In addition to its flagship course, "Business and the Public Policy Process: How Washington Works," the Campus designs tailored courses for corporations & universities.

    Goizueta Impact Field Electives

    You will have the opportunity to solve an issue of strategic importance for a client in the field or discipline of your choice. The semester kicks off with a common Goizueta IMPACT boot camp where you go deeper into project and client relationship management. You will work with internal and external leadership coaches to make sure your team launches successfully. Throughout the semester, expert faculty and coaching resources support the teams in developing their insights and recommendations. At the end of the semester, project teams present their recommendations to panels of clients, other business leaders, faculty and staff. In 2016, Goizueta Client Day brought over 250 judges to campus, providing a tremendous opportunity to connect with the broader business community and showcase our student talent.

The course includes a number of guest lectures, with speakers drawn from the local investment management industry. A term project is assigned wherein students develop a detailed investment strategy, specifying an exact set of criteria to be used to select a portfolio of stocks. Students will present their ideas to the class at the end of the semester.

  • Featured Club: Mid-Semester Modules

    A short hiatus from classes can be helpful, especially when it furthers your understanding of international business leadership. In the middle of the spring semester, students can step out of the classroom and join in faculty-led travel modules that explore a current topic within the context of an international setting like Brazil, China, Egypt, South Africa, and Thailand to name a few. In addition to opportunities such as overseas travel and global internships, Goizueta offers students courses specially designed to offer a global outlook in their area of interest.
