At Goizueta, we invest in women to create a new generation of empowered leaders that will break through the barriers and positively impact business and society. The masters in finance program is not only designed by finance industry professionals, it is led by a pioneering female finance professional and academic.

We are proud to be an active participant in a variety of organizations and initiatives that support and promote women in business. You'll gain access to these and other organizations and resources that help get you there and support you along the way.

The Rosemary and John Brown Family Scholars Program is a $5 million scholarship endowment open to graduates of Spelman College and Agnes Scott College who are accepted into a Goizueta graduate program. Scholarships are merit-based. Brown Family Scholars admitted into any of Goizueta’s graduate programs will benefit from small-by-design program classes known for a collaborative culture and highly experiential learning model. This will help scholars to formally build camaraderie and continue with mentoring and networking during the remainder of their studies.

Goizueta is a proud partner of The FortĂ© Foundation and shares its vision and commitment to women in the workplace. Through our Women's Program, Goizueta aligns with other Foundation partners — leading companies and top business schools—to further women's advancement in business leadership through access to business education, opportunities, and a community.

Goizueta Women in Business (GWIB) offers professional and personal development opportunities for graduate women at Goizueta. You'll meet like-minded, accomplished women who seek growth beyond the classroom. Through GWIB-sponsored networking, speakers, social events, community service and communication, you'll foster relationships within and beyond Emory. And with each activity, you'll develop not only your community, but also your contribution to others.

The Goizueta Student-Alumni Mentor Program is designed to help students bridge the gap between the academic and professional world through the practical insights, coaching, and experience of the Goizueta alumni network. Through the Alumni Mentor Program, you're paired with an alumna—or alumnus if you prefer—according to shared areas of interest and affinity preferences. In your mentor, you'll find the voice of experience, a sounding board, and a perspective that helps expand your own.

The Center for Women at Emory helps Emory University provide the best possible environment for women as students, scholars, and employees. We advocate for gender equity throughout the University; provide resources and skill-building opportunities; and bring faculty, students, practitioners, activists, and other learners together to examine gender issues and work toward ethical solutions.


The small size of our master in finance program contributes to a supportive, community-oriented atmosphere and means you'll find not only the attention you need, but you'll also have all the engagement opportunities you can handle.

Diversity is at our core. At Goizueta Business School, not only do we encourage diversity, we embody it. We instill and celebrate a broad range of perspectives and backgrounds in our student body and embrace new teaching methods and course offerings.
