Make A Difference

Business school, it turns out, is still a man's world. For all the strides women have made, they represent fewer than 30% of students in MBA programs across the US. Yet, women make up 47% of the workforce, and the majority of them (53%) are primary breadwinners.

This year 88 women will leave Goizueta MBA Program with a strong resume and career ambitions that may lead them on a bold new trajectory. The knowledge they take with them and the confidence they have gained will open new doors, and perhaps change the world. It's a tough, but invigorating educational experience; long hours of study on top of demanding work.

With your help, EWG will make it easier for one deserving Executive MBA student reach her dream. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to endow an annual $5000 scholarship to a deserving Executive MBA Student. Thanks to our generous donors, we've already reached $75,000.

Help us achieve our goal. Make a gift or a pledge designated to the EWG Scholarship by giving to Emory.
