The Joy of Working in a Learning Environment

One of the great joys of working in academia is that, throughout the year, I’m able to attend lectures where our faculty present research findings. Whether hearing them live or reading about their research via my Twitter feed, I’m reminded of all the ways our faculty bring fresh insights into the classroom.

Through their research and constant learning, they serve as bridges between the cutting edge of knowledge and the experiential learning that takes place in the Goizueta classroom.

They’re constantly pushing to stay ahead of the curve, not so much focused on “what’s new” but “what’s next” in the business world. Just as our Goizueta graduates are shaping tomorrow’s business world, our faculty research is shaping the coursework that will help students create that new, better reality.

Whether it’s through our rigorous core courses or electives in data analytics, we give our students the tools to solve vexing problems and also the confidence to communicate their results to others.

In just a few weeks, new students will join our community. And, thanks to their commitment to research, our faculty will bring new insights into the classroom, enabling our students to be fully prepared to add value to organizations and society.

“What 100 means to me…” Reflections from Staff and Faculty

Daniel McCarthy
Assistant Professor of Marketing

While we naturally tend to be caught up in the issues of today, our Centennial helps us take a step back, appreciate the long-lasting impact that the school has created so far, and motivate us to do what we can—or more—over the next 100 years. I am excited by research that will significantly impact how business is done—research with real-world implications.

“I constantly look for accessible ways to bring my research into the classroom, so that I can share high-impact findings with students and learn from their feedback. I’ve converted my research into case studies and more than half a dozen YouTube videos. I hope that over the next few years I can continue to add to this growing body of content to better serve the student body.

“Goizueta gives me the opportunity to pursue research that I love and help cultivate the next generation of business leaders. It’s hard to think of another job that would leave a person so blessed.”

No. 35: Rick Gilkey
Professor in the Practice of Organization & Management

Research often reveals truths obscured by what we consider conventional wisdom. Such is the case with Professor Rick Gilkey’s work. He found that it’s emotional and social intelligence—empathy included—that are “critically important… and [help people] make the most effective strategic business decisions.” Learn about his research, which isn’t as confounding as it is Copernican.
