Emory University’s Goizueta Business School announced recently they have secured more than $41 million in new scholarship donations with three more years of the fundraising campaign remaining. Goizueta considers student scholarships a fundraising priority, as a means to attract the best and brightest students.
“The cost of pursuing a graduate degree is a significant investment,” said Melissa Rapp, associate dean of graduate admissions at Goizueta. “Scholarships provide individual students financial relief and allow our school to attract the most sought-after student talent. More broadly, this funding benefits communities by establishing a pipeline of diverse and talented students prepared to join or rejoin the workforce.”
Students admitted into any of Goizueta’s graduate programs benefit from small-by-design program classes known for a collaborative culture and highly experiential learning model.
“Scholarships allow us to deliver on our promise of preparing principled leaders that positively influence business and society,” said Gareth James, John H. Harland Dean of Goizueta Business School. He added, “Equity is key. We’re committed to pursuing a business world where all people are included, and diversity is celebrated. There’s a wellspring of knowledge and innovation that can come from broadening perspectives and elevating voices that haven’t often been heard.”
While Goizueta has made substantial progress, the school has set even larger goals for the future, targeting to raise $160 million through Emory University’s 2O36 campaign.
