Goizueta Business School
Alumni and friends who invest in business education at Emory help shape the future of one of the nation’s top business schools and build on the legacy of Roberto C. Goizueta. “Without integrity, no other personal quality has much value,” he once said, a simple truth at the heart of Goizueta Business School. “Business schools today cannot just reflect business the way it is. They must teach business the way it will be.”
Goizueta is committed to delivering the leadership the world needs. Its mission—developing principled leaders for global enterprise—emphasizes the value of ethics, diversity, and commitment to the world community. Students come here for outstanding academics and to learn from some of the world’s most noted faculty members, explore their own values, develop strong leadership skills, and leave a mark that becomes part of Goizueta’s legacy.
Dean’s 2013 Priorities
Philanthropy at Goizueta Business School continues to advance the intimate learning environment, says Dean Larry Benveniste, who prioritizes the following five areas of meaningful investment in 2013:
Build the endowment. Goizueta’s endowment of approximately $100 million is about half that of other top-20 business schools. Adding to that financial foundation bolsters long-term stability.
Increase overall scholarship funding. Scholarships and student financial support play a critical role in bringing the best and brightest students from around the country to Goizueta. The school’s student population is smaller than those of peer schools, but its strength will continue to grow.
Generate support for programming and centers of excellence. New ways of developing leadership, entrepreneurship, and ethics set the business school apart from peer institutions. Innovative curricula and programs produce forward-thinking leaders for evolving industries.
Create additional endowed chairs. Donor gifts create and fund faculty chairs and professorships, which help Goizueta attract and retain scholars of the highest caliber. Internationally distinguished scholars lead students and younger faculty to their full potential.
Increase annual giving. Increasing annual giving support for Goizueta Business School to $2 million annually will provide greater resources and flexibility to address critical issues as they arise.
