A Partner from the start
Everything about Goizueta's MSBA is designed to assist students with career exploration and success, including the opportunities we deliver before, during and after your program.
Prior to arriving on campus, you will complete a self-assessment to gain valuable insight into your personal strengths, weaknesses, and interests. This self-discovery is paired with team building and leadership development skills during your Preparatory Immersion Month – three boot camp styles academic periods where students build foundational acumen in business and technology in preparation for core courses and industry interactions.
During the fall semester your slate of courses expose you to our talented faculty and an array of classes aligned to the needs of the business world. From predictive modeling to advanced data analytics, your curriculum will build your knowledge and your network through exposure to companies and collaborative projects.

In addition to the normal Optional Practical Training (OPT) period of 12 months, a STEM degree allows for a 24-month extension of post-completion OPT, offering a total eligibility of up to 36 months.
