Real Humans of Emory Goizueta’s MBA Class of 2020

Long the hub of the South, Atlanta has been rapidly gaining national prominence due to the rise of its homegrown rap scene and its booming media economy, anchored by firms such as Turner and Tyler Perry Studios. Long before Atlanta became a music and media hub, Atlanta was—and remains—a major international business hub. Currently, the city is home to massive companies such as Coca-Cola, Delta, UPS, and the Home Depot. Given the companies headquartered in the city, it is a no-brainer that Atlanta is a stellar place for MBA students to learn their craft.

Emory University’s Goizueta Business School is an elite business school that provides business professionals with the opportunity to advance their careers and gain access to the various companies that call Atlanta home. Over the course of its two-year program, students learn about management and develop the skills to be effective leaders.

In addition to the exceptional training Goizueta offers, one of the school’s major selling points is its intimacy; the student to teacher ratio at Goizueta is 5:1—the lowest among the elite business schools. The major advantage of this low ratio is the access students have to professors and career staff. Incoming classes also create close bonds that will last long after all of them move on to their careers.

The 181 students that comprise the Goizueta MBA Class of 2020 can take advantage of the personalized attention that they will receive on campus as well as the various business and cultural resources offered by Atlanta.

Among the Class of 2020, the average GPA is 3.3 and the mean GMAT is 685. In terms of the overall student makeup, 30 percent of the Class of 2020 is female, 13 percent are minority students, and 28 percent are international students. The average Goizueta student has 5.5 years of previous professional experience.

The five students we profiled for this edition of our Real Humans series come from wildly different backgrounds and have varying goals. Rather than talking about who they are and where they want to go, it’s time for us to step aside and let them tell you their stories.
