One Day at a Time

One Day at A Time

Juggling work, school, and personal life is no easy feat, especially when joining one of the most competitive and highly regarded Evening MBA programs in the country. I won’t sugar coat it: there are days when you’ve got plenty of things to do from all realms of life and it feels like there is no way to possibly manage. That lingering feeling of impending doom is sometimes tough to knock. I can’t speak for your work and personal life, but I can speak about my experience with an Evening MBA program that may help you anticipate what to expect...

The Immeasurable Value of Community in an MBA Program

An MBA community and its values are essential for your success as a student. Goizueta’s diverse and supportive community makes it a top choice.   When evaluating a business school program, it’s absolutely essential to speak with current students and faculty. In fact, it’s usually part of the official recruiting process for most MBA programs and for good reason. Let me explain why. With any MBA program, you’re not only embarking on an educational journey: you’re committing to positive transformation. Through a curriculum with team projects, leadership workshops, recruiting with top companies, etc., you’ll be faced with brand new experiences...

Evening extras: How do I get involved at Goizueta?

Are extracurriculars available to evening students? Yes!

Building bonds and skills through case competition

Building bonds and skills through case competition

I just competed in my first case competition ever, it was virtual, and I had never met a single one of my teammates. Honestly, I don’t even know how to best structure that sentence in a logical way that truly captures the essence of this whole experience. To sum it up using adjectives—it was taxing, empowering, and unforgettable. Now, I had no idea what a case competition was before I entered business school, so I want to explain what it is first. (Feel free to skip this part if you are familiar with a case competition!) A case competition...

When I was considering pursuing my MBA in the evening program at Goizueta Business School, I knew I wanted to continue building my career while I worked towards my graduate degree in a part-time program.

Finding balance in the times of COVID-19 as a working professional student

Finding balance in the times of COVID-19 as a working professional student

My tenacious dilute kitten believes that I am possessed by the many screens my eyes stay fixated on throughout the day. Ever the hero, however, she attempts to save me from my trance throughout the day. Like Cobra Kai, she strikes the monitor on my desk and hurls it into the unassuming peace lily. While I sweep up the scattered dirt, she gets her opening to knock my phone and smartwatch off the coffee table and swipe them towards the dark underworld of stolen Christmas ornaments and hair bands behind the couch. I appreciate her trying to earn her...
