Biography

Ali had the opportunity to attend several recruiting conferences the summer before she came to Goizueta. She was eager to meet with top companies in the investment banking industry, but worried she wasn’t yet prepared for the rigorous interviewing process associated with elite MBA jobs.

Enter the Goizueta Career Management Center. Ali’s CMC counselor worked tirelessly with her throughout the summer to prepare her for the interviewing process and ensure she had a top-notch resume to present to firms. “My career counselor worked through countless versions of my resume with me, often reviewing it line by line over the phone,” says Ali. “The CMC also paired me with a second-year peer career coach with similar career goals to serve as a mentor. With this incredible support network behind me, I was able to secure my dream internship with one of the top firms in the industry before my first day of class!”

Ali’s favorite MBA class so far has been Managerial Finance. “Our professor made sure we not only knew the basics inside and out but could also apply them to real world scenarios.” Additionally, after speaking with Ali about her career plans, he went out of his way to share industry articles and set up time for her to meet with his wife, an ex-banker. Says Ali, “I was looking for a program with hands-on faculty and staff, a collaborative student environment and a strong alumni network. Goizueta met all of these needs and more.”
