Roberto C. GoizuetaOur namesake was one of the great business leaders of the 20th century. During his 16-year tenure at The Coca Cola Company, Roberto Goizueta increased its value from $4 billion to $145 billion — ensuring its place among "America's Most Admired Corporations," as listed by Fortune. While building the business, Roberto Goizueta also contributed substantially to the progress of Emory and the business school.
Throughout his life, Roberto Goizueta was driven by curiosity, intellectual courage, and integrity. We are honored to share his name and live out his values, which form the cornerstone of our educational approach and are fundamental to our mission to educate the best of tomorrow's leaders.
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 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 Forté Foundation and shares its vision and commitment to women in the workplace.

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.

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.
