Broaden Your Perspective.
Immerse yourself in knowledge. Goizueta's Weekend Program curriculum shows you a comprehensive view of how organizations operate across all areas, so you can have maximum impact on the job.
We expand your strategic thinking through rigorous and relevant teaching that outlines the whole of business and then complement this knowledge with immersive opportunities to interact with industries and functions in ways that bring your learning to life.
Begin with Core Business Acumen courses that ground you with the competence needed to succeed in today's dynamic business world. Then, choose to deep-dive into one (or more) of our five Areas of Focus — Finance, Healthcare Management, Leadership, Strategy, and General Management — to demonstrate a higher level of expertise. These topics encompass some of our school’s key academic strengths, allowing you to leverage Emory's worldwide reputation for excellence. In addition, we structure your experience with functional and industry-based Action Learning Immersions — our innovative approach that gives you intense exposure to pertinent challenges in the marketplace, on topics such as problem solving, public policy, and global business practices— all to facilitate your learning into practice.
Our Weekend Program curriculum offers you everything you need to tackle the toughest challenges of business and gives you an incomparable advantage of lifelong opportunities.
