Goizueta's Evening MBA program continues to grow stronger with a flexible format and geographically diverse cohort.

Goizueta Business School’s Evening MBA program consistently attracts working professionals looking to upskill, advance their career, or pivot on a part-time schedule. Applicants are attracted to the small class size, recognized faculty, flexibility of the delivery. And it doesn’t hurt that the Evening MBA program is regularly recognized as a top-ranked program. As part of their 2024 list, U.S. News & World Report placed it in the top 20 part-time programs in the nation.

“Year after year, our Evening MBA cohorts continue to impress, and this year’s class is no exception,” says Melissa Rapp, associate dean of graduate admissions. “We’re proud to be attracting the best of the best from right here in Georgia as well all over the United States. With our new flexible format options—online and in-person classes—our geographic diversity has increased and further strengthened the EvMBA program. We are really excited to see the impact of our Evening MBAs outside of Atlanta.”

This year’s Evening MBA class brought 103 students into the program, with women representing a third of the student body. Six countries are also represented. The combination of diverse backgrounds and varying career paths benefits the entire class by enriching the conversations and collaboration among the cohort with differing perspectives, opinions, and experiences.
