Interim Dean Karen Sedatole

As the interim dean of Goizueta Business School, I'm charged with continuing the legacy of this esteemed institution and leading it into the future. I am honored to be entrusted with advancing Goizueta’s mission to prepare principled leaders for positive influence in business and society.

Goizueta Business School is a place where world class faculty, students eager to learn, alumni seeking to serve, and corporate partners wanting to engage come together every day in big and small ways to honor the legacy of our namesake, Roberto C. Goizueta the former Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company.

Our history includes an ethos of ethical leadership, lifelong learning, and meaningful engagement with the business community.

I commit the school to building on our history as we leverage the knowledge base and the spirit of Emory University. Our foundation is strong and unshakeable, and we will continue building on that foundation to meet the needs of business today and in the future, guided by a set of principles based on the values and beliefs of Mr. Goizueta.

The challenges we face today are like none other. But now is not the time to stand still or to retreat. Rather, it’s a time to capture the learnings from meeting our challenges and to reimagine what business education could and should be.

The faculty, staff, and students at Goizueta stand ready to take on that mission, and we are prepared and positioned for success.

We invite you to share our journey.
