From the Dean

As dean of Goizueta Business School, I'm charged with continuing the school's great legacy and leading us boldly into the future. It is a charge that I do not take lightly. I am pleased to report we are successfully positioned for continued, and even greater, success.

Goizueta Business School espouses the power of principled leadership. Our history includes an ethos of ethics and lifelong learning.

This is how we impact business. But we can do more.

I commit the school to continuing this mission while also leveraging the knowledge base and bold spirit of Emory University. We will focus this energy on strategic themes that intersect with our scholarship, expertise, and the needs of business today.

We will use our influence to convene the best minds full of integrity, ingenuity, and grit. Together, we can illuminate the complex interdependence of business and society in our companies, cities, industries, and beyond.

We will be guided by a set of principles created in honor of our namesake, Roberto C. Goizueta, the former Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company. These principles are for everyone willing to reboot business for increased performance.

Will you join us?

Sincerely,
Erika H. James
