Students going for 1 semester must complete a 1 - 2 page essay about your reasons and goals for studying abroad and submit a resume. If the program selected has more applicants than spaces, the host school will be contacted to see if additional spaces are available. If not, priority will be given to students with the strongest academic record at Goizueta.
An on-line application
requesting school selections and passport information must be completed for all applicants.
Initial applications for the next semester abroad are due no later than Goizueta's registration for that semester. Later applications will be reviewed if they meet the individual school deadlines and there is space available.
Student attending for a full semester receive the equivalent of a semester at Goizueta - 15 credits. Others are evaluated by the ECTS system. One 3 credit course at Goizueta is 6 ECTS. Any required courses (leadership or MSM) are waived for students abroad. If the school is on "quarters," you will receive 12 Goizueta credits and may need another course to finish your degree requirements at Emory.
Grading is done by the school issuing the transcript. For most study abroad options, this is the host school. If the host school issues a transcript, then the Emory transcript will show the credits as Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory. To show your complete academic history for your MBA, you will need transcripts from each school that issues grades. You must have your official transcripts sent to Emory to receive credit.
For Semester Abroad, tuition and living expenses are based on Emory's budget. If the cost of living is higher at the host school, students may apply for a budget adjustment with appropriate documentation. Also, travel expenses may qualify for a budget adjustment. Tuition and scholarships remain the same as students pay Emory for those.
There is one scholarship awarded to students who are studying abroad: the Paul Rosensweig Global Exchange Fellowship. Brochures are available from the MBA Program Office. The applications are due in April.
