Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Goizueta has the smallest program size within top 20. The benefit from the interactions of professors, faculties, and classmates is beyond words. We also have first-class career management center which helps me prepare my interns in consulting very well. All the career coaches in finance, marketing, consulting, general management, and investment banking are experienced and really willing to share their time with you.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I am an international student at Goizueta Business School. The biggest benefit of Goizueta for me is that school's rigorous academics and focus on job placement has prepared me very well for the consulting jobs. Small class size of Goizueta enabled me to make more meaningful bonds with my class mates than other larger MBA programs.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Emory University is a fantastic program! The faculty members are fantastic and my classmates are wonderful! I have nothing but great things to say about this program. The surrounding area provides plenty of opportunities to balance social/school life. The cost of attendance is high which is the only con I can think of, but the education you will receive is worth it.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Emory University is a great school. The diversity and acceptance of so many different cultures, ethnicities, etc. is praiseworthy. The Public Health program here is widely revered and very prestigious. It's a fantastic school with a lot of resources, but unfortunately, you must be very wealthy or plan on going into a great deal of debt if you want to pursue your graduate degree here, as Emory University does not offer many financial aid options to graduates.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2014

What attracted me most about the Emory Neuroscience Graduate program is its reputation for excellence while still maintaining a collegial atmosphere. There are over 100 faculty that are part of the neuroscience program, ensuring that students have a wide variety of faculty to work with during their graduate career. The program overall is very supportive of student progress and success and also rewards faculty for excellent mentorship. Pros collaborative most students successfully obtain for federal grants (thanks to the required grant writing course) lots of resources for research program is supportive of student's desire to pursue non-academic careers (provides information about alternate careers via seminar series) Cons needs to better emphasize on the clinical trials masters/certification program available through the grad school should provide more training for teaching

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2014

Emory's willingness to invest in sustained, long-term liberal arts education for PhDs is, in the light of the past five years of program cuts, an open question. That said, the education in the field I received is of the highest caliber. But don't buy the university's overall aspirational hype - with the exception of the Psychoanalytic Studies Program and partnership with the Psychoanalytic Institute, and the Disabilities Studies programs associated with the (recently savaged by cuts) ILA, most of Emory's "Programs" and "Centers" are under-staffed, only one or two faculty deep, and woefully underfunded, existing mainly to project a veneer of "eminence" and neither funded nor respected by the administration enough. Although the LGS itself is full of excellent and well-meaning administrators, their best efforts are frequently and consistently hampered by an upper-level administration that is more fixated on prestige and rankings over long-term investment in scholarly research or in-class pedagogy. Meanwhile, adjunctification is steadily on the rise and faculty governance is broken and apathetic. Racial tensions on campus are also acute, and the constant PR appeals to diversity, ethical engagement with the Atlanta community, and educational outreach exist in staggeringly inverse proportion to actual on the ground realities. Emory may not be too different from other schools in this regard, but the gap between rhetoric and reality is striking even in our contemporary moment.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2020

It is hard to determine what the "pros and cons" of my program are since it is only my first year as a PhD. student. If anything, so far I think the Comparative Literature program at Emory is excellent. The staff, students, and professors are nice, supportive and encouraging. The material I've read is valuable and important. However, perhaps more support regarding accessibility to language studies would be more beneficial for students seeking to do work in French and German, especially. I would also add that more help to students moving from a different country to find a place and get settled in. I've spoken to a few students who moved from different countries that told me they had a very difficult time finding a place and getting settled and that, once they had arrived here, they very much felt as if they were "on their own" and alone. My moving experience was quite similar.
