Social Enterprise @ Goizueta, created in 2008, gives students the opportunity to work with Atlanta’s non-profit and for-profit organizations that are striving to make a positive impact in the world. Much of the work is done with non-profits interested in using business models to pursue global changes in areas such as microfinance, healthcare, and more. Other work with for-profit organizations focused on using market-based strategies to achieve social purposes such as sustainability, delivering products that serve disadvantaged populations, and lending financial support to non-profit efforts around the world.
In 2010, Goizueta created Emory MAC - a unique educational and research enterprise where leading scholars and business leaders will assemble and collaborate to address issues related to marketing analytics and performance management for major stakeholders--customers, employees and shareholders. Research will examine the increasingly important role of science-based competitive strategy and differentiation in marketing management.
