Goizueta Business School Gets High Marks from Corporate Recruiters;
Wall Street Journal Calls Goizueta a "Hidden Gem"

The Goizueta Business School at Emory University ranks number 19 in the Wall Street Journal's (WSJ) first survey of MBA recruiters.

The WSJ rankings are based on a survey conducted last fall in which 1,600 recruiters rated schools they knew from firsthand experience. Each school was rated on 27 factors that influence a recruiter's decision to visit a campus and to hire its graduates, including the career management office, the core curriculum, and students‚ leadership potential and leadership skills.

Recruiters gave Goizueta Business School strong ratings for its past success with graduates. Goizueta students received high scores for interpersonal skills and their ability to drive results and fit with the corporate culture.

"Our ultimate client is the business community," said Dean Tom Robertson, Goizueta Business School. "We are judged every day by how much value our students, faculty and staff contribute to the productivity of the world of business. It is rewarding to see that corporate recruiters consider Goizueta Business School as an important source for managerial talent."

In specialty categories, The WSJ ranked Goizueta Business School number four among "hidden gems"—less-heralded schools whose graduates sparkle. The school also captured the number four spot based on past success with quality of graduates hired and number nine in overall value.

"[Goizueta Business School] doesn't have the status or high profile of the Northeast and West Coast business schools, but it's really a top-caliber program," said Kenneth Yuan, a senior consultant at Deloitte Consulting. "I especially like its small, collegial environment," he said.

The Goizueta Business School teaches students to become leaders who not only create value for their organizations, but who also improve society. Founded in 1919, the school is home to five degree programs: a full-time MBA program, a 12-month MBA program, an executive MBA program, an evening MBA program and an undergraduate program; together with a set of innovative non-degree executive education programs. The school takes as its mission the education of principled entrepreneurial leaders for global enterprise.
