Minorities

Diversity is at our Core. At Goizueta, we believe a diverse community fuels greater business results by combining various backgrounds and perspectives into valuable insights.

This belief is evidenced by our long-standing relationship with the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (CGSM). Since 2001, we have recruited a number of students through this organization, and we are now the only Consortium school to offer both a One-Year and Two-Year MBA option.

Testimonials

"The fact that Goizueta is a small school, that students work closely together in teams, and that the community is diverse means that we had many opportunities to learn to communicate more effectively and persuasively."

-Kristen Keitt, Two-Year MBA 2008
 Senior Brand Manager, L'Oréal Paris USA
 New York, NY

"I attended a national conference where I met an Emory alum who was able to connect me with the marketing manager at Frito-Lay.  Through that introduction, I was able to get added to the next day’s interview schedule and ultimately land the internship that summer.  Because Emory’s network is so engaged, those kinds of important connections happen every day."

-Brandi Ray, Two-Year MBA 2010
