Executive MBA program gets Top 10 ranking
The Goizueta Business School’s Executive MBA program has been ranked in the top 10 nationally by three leading publications: Business Week (No. 8), The Financial Times (No. 9) and U.S. News & World Report (which ranked the program No. 10).

“It really is a huge accomplishment that our program has been cited in all three of the major rankings publications as a top 10 program,” said David Hanson, associate director of admissions for the EMBA program. “We are very excited about this program and its future.”

The Financial Times, in its Oct. 22 issue, also ranked Goizueta as a top U.S. business school for research, salaries and “most experienced intake” of students, Hanson said, and Business Week cited the EMBA’s independent study option as a valuable part of the program.


Program on population growth, Nov. 15
The Department of Environmental Studies and the Sierra Club are co-hosting a talk by Werner Fornos, director of the nonprofit The Population Institute, on Thursday, Nov. 15, at 6:30 p.m. in Winship Ballroom.

Established in 1969, the institute seeks to reduce excessive population growth and achieve a world population in balance with a healthy global environment and resource base. It has members in 172 countries and is headquartered in Washington.

Fornos’ talk will be followed by a panel discussion including demographer Kathryn Yount and economist Rick Reinghans, both from the Rollins School of Public Health; conservation biologist Sonia Altizer from environmental studies; and John Sitter from the English department.


In last week's issue, Emory Report reported that James Flannery, Winship Professor of Arts and Humanities, received his bachelor's and doctorate from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn. Flannery actually earned his doctorate from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.
