The BBA program provides an integrated undergraduate education, consisting of a liberal arts foundation, a core business curriculum and a highly flexible set of electives. Enter Emory College as first-year student and apply to Goizueta Business School once you have achieved junior standing.
The Goizueta Scholars award will support four years of undergraduate study, including study-abroad options and will range from two-thirds of full tuition to full tuition and fees. As a Goizueta Scholar, you will have guaranteed admission to the business school and priority access to business classes. You will have the opportunity to enroll in special freshman and sophomore business scholar seminars, to participate in an extensive array of leadership and professional activities and to interact with some of the most admired business executives in the world. Additionally, scholars will advised personally by the dean of the BBA program and given access to a wide variety of ongoing Goizueta resources, including internships, mentoring and other career services.
In addition to having superior academic credentials, successful nominees will have a demonstrated interest in business, as evidenced by engagement in entrepreneurial activities; participation in internships; membership in business clubs and/or involvement in business-related conferences, competitions and similar offerings. Leadership and community service are also important components in the selection process and candidates who bring diverse perspectives and backgrounds are of special interest.
To be considered for an academic scholarship, students must be nominated by an appropriate high school official, normally the college counselor. Nomination forms are available online at www.emory.edu/admission in the early fall. Secondary schools may nominate up to four of their most outstanding students for the Emory Scholars process and one student for the Goizueta Scholars process. Students can be nominated for both Emory Scholars and Goizueta Scholars.
The nomination form, scholar essay, scholar recommendation and all admission application materials must be submitted by November 15 of your senior year. Though the submission deadline is in November, the application is not a binding, early decision application.
You may apply to Emory as a Goizueta Scholar nominee and as an early decision candidate, but if attendance at Emory is contingent upon receiving a merit scholarship, do not apply as an early decision candidate. Goizueta Scholar selections do not occur until early April and early decision applicants have to pay their binding deposits in January or February.
The Goizueta Scholars committee will choose fifty applicants who will learn of their admission decision and selection as semifinalists in January. Approximately ten finalists will interview at Emory in early March.
Finalist interviews for Emory Scholars take place in mid-March. If you are a finalist, you will be brought to Emory (at no expense to you) for activities designed to help you become better acquainted with programs and opportunities at Emory and to aid the Goizueta Scholars Selection Committee in making its final choices for the various awards. Attendance is mandatory for all scholar finalists.

“I chose Emory because of its outstanding undergraduate business program. The emphasis on community in the business school stood out, and I liked that Emory has General Education Requirements so I could explore a variety of arts and sciences classes as well.
“I am so grateful for the advice and guidance that has come from Goizueta. Because Emory is a smaller school, developing close relationships with advisers, teachers and administrators is much easier. I also like the emphasis on building teamwork skills.”
