Executive MBA

Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business offers a world-class, top-ranking Executive MBA (EMBA) characterized by two international and two domestic residencies. EMBA classes are taught in cohorts designed to strengthen interpersonal relationships and sharpen business acumen, and a format that accommodates the busy schedule of today’s fast-paced executive.

The program begins in August and spans 20 months, culminating with the Global Capstone Residency, during which teams of students travel the world to study the impact of globalization at the country, industry, and firm levels. Afterward, the teams present their findings during a Capstone Weekend that highlights the school’s themes of globalization, collaboration, and integration of knowledge.

Our classes are led by experienced faculty who offer practical and applicable knowledge and are equally committed to students as mentors beyond the classroom. EMBA students represent a wide range of industries and functional areas. Global in nature, the EMBA curriculum integrates all functional business areas, and incorporates two international consulting projects. It also capitalizes on our location by providing a world view that can only be derived from Georgetown’s access to the key institutions and leaders in Washington, D.C.- the epicenter of global business and policy.

The dynamic curriculum for Georgetown’s EMBA continually evolves to keep our students challenged and engaged. Our executive development resources enhance the curricular offerings to provide a transformational personal and professional experience for students.
