Designed for highly accomplished executives seeking an advanced business degree with a global emphasis, Georgetown's Executive Degree Programs provide three options to meet the differing needs of today's working professionals.

Choosing a Program

Georgetown McDonough’s Executive Education programs create world leaders. Our programs cater to the lifestyle and learning style of busy professionals, providing an advanced business degree with a global emphasis.

All Executive Degree programs are taught by professors who are academic and industry leaders. Most programs feature international consulting projects that immerse students into business cultures around the globe.

As part of the Georgetown community, students are connected to peers, professors, professionals and alumni — a valuable network that is characteristic of all of Georgetown University’s programs. The result is a transformational experience — on both a professional and personal level.

Executive MBA
Georgetown University’s Executive MBA (EMBA) is a 20-month program that concentrates on quantitative, analytical, and core business disciplines with a global focus. Students attend classes every other Friday and Saturday and participate in four week-long residencies. The EMBA Program is designed for full-time professionals with significant professional experience.

Executive Master’s in Leadership
Georgetown's Executive Master's in Leadership (EML) is a distinctive graduate business degree that is designed to challenge and inspire executives from the business, government, and not-for-profit sectors as they study organizational leadership. This 13-month program integrates leadership perspectives from multiple disciplines and teaches students to become more creative leaders capable of producing positive change in their workplaces. EML students learn to anticipate how the future is likely to unfold, assess their organization's desired position, develop tools and strategies to implement change, and influence others to join in advancing towards successful outcomes. The EML cohort participates in a Global Residency that integrates and applies classroom learning to a real leadership problem in an international setting, and each student completes a Master's Project as the capstone of the program.

Corporate International Master's
The Corporate International Master’s program is a blended learning experience, designed for experienced professionals who want to understand the key to successfully doing business in China, Europe, Latin America, and the United States. Upon completion of this 16-month program, students receive diplomas from ESADE Business School, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, and EBAPE/FGV.

Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA
The Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) combines the strengths of three world-class graduate schools: the expertise in international business of ESADE Business School, the recognized leadership in the field of international relations of Georgetown's Walsh School of Foreign Service, and the proven experience in global residencies and interdisciplinary teaching of Georgetown's McDonough School of Business. 

The program is specifically designed to accommodate executives with demanding professional lives. Delivered in a modular format over 14 months, the six 12-day modules take place in the commercial centers of Spain, Latin America, the United States, and India or China. Every module immerses students in the complexities of global business, integrating coursework with real-world, real-time challenges presented by faculty and working business executives.

Master of Science in Finance
The Master of Science in Finance online program transforms students into recognized leaders in the finance profession, no matter where they are in the world. The program is Georgetown McDonough’s first-ever online degree program and spans 17 months.
