Goizueta Foundation Gifts $30M to Namesake B-School
Emory University’s Goizueta Business School has announced that it will receive a gift of $30 million from The Goizueta Foundation. In honor of namesake Roberto Goizueta, former chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company, the business school will invest the gift in three areas that closely reflect his vision and legacy. These include a global classroom, innovation center, and institute for business and society.

“Roberto C. Goizueta believed that it is business’ responsibility to use its resources – its people, its finances, and its influence – to do well in the world and to create a dignified quality of life for everyone,” said Erika H. James, John H. Harland Dean of the Goizueta Business School.
The gift is the largest in the history of the business school. It is also the capstone on a critical year in the Goizueta Business School’s history. In 2019, the school celebrated the 25th anniversary of its naming after Roberto Goizueta. Last year was also the centennial of its founding.
