Brian Mitchell is as an Associate Dean at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School where he leads the Full-Time MBA Programs and Goizueta Global Strategy & Initiatives.  

Prior to joining Goizueta, Brian developed a remarkable 20-year career in the pharmaceutical industry where he held several leadership positions including all levels of brand management, Global Head of Strategic and Business Analysis and Managing Director for the Specialized Products business of Solvay Pharmaceuticals, Inc.  As the leader of the Specialized Products business, Brian oversaw a P&L that tripled, to over $600 million.  In 2010 Brian was among the members of the Solvay senior executive team who successfully exited when the company was sold for $6.2 billion, and subsequently was honored with Emory’s Alumni Achievement Award that same year.  After exiting Solvay, Brian joined Accenture as a leader in the Life Sciences Strategy practice before transitioning to the Goizueta leadership team.

Brian holds a BA in Business Administration with honors from Morehouse College; MBA and MPH from Emory University where he was honored with the Michael Lee Outstanding Student Award; and an Ed.M. in Higher Education from Harvard University where he attended as a Zuckerman Fellow in Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership and earned the Intellectual Contribution and Faculty Tribute Award from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

His commitment to education and global citizenship is reflected in his board service, as Brian serves as the treasurer of the Board of Directors for Wesley International Academy, a K-8 International Baccalaureate (IB) World Program School, and a member of the Board of Directors of the MBA Roundtable and the National Black MBA Association.

Brian and his wife, Leticia, live in Historic Old Fourth Ward with their three daughters, Ava, Lena, and Maya.
