Who says a museum needs to be quiet? Shake it up with Atlanta's perfect mix of culture and cocktails!

Often replicated, but never duplicated, Martinis & IMAX® offers a unique alternative to the "so last year" bar scene. Join us on Friday, June 15th from 6:30pm to 11pm for music, a full bar featuring signature cocktails, tasty nibbles prepared to order and cap off the evening with a flick on the biggest screen in town in Fernbank's IMAX® Theatre. We’ll have a special area for EMBA Alumni to gather prior to the show. Tickets are $12 and include movie admission or $7 if only coming for the social.


Purchase tickets online or by calling 404.929.6400.

More about MedShare


In 1998, A.B. Short and Bob Freeman were concerned with the critical healthcare needs of the underserved populations throughout the world and the environmental threat of discarded medical supplies and equipment. To act on these issues, MedShare was born. A.B. Short has been a long-time friend of GSU’s EMBA program speaking in the Leadership Forum and inspiring students as a serial non-profit entrepreneur.


MedShare is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving healthcare and the environment through the efficient recovery and redistribution of the surplus of medical supplies and equipment to those most in need. They collect surplus medical supplies and equipment from hospitals, distributors and manufacturers, and then redistribute them to qualified healthcare facilities in the developing world. They also outfit medical missions and safety net clinics in both the U.S. and abroad.


Each volunteer group is briefed on the organization and their mission before being divided into teams to sort and package medical supplies. You’ll fall in love with their mission and leave enriched by the experience of helping such a worthy organization.



EMBA 30th Anniversay

posted May 11, 2012, 3:19 AM by EMBA Alumni Administrator   [ updated Jun 8, 2012, 8:09 AM ]

Flashback to 1980, when newspapers arrived on doorsteps, Reaganomics was about to take on stagflation, and big business spent the bulk of its focus on national growth. Fast forward to 2012, when newspapers often land in the inboxes of smartphones, institutions are digging out of the deepest and most widespread financial crisis of the century, and business has become global in scope.

For more than three decades, the Executive MBA program at the Robinson College of Business has kept pace with rapid changes, giving motivated leaders the vision and skills to master whatever twists and turns business has taken. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Robinson College’s first Executive MBA graduating class, and it’s time to celebrate.

Mirroring the EMBA’s fast-paced curriculum, a flurry of activities will allow you to take part in the celebration and reconnect with alumni, faculty and friends.
Join us to look back not only at where we’ve been but also at what’s to come in the next 30 years of business innovation.

Château Élan Golf and Winery in Braselton, Georgia
Shotgun 1 p.m. | Dinner 7 p.m.

For a decade, EMBA golfers have gathered on the green to support the Executive MBA Program’s alumni club and enjoy a round with former classmates. This year’s event is especiallysignificant, marking two anniversaries—the tenth anniversary of that first golf tournament and the 30th anniversary of the EMBA program.

In typical Robinson College EMBA style, the benefits of the tournament will extend well beyond the competition on the course and the camaraderie at dinner. Partnership and sponsorship opportunities during the tournament will support undergraduates who wish to expand their international business savvy with study abroad. You can make that happen.
