The One-Year MBA program at Goizueta Business School has been named among the Top 10 in the nation according to Find-MBA.com, a site dedicated to informing prospective students of the best MBA experiences and application tactics.
“Students in Emory’s one-year MBA, which launched in 1983, start in May with a ‘summer experience,'” writes Find-MBA.com, “which includes a boot camp-like foray into core business topics like accounting, economics, statistics, and even an Excel review. In the fall and spring semesters, students delve into specific topics through elective courses.”
The site’s top-10 lists are editorial in nature, compiling employment data, concentrations, existing rankings, diversity and student reports.
