Hi,

I wanted to know about the Brand Management concentration at Goizueta. Any insight on who the good professors are and what exactly is their teaching methodology is, the best electives in product manage,the job market for Product Management etc.

While the Goizueta website is very informative, I was unable to find how exactly is the 2 years course designed. I was able to figure out the following, please correct me if I’m wrong:

First semester is basically core courses+ IMPACT 360 core+Company visit inane of various US cities.

Second Semester: Select 4 electives+ Impact 360 Project (based on your concentration?)

Then we have the summer internships.

This is where it gets a little fuzzy for me. I really would appreciate any insight on how the second year is structured.

Hey Jungshook ,

Thank you for your question.

We do have alot many excellent and highly experienced professors in Brand management. I am also recruiting for Product Management roles this year and I must say there are plenty courses such as Product management, analytics for e markets, Predictive Analysis, etc.

Teaching methodology is highly case and practical based. You will be asked to solve business problems as well implement models, almost similar to what a Product Manager does. Fortunately, job market for Product Management is quite better than any other field we have, if you are international. If you are domestic, you have ample of opportunities for all the fields. Having said so, tech recruitment process is highly unstructured. So, it sometimes involve long waitings after the application process. It is irrespective of the school you are applying from.

Your research is 100% correct. And after 1st semester, you will be given ample of subjects to choose from and you can make your concentration accordingly. It is independent of whichever semester you are in after the 1st one.

So, basically, the subjects I have chosen this semester will also have many 2nd years. Both the years will be studying together depending on the common subjects.

I hope that helps. Let me know if you have further questions.

My concentration is in Finance, so I can't help you a ton re: Brand Management, but here is what the course load looks like:

1st year Fall:

Mandatory Core courses: economics, finance, marketing, operations, strategy, accounting, IMPACT (consulting problem solving), and statistics
Banking recruiting
Consulting recruiting
Various other recruiting (several conferences where it is possible to get a summer offer, like National Black MBA)
22 credit hours

1st year Spring:

Mandatory courses: IMPACT360 (continuation of IMPACT from the fall, but with a new team and an actual company to work with on a project), Leadership/Emotional Intelligence, Mid-Semester Module (domestic is free, international costs around $4-5k)
Minimum of 2 electives, but can take up to 5 electives
Continued recruiting for summer internships
13-22 total credit hours

2nd year Fall:
4-7 elective courses
Re-recruiting (if you didn't get a full time offer or didn't like your internship)
12-21 credit hours

2nd year Spring:

4-7 elective courses
Mid-Semester Module (domestic is free, international costs around $4-5k)
13-22 credit hours

Minimum credit hours required to graduate: 69

So, you get at least 13 electives to take, spread over your last 3 semesters. You have to take at least 4 classes per semester, but you can take up to 7. Hope this helps.

Hi - I am trying to gather more information as it relates to non-traditional post-MBA roles (asset management/investment management) and corporate strategy

Secondly, just generally speaking, how is the quality of the OCR?

Any feedback from current students on this topic would be much appreciated!

hey stratecashomie ,

It depends on whether you are domestic or international. International candidates have hard time in these goals while it is pretty good for domestic students.

Good luck :)
