Good school

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

This review is for Emory Goizueta

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2019

Experience during the program

There are a lot of things that I really like about Goizueta - the Professors, courses, peer group, facilities

There are a few things that could be improved significantly - brand value needs to be improved outside of Atlanta and the career services needs to bring in more tech firms to campus.

There are amazing options to stay within a mile of the campus (Emory point, Campus Crossings, Post Briarcliff) and the facilities in the campus (sports center, library) are amazing.

The alumni are extremely response and supportive. However, as the class size is one of the smallest, the alumni network isn't as large as some of the other schools.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Some of the professors are really good and I've been able to learn a lot in their classes. e.g. Microeconomics by Prof. Ray Hill, Marketing Management by Prof. Ryan Hamilton, Process, Systems and Management by Prof. Ram Chellappa

About job placement process

The school attracts a lot of good companies, particularly in Consulting and Marketing. As with most schools currently, the situation for international students isn't the most ideal and it's certainly a uphill battle in terms of recruiting. Goizueta isn't exactly known for Tech and that's primarily because of the location. For Tech recruiting, networking and off-campus opportunities will be your best bets.
