Dear alumni and friends,
Ninety years ago the School of Economics and Business Administration made its debut at Emory University. Today—after a few location changes and several name changes—Goizueta Business School stands tall, largely because the strength of our community remains constant.
In this collector’s edition of Goizueta Magazine we look back at many of the people who have helped shape our school. As we prepare to celebrate our ninetieth anniversary, we recognize the contributions of staff members Andrea Hershatter and Julie Barefoot, the late professor Art Dietz, alumnus John Spiegel 65MBA, and our outstanding corporate partner, The Coca-Cola Company.
We also look ahead at how our school will address key issues on the horizon, such as the future of business and the future of business education. As educators, our responsibility extends beyond discussing theory. We have a responsibility to maintain a dialogue with individuals and organizations that shape the environment. These conversations are both critical and beneficial.
As we reflect on ninety years, our long-term vision for Goizueta Business School as a world-class institution has not changed. We will continue to stay focused on developing business leaders through rigorous academics, resulting in quality graduates. However, staying the course will require continued commitment and support from all to ensure our students are the best they can be. I know we can count on you, our alumni and friends, to deliver as you have done for nearly a century!
