Ranked No. 1 in the Southeast and named one of the nation's "top 10 schools for employability in banking," Goizueta knows how to prepare students for successful careers in Finance.
Forward-thinking research combines with innovation, evidenced by the Center for Alternative Investments (CAI), which allows students to engage with real-world data. The center combines industry, research, and student involvement to deliver valuable intelligence to the marketplace and facilitate important relationships for our students.
Impressive in its own right, the center isn't all that distinguishes Goizueta's finance offerings from other top programs. Learn what else awaits Finance students:
Our Marketing courses are nothing if not enterprising. Supported by Goizueta's leading innovation and cutting-edge experiential learning opportunities, our marketing faculty leads in the area of marketing theory creation.
And it's not just our faculty who leads. The Goizueta Marketing Strategy Consultancy is one of the first student-led, project-based consultancies of its kind in the nation. It interfaces with Fortune 500 companies on critical real-world projects, while the Emory Marketing Analytics Center (EmoryMAC) teaches students to combine science-based testing and rigor to influence a management's vision for the future.
Our consulting students stand out among their peers. That’s thanks in large part to a curriculum that melds analytical and leadership training that they excel. Experience, however, plays largely into their success, as each student conducts annual consulting projects with local companies and non-profits.
Local non-profits benefit from student involvement and insight on consultative projects through the student-created Board Fellows program.
While finance, marketing, and consulting functions are some of our most popular areas of study, some students choose blaze their own trail beyond these disciplines. You're interested in Goizueta because you want to break through limitations. We applaud that, and we're committed to helping you prepare for successful careers.
