Fall 2020 Return to Campus

A New Academic Year

Although we all will need to adopt different ways of connecting, collaborating, and learning, Goizueta’s mission remains constant: to prepare principled leaders to a have a positive influence on business and society.

  • Fall Schedule

    The academic calendar will be shifted to start on August 19, with classes ending before Thanksgiving and remote exams in December. This condensed schedule means that classes will be held on Labor Day and there will be no fall break.
  • Course Options

    Choose from in-person and online courses. All in-person classes also will be available online to accommodate vulnerable populations or students unable to attend in-person classes (due to sickness, visa complications, or other factors).

    The safety and well-being of faculty, staff, and students are of the utmost importance. In addition to standardized protocols for all those returning to campus, additional safety precautions will be in place for the fall semester.
