Goizueta’s class of 2023 BBA graduates achieved remarkable success as they entered the workforce, securing employment positions with some of the nation’s leading companies.
“These graduates remain committed to pursuing opportunities they are passionate about in fields where they can make an immediate impact, while simultaneously achieving their leadership and academic goals,” says Sarah Leist, the director of employer relations at the BBA Career Management Center.
“What is so great about the Goizueta BBA curriculum is that it offers so much breadth,” says Andrea Hershatter, associate professor in the practice of organization and management and senior associate dean of undergraduate education. “While we equip our students to pursue desirable post-graduate opportunities, they are not locked into a particular function or industry. Our students have the knowledge and tools to follow many paths over the course of their careers and I’m always delighted to watch our alumni excel in unexpected ways!”
