Before you can decide if you want to join us, you need to know who we are. Our program consists of approximately 600 juniors and seniors who are continuing students from Emory and Oxford Colleges. Although we have our own distinctive identity, we are very much a part of Emory and share its vision and intellectual focus.
What sets us apart as a professional school is that our courses center on understanding the key functions that take place inside organizations and how they impact, and are impacted by, the external environment in which they operate.
Our professional orientation does not mean that all of our students have figured out what they want to be when they grow up.
We know you are destined to accomplish great things, even if you have not determined your exact goals. Whether your vision for the future is in sharp focus or is still a little blurred, you will find students with similar aspirations in our community. Some of your future classmates have already planned their first career move, and possibly ones that will follow.
Other prospective BBA students have absolutely no idea what they will be doing next year, or even next week. Many BBAs find themselves headed in the direction of medicine, law, politics, or the non-profit arena. Whatever path you eventually choose, the BBA program will give you an approach to problem solving and a methodology for making things happen.
Of course, the business school isn’t for everyone. Our curriculum is rigorous and all students are expected to come to class prepared to make meaningful contributions. Being one of us means showing you are willing to take on challenges, push yourself intellectually, and take some risks. It means doing well in freshman and sophomore classes and getting involved. If this description fits you, then the BBA program may be just what you are seeking. We invite you to take a closer look.
A website has been created specifically for Emory College and Oxford College pre-BBA students to share further information with you on requirements, the application process, and programs of interest. Please click here to access the Pre-BBA Information Site.
