The team-based structure forces interdependency and leveraging of talents and resources. The workload literally cannot be completed alone.
I think that the program could focus on improving the quality of incoming students by continuing to focus on raising the entrance requirements
Goizueta has a smaller more intimate program where you are able to build meaningful relationships with professors while making it through the program. Goizueta was very strong in finance and we had the Center for Alternative Investments with six classes, which is definitely unique among the B-schools that offer alternative investment curricula.
I'd like to see more focus on technology. We had one class that was technolgy-related. The wave of the future is in the technology space, so greater emphasis should be paid to this arena.
The amount of work is very extensive, so no one could call this as MBA light. I am extremely happy that Emory does not lower the bar just to cater more students. The quality of the teaching especially on Finance and Strategy are extraordinary.
One class, Advance Topics in Marketing, was taught by four professors. This fact resulted in a lecture that lacked cohesiveness and flow. It should have been one professor or two that teach as a team. Four is too many.
The rigor and caliber of professors and students really set Goizueta apart from other programs. I had an incredible experience.
Do not take candidates with no career plan. The GMAT waiver should be given to candidates who can write a report on a case study in three hour test. Every course must have a classroom test with certain portion of the grade assigned to it.
Traveling to Istanbul and Prague to meet and discuss business with leaders in the regions was one of my key takeaways from the program. In addition, the network that was cultivated during the program serves as my brain trust on many issues, not only business related.
The workload was not well balanced between terms, and often not well coordinated between classes.
Structure and coursework were designed to challenged existing paradigms. Positive impact on the way I approach people and problems. More aware of my personal strengths and weaknesses.
