Dear alumni and friends,
Leadership: It’s a word synonymous with Goizueta Business School—woven into our culture through our mission of educating principled leaders for global enterprise. Goizueta is a worldwide leader in business education thanks in part to those who have come before us: previous deans, faculty, staff, friends, and students who have maintained an unflagging commitment to academic excellence.
That leadership continues today throughout the Goizueta Business School community, demonstrated by the contributions many of you have made to Goizueta’s current campaign. These contributions play a crucial role in supporting and developing our faculty, students, and curriculum. Our faculty lead through teaching and research—training tomorrow’s business leaders and exploring new business frontiers—and it is imperative that Goizueta expand its number of endowed faculty chairs and professorships to attract and retain the best and brightest faculty. Our students are among the best in the country; to succeed as we compete with other business schools to recruit top-caliber applicants, we must continue to differentiate Goizueta from its peer schools. Our small size and tight-knit community are attractive to prospective students, but cost has become an increasingly important factor in their school decisions. To bring the best students to Goizueta, we must increase our need-based and merit scholarships in the BBA and MBA programs. Finally, our curriculum is both rigorous and innovative, and it must continue to evolve and adapt to the needs and interests of today’s students. Our Center for Alternative Investments and our Real Estate Program are campaign funding priorities, indicative of our drive to better educate leaders in those areas where Goizueta has the opportunity to be a thought leader.
We are just over halfway through the seven-and-a-half-year campaign, and we have raised slightly more than half of our $75 million goal. More than 6,000 alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations have participated to date. We thank you, and we hope that all will participate and continue to contribute over the remaining three years, as success requires the commitment of the entire Goizueta family. Your generosity is critically important to sustaining the excellence of our faculty, the quality of our student recruits, and the strength of our cutting-edge curriculum.
