About Goizueta Business School

What Recent Grads Say See All 10 Comments >

The best thing about my MBA program is the community. We want to succeed both individually and collectively. This is most evident in our interview preparation where we share information and engage in mock interviews to get ourselves ready. If there are five positions at a firm and three students from Goizueta interviewing, we maintain the mentality that if we perform at our best, we'll all get an offer.
