Before being the university’s 2019 commencement speaker, Ambassador Andrew Young visited Goizueta in April as a guest of Professor Jeff Rosensweig to speak with students, faculty, staff and alumni as a Grant Distinguished Lecturer in the John Robson Program.

The civil rights icon met with Dean Erika James, then spoke to an MBA class comprising of 150 students, faculty and administrative leaders. Later in the day, Young was interviewed by CNN anchor Natalie Allen during Rosensweig’s BBA class of 65 undergraduates. In addition to the class sessions, Ambassador Young had lunch with several BBA and MBA student leaders, including members of the Black MBA Association.
