Women

Today, more women than ever are attending business school. But with competition and a changing business landscape, it sometimes takes more than just an MBA to break through the glass ceiling. At Goizueta, we offer women savvy business acumen and strong analytical skills coupled with a supportive and inspiring network, outstanding leadership skills, and the confidence to get your contributions noticed.

At Goizueta, our students receive the tools they need for individual success. We combine academic theory with experiential learning and leadership development to deliver valuable learning. Our network of engaged and committed alumni goes above and beyond, providing our graduates with a leg up over other MBA graduates. Add to this formal and personalized leadership training, and you can see why our many female graduates are so pleased with their Goizueta experience.

Our location in a dynamic city ranked #3 for Fortune 500 company headquarters lets us bring women trailblazers into the classroom to share their insights. It also means our students thrive from business connections with the community that produces internships and industry-sponsored projects. And, in line with our ranking as a top-20 school for post-MBA earnings, our women graduates are scaling heights in prominent companies and nonprofit organizations all around the world.
