Goizueta Business School continues to expand academic and co-curricular offerings with personalized experiences that prepare students to drive toward the future of business. With a focus on equipping the next generation of principled leaders to positively influence business and society, this year, Goizueta launched new courses and robust opportunities across program areas, including expanded online offerings in the Evening and Executive MBA.
Decision Tools and Data Analytics (BUS 350)
Led by Associate Professor in the Practice of Information Systems & Operations Management Wen Gu, this new data analytics-focused course teaches undergraduate students how to manipulate and analyze data. Students learn how to gain managerial insights for decision-making in a business context, using real-world data from various industries. Students gain the knowledge and skills required to utilize various tech tools, such as Microsoft Excel and Python, that are commonly used in business analytics today.
Accounting: The Language of Business (ACT 200)
Referred to as “the language of business,” proper accounting helps companies measure, analyze, and report financial and nonfinancial information to plan, communicate, and implement strategic goals and evaluate and control performance. Students will use real data to learn how to identify and measure costs and benefits for decision-making, allocate economic resources, analyze business transactions, and interpret financial statements, among other skills. This course is taught by Allison Kays, assistant professor in the practice of accounting, and Jianxin (Donny) Zhao, assistant professor of Accounting.
Ideation (MKT 441)
Although Ideation isn’t a new class at Goizueta, it is being reimagined this fall. The course is taught by leaders at BrightHouse, a company founded by Joey Reiman, who has taught this course since it was created. The new team of instructors includes Cathy Carlisi, president; Dolly Meese 05MBA, managing director and chief strategy officer; and Ashley Grice 97MPH 03MBA, CEO and managing director. The course teaches students how to understand and uncover purpose, defined as the idea of why an organization exists in the world, as well as the positive impact it seeks to make. Students will examine the intersection of ideas and how they’re brought to life, as practiced in the world’s first ideation consulting company.
Master of Analytical Finance
Goizueta’s Master of Analytical Finance degree program launched this fall with an impressive, immersive Finance Lab as the program’s hub. As part of the accelerated, internship-style 10-month STEM degree, students are based in a professional trading environment, experiencing the pace of global markets in real time. This “on the job training” allows students to act as analysts, using real market data and trading platforms to model, trade, and collaborate with industry professionals in a “Wall Street” setting. The program is designed to prepare the next generation of finance careers in areas such as sales and trading, investment management, fintech, consulting, risk, and hedge funds.

Students build a foundational understanding of artificial intelligence and machine learning concepts through this non-technical, interactive course led by Jesse Bockstedt, professor of Information Systems & Operation Management.
