The Full-time MBA Program at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business centers on student success. Our unique integrative core curriculum better prepares students for internships, jobs, and entrepreneurial endeavors. Students learn the analytical and persuasive skills needed to succeed in business and understand when to use them and how to evaluate their decisions ethically. Through our signature Global Business Experience, students gain hands-on experience and a global mindset that will last a lifetime.
Transformational Educational Experience
The new curriculum, launched in 2012, deepens our active commitment to educate principled, ethical leaders with a global mindset who are ready to serve business and society. This transformation starts with an opening term and an intensive course on the Structure of Global Industries. Students reexamine their understanding of global industries through the economic, political, and cultural factors that influence these arrangements. The course also integrates ethical decision making.
Service to Business and Society
Our MBA students develop the confidence and caring that is characteristic of all Hoyas, often stated in the Jesuit concept of cura personalis or "care of the whole person." Faculty members further this distinction, bringing their expertise and enthusiasm to every class they teach.
In addition to our world-class faculty, Georgetown McDonough hosts distinguished business executives, thought leaders, and policymakers for class sessions and university lectures. Our MBA students have unparalleled access to leaders in corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies. The reputation and location of Georgetown University in Washington, DC., positions our students to make an impact.
Global Approach and Mindset
Georgetown University pioneers the global approach to business education. For more than 15 years, our students have engaged in the Global Business Experience (formerly the Global Residency program). This signature MBA course empowers students to more fully understand how business is conducted around the world. Now, students complete consulting projects for international organizations in a greater number of locations and on more project topics. We share and celebrate this work at the end of the second year when students showcase their comprehensive understanding of the regional and cultural factors affecting a strategic topic.
