Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2020

Confused by the various options available out there for an MBA these days? Maybe you're unsure how the MBA at Emory University can suit your needs. If you are looking for an MBA program located in one of the biggest hubs for job opportunities and you're willing to go the extra mile, the Emory University MBA program is right for you! You will get to know your class of fewer than 200 MBA students who are just like you - hard-working, driven, collaborative and friendly! At the end of your time at Emory, all of your professors and fellow classmates will know you, for better or for worse. That said, this is NOT the school for you if you simply want to "blend in" and if you have no desire to really connect with your peers. There are many opportunities to connect with your classmates. Aside from coursework, Goizueta Business School hosts networking events every Thursday which always have a great turnout. The positive culture of the student body really shows here, as these school-sponsored events (and even non-school sponsored events) always have a great turnout from students. Additionally, if you have a significant other (husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend) there are events designed specifically for them to come along as well, so that they don't feel left out! The ROI on your MBA at Emory is outstanding. Everybody gets a summer internship which can help with your living expenses during school as well as the potential for a full-time job offer post-graduation. Just about everyone will cross significantly north of six figures in terms of salary, which is likely to be a substantial jump depending on your industry. Cost of living in Atlanta is on the lower end for a top 20 business school, so that is another plus to take into consideration while attending.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

My overall experience at the school was alright. It would have been much more beneficial if the career component was made a part of the curriculum and early on such as some of the other Tier 1 Law schools have. The student body was not as diverse as I would have liked and there was constant need for mediation between the student body subgroups or even the various organizations and administration. The situation seems to even have escalated post-graduation. The teachers are well qualified, a few bordering on amazing, but the vast majority of the practical transactional courses are adjuncts, good if you're in that program, whereas the others are primarily scholars. Again, the practical component not as focused as one would like. I was quite disappointed that there wasn't more done to create a foundation for practical application of the law, rather it was focused on creating legal scholars yet paradoxically wanted most people to get into big law. Did I make the most of it regardless? You bet your bottom, Uncle Sam Student Loan, Dollar I did! Then again, that's more of a testament to the individual than the institution. If you're looking to go here really think about what kind of environment you want for 3 years of your life, name and prestige aren't all they're chalked up to be when you're having anxiety over being somewhere that doesn't even feel like you. That, and the law practice is not for the faint of heart. Best of luck!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2011

The school of public health at emory university provides an excellent foundation for their students. For epidemiologists, the core curriculum is methodologically sound and the elective choices are relatively diverse. The professors care for their students as much as their own personnal research (most have an open door policy). Outside of the classroom, there are ample opportunities for career development through seminars and networking events!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The quality of the professors and your classmates is excellent especially if you opt for one of the Executive MBA programs. The cohort is often just as knowledgeable and experts in other areas outside of business so you get exposure to a very diverse set of skills, backgrounds, and experiences.

The faculty are completed devoted to providing the best academic experience inside and outside the classroom. The campus life and quality of facilities only enhance the learning experience. The curriculum includes a West Coast Business Practices Immersion Trip focused on learning innovative business practices and an International trip.

Degree: Theology
Graduation Year: 2006

I attended Candler School of Theology at Emory University and it was the BEST decision I could have made in furthering my education. The professors offered challenging curiculum that taught me how to think and write critically. I also appreciated the diversity of the student population and opportunities to network. The campus is also absolutely beautiful. My only critique is the cost of tuition and the lack of scholarships available to students who are not United Methodist.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Overall, I believe I will be suited to be a decent practitioner upon graduation. I had not anticipated the hybrid mode of courses and had been looking forward to more in person education, but even the online courses have more or less been satisfactory. Some of the instructors are phenomenal, others have not been, so some classes have involved a lot of self directed study. Emory is a beautiful campus, I have met some wonderful people and made lifelong friends, and despite some struggles do not regret my decision to attend here.
