Goizueta Business School, established in 1919, is the private business school of Emory University, located in the historic Druid Hills neighbourhood in unincorporated Dekalb County in the US state of Georgia, near Atlanta.
The school accepted its first female student in 1954, in the same year of the first MBA programme, with 19 students. The current name was adopted in 1994 after the CEO of The Coca-Cola Company Roberto Goizueta.
The Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Goizueta is a two-year programme designed for students who have spent at least a year at Emory University or Oxford College.
The Master of Business Administration includes various options, including full-time one- and two-year programmes, evening and executive. All applicants must have completed the GMAT.
Goizueta also offers a range of non-degree based executive education and development programmes, which have the option of being customised for a specific organisation.
The Goizueta Foundation Centre for Research and Doctoral Education was opened in 2005 as 90,000 square feet for PhD students, Executive MBA classrooms, the MBA Career Management Center, and conference and breakout rooms. Housed throughout the centre is The Balser Art Collection, which includes works by Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.
Other research centres at Goizueta include the Social Enterprise Center, the Marketing Analytics Center and the Emory Center for Alternative Investments.
