Overview:Committed to courageous leadership in teaching, research, scholarship, health care, and social action, Emory University is recognized as one of the world’s great institutions of higher learning. It combines nine undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools with Emory Healthcare, a comprehensive health care system that puts cutting-edge interventional research and technology into lifesaving action. Emory is one of the leading private research universities in the U.S.
Emory’s Atlanta campus, in the suburban neighborhood of Druid Hills, is just 15 minutes from downtown Atlanta; 20 percent of Emory undergraduates begin their education at Oxford College, Emory’s historic 1836 campus, 38 miles east.
Today Emory has its base in Atlanta, the business hub of the Southeast and an exciting global city—home to ten Fortune 500 companies (third-highest in the nation, tied with Dallas). The city connects Emory to opportunities for wider networking, jobs, research, service, and learning. A population of more than five million makes the metro area rich with a mix of diverse cultures, entertainment, and the arts. Through partnerships--with Grady, the CDC, Georgia Tech and others, Emory’s creates improved quality of life in Georgia. It is the third largest private employer in metro Atlanta with 27,747 employees, including approximately 3,600 faculty members.
With an Emory degree, Emory students go on to choice graduate and professional schools and find meaningful jobs.
