Emory is consistenly named one of the top schools in the nation and with good reason. The school is full of nationally and even globally acclaimed professors who are experts in their fields. Many have even authored textbooks, which they humbly use in their classes. Other than introductary classes, class sizes are typically smaller than 20 or so, allowing for students to make lasting connections with their professors. The Emory email software, LearnLink, allows for easy communications between professors and students, as well as students and their peers.

Emory is privileged to have one of the largest university endowments in the nation, and this also allows for the University to improve upon and expand its academics. Emory's public health and business schools are both ranked in the Top 5 nationally and are respected by many in and outside of Emory. Atlanta has plenty of opportunities for graduating students, and Emory takes full advantage of this by holding various networking events throughout the school year. Emory's presitgious reputation, its nationally respected education, and its prime location allow for students to earn a highly reputable degree that will likely give them advantages once they are graduates of this fine institution.
