Diamonds in the Rough: Recruiting Strength at Emory’s Goizueta Business School

MBA applicants tend to overvalue rankings and so can overlook some strong business schools that might be a good fit. In this series, we profile amazing programs at schools that are typically ranked outside the top 15.

Named after late Coca-Cola CEO Roberto C. Goizueta, Emory University’s Goizueta Business School is deeply rooted in a legacy of global business leadership. Goizueta’s MBA program offers one- and two-year formats, strives to maintain an intimate learning environment and affords its students the benefits of being located in a significant global commercial hub. One of the notable advantages of the program has been its recent success in attracting recruiters, showing a 30% increase in on-campus recruiting in 2010 despite a challenging job market. In fact, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked Goizueta first for employment in 2012. The school’s recruiting strengths seem to be reflected in the latest career report as well—98% of students received job offers within three months of graduation and accepted positions with such major companies as Accenture, Bank of America, Deloitte, Delta, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, Johnson & Johnson, McKinsey & Company and SaraLee.
