The Goizueta Business School Office of MBA Admissions is proud to announce the formation of the Goizueta Hispanic/Latino Student Recruitment Advisory Board. The Advisory Board will provide Goizueta important thought leadership on recruiting and enrolling Hispanic/Latino professionals across MBA programs. A grant from the Goizueta Foundation helps to fund this initiative.
Goizueta champions diversity and all it has to offer. Not only is diversity one of the school’s core values, but as a top business school, Goizueta believes strongly that a diverse community fuels better business results by combining multiple perspectives into valuable insight.
“Goizueta Business School strives to uphold the principles of the school’s namesake, Mr. Roberto C. Goizueta, by championing diversity and excellence in education,” says Rebbecca Kaplan, assistant director of MBA Admissions and manager of Hispanic student recruitment. “To this end, the Goizueta Hispanic/Latino Student Recruiting Advisory Board will harness the talent of local business and non-profit leaders, to assist the School in identifying new opportunities to expand our presence in the community and enroll more Latino students across our nationally ranked MBA programs.”
The Advisory Board held its inaugural meeting in July and has plans for an active year. Most recently the Goizueta Foundation Scholars and Alumni Reunion was held to bring together past and current recipients of the Goizueta Foundation Scholarship. The scholarship is intended to broaden educational opportunities for college-going Hispanic students in the state of Georgia. The Board helped plan the event and several members attended and engaged with students, speaking on behalf of the Goizueta MBA programs.
Members of the Advisory Board represent various leadership positions from area corporations and non-profits, including Sun Trust, AT&T, UPS, the Latin American Association, and INROADS, among other organizations. Goizueta Business School is honored to welcome these leaders as the inaugural members of the Goizueta Hispanic/Latino Student Recruitment Advisory Board, as they bring many years of meaningful experience, leadership, and insight to the table.
