Collection Description

Administrative History

On February 18, 1919, the Dean of Emory College recommended the creation of a school of economics and business administration to the Board of Trustees. The purpose of the school was public service, training in business methods, and “training in social efficiency alongside financial development.” In the fall of 1919, the school began offering courses in economics, accounting, and business law. By 1925, there was one faculty member and full-time assistant, five staff members and 145 students. The business school moved to its home in the C. L. Fishburne building in 1936.

In 1949, the business school was admitted to the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business. Five years later, in 1954, the Masters of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program was begun. This was followed by the creation of an evening M.B.A program in 1961.

Throughout the 1970s and 1980s the school continued to grow. The Executive M.B.A program was created in 1979, along with a joint degree program with the Emory School of Law that allowed enrollees to complete both the M.B.A and juris doctor degree in four years. In 1994, the school was renamed for Roberto C. Goizueta, a much-admired and successful business leader who served as Chief Executive Officer of the Coca Cola Company from 1981 until his death in 1997.
