As reported by Poets & Quants, "For the second consecutive year, Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business boasted the best MBA placement record of any U.S. business school in the Top 30, with 98.1 percent of the Class of 2013 reporting job offers three months after graduation."

"Our career success is due, in large part, to our high caliber student population. We are pleased that Goizueta MBAs continue to be sought after by the world’s best companies," says Wendy Tsung, associate dean & executive director of Goizueta’s MBA Career Management Center (CMC).

Goizueta’s CMC partners with students early in the course of their MBA experience, starting even before they arrive on campus. The team is staffed by a director, four full-time career coaches, and two employer relations staffers, an office manager and recruiting coordinator. Their dedication to offer students access to top companies is matched by a commitment to prepare students for every stage of the job search process.

"Since the school revamped its curriculum so that the core is taught in the first semester, students with full-time offers at the end of their internships have more than doubled. The early start, the one-semester core, the early outreach by the career staff along with their close follow-up has made a huge difference in the school’s outcomes," reports Poets & Quants.
