Why did you pick Goizueta? I was impressed by the domestic and international opportunities for experiential learning. I plan to be highly involved with the Social Enterprise @ Goizueta Center. Given Goizueta’s location in Atlanta, there are many opportunities to pursue school year internships. Goizueta also stood out as an intimate, diverse and collaborative environment. The school doesn’t just claim diversity but ACTUALLY is diverse from its leadership to its faculty and staff to its students (and is a part of the Consortium). I visited the school on several occasions and felt genuinely connected to the culture.
