BusinessWeek ranks MBA program 23rd
The Full-Time MBA program at Goizueta Business School holds steady at No. 23 among the nation’s full-time MBA programs, according to BusinessWeek’s 2008 ranking of full-time MBA programs.

Goizueta rose from 17 to 16 in the student survey and from 36 to 30 in the recruiter survey. These improved scores allowed the business school to hold its number 23 ranking, amidst new competition from four schools not in the Top 30 in 2006.

“The data from the BusinessWeek ranking will be useful in helping us calibrate our strategy, while we continue to execute our vision,” said J.B. Kurish, associate dean of Goizueta’s Full-Time MBA program. “We implemented major improvements this fall, including a new Full-Time MBA curriculum and the pilot of a new leader development initiative. We also increased the involvement of business leaders at the school. What is going on at the school is exciting, positive and powerful.”
