Hello all. I’m currently in the first year of a business degree in London and have the option to spend the next academic year studying abroad in a variety of destinations worldwide. Am only really interested in the States and the two destinations available are: Emory University (Goizueta Business School), Atlanta University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Now I’ve spent a fair amount of time researching said universities via their respective websites but you can only learn so much from them. Anything to help me get a better feel for each university would be awesome as I’m obviously not in a position to visit them before I decide. It’s great to get a view of the schools from those in the US. From my initial research, Emory seems to have a burgeoning reputation in the US and the business school seems particularly highly ranked. UIUC seems better socially and being a 'Big 10' school the Athletics looks very impressive. As a huge sports fan that appeals to me a fair bit. They also have the Illini who I’ve followed for a few years now. Not sure how good the business department is though. Both schools would cost the same amount, as they are partner institutions with my home university it would only cost me my UK fees of just over £3000. If anyone has any information or opinions about the schools (+ business departments), reputations, areas, weather etc; anything relevant at all really, it would be hugely appreciated.
