Emory University’s Goizueta Business School has unveiled a new educational opportunity designed for graduates with non-business backgrounds: the Master in Management program. Designed to elevate the value of their undergraduate degrees by equipping them with essential business knowledge and skills, this program stands as a stepping stone for those seeking to broaden their career horizons.
Students complete a dynamic curriculum in just ten months, setting the stage for accelerated professional growth through a fast track for students to gain a valuable business education and expand their career options. With 12 of the 33 total course credits being electives, the program is customizable.
“The Master in Management program offers an innovative and flexible curriculum that equips recent graduates with the tools they need to leverage their passions and launch their careers,” shared Andrea Hershatter, Senior Associate Dean of Undergraduate Education at Goizueta, in the school’s official press release. “It bridges the gap between an undergraduate degree in liberal arts, science, or engineering and the skills needed to thrive in a business environment.”
The first semester focuses on fundamentals, such as accounting, finance, information systems/operations management, marketing, and organization and management. The second semester allows students to choose electives in their fields of interest, from media content to launching new ventures. The program culminates in an immersive, hands-on project where student teams join an organization to develop solutions for a complex, real-world problem.
The program also offers career development opportunities and expertise through competency assessments, goal setting, one-on-one career coaching, and interview prep.
Emory Goizueta joins several top business schools, including Chicago Booth, Northwestern Kellogg, MIT Sloan, and Stanford GSB, which have launched Master in Management programs in the last few years.
Applications are being accepted now for the fall 2024 program start at Goizueta. More information on the curriculum and how to apply can be found here.
