 alumnus. Co-President of Goizueta Veterans Club 2015-16. I’ve just finished my 2nd year, full-time MBA at Goizueta, and previously I was an active duty, U.S. Army infantry officer for 7 years.   For many reasons this past  semester was a great one, but the biggest reason was that I decided to accept my full-time offer from Citigroup here in Atlanta, and so my wife Alison and I are very excited to settle down here in the city. I had a great internship experience with Citi this past summer, and...


Every spring our students participate in MidSemester Modules. These curricular requirements can be completed stateside or abroad. Two of our U.S. Army veterans, Jonathan Brinks and Charles Stewart, who are first year students in the Two Year MBA program, travelled with their classmates to Brazil.  Here are some postcard scenes from their trip.

  Submitted by Leland Franks, Two Year MBA 2017 and Goizueta Veterans Club president. Nine days in wine country!  We worked our way up and down Sonoma Valley tasting some of the best wines in the world.  We ended up as members of an irresponsible number of wineries, and made a strong start to the wine collection!  Best vacation we have ever taken!

From Stewart Winslow, Marine Veteran, Two-Year MBA 2016: What began two years ago is now about to conclude in less than one semester.  That journey which started with the miserable balancing act of managing responsibilities at 1st Marine Division Headquarters while studying for the GMAT/GRE, while researching multiple MBA programs, while standing overnight posts is actually about to end.  It has flown by.  Similar to the stresses of military schools, training programs and deployments, the Emory full-time MBA program has been a series of stressful deadlines, crunch times, and “times to prove yourself”.  What a lot of people do not realize...


Veterans from the Full-time MBA programs visited Lockheed Martin and were hosted by fellow student-veteran Matthew Bahr, from the Executive MBA program. Highlights included a discussion of the aviation industry with General Manager Shan Cooper EMBA95 and a visit to the F-35 and C-130 assembly lines.

Semester Series: Sumeet Sinha – My First Semester

I’m almost a semester down, three more to go. After attending the last lecture of the semester I realized how quickly the time flew by. My friends who applied for class of 2018 shared with me their Emory admission results, and it feels so surreal that I was in their position a year ago, and it still feels like yesterday. My first semester at Goizueta Business School allowed me to learn a lot of stuff, although most of the time I found myself thinking how I’d manage all of it in such short span of time. We had our initial...
