MBA Evening Program Explores Virginia Expansion
Just as the business community within the Washington, D.C., region has seen growth in recent years, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business MBA Evening Program is exploring expansion opportunities to continue to meet the educational needs of local working professionals seeking an MBA.
The school announced today that it is exploring adding a new cohort of the program in Tysons Corner, Va., an area in the booming Northern Virginia region that offers a mix of prominent employers across industries, student interest, public transit, and development that will lead to additional business growth.
This expansion would benefit the school and university by growing the MBA student population while maintaining the same high quality of students and learning. It would bring the school and university in closer contact with the many large employers and entrepreneurs located in the Tysons area. Finally, this expansion would enable us to educate more students in the Georgetown tradition of service to business and society.
The school will continue to offer the MBA Evening Program on the Georgetown campus. By looking beyond the Hilltop, the school is able to expand its footprint without impacting the enrollment capacity of Georgetown’s D.C. campus, as well as reach a new audience of students who work or live outside of the District.
The school currently is exploring locations in Tysons Corner to host the program, which will take place Monday through Thursday evenings when classes are in session.
Launched in 2005, the MBA Evening Program has built a tradition of excellence. It was ranked No. 11 in the country by U.S. News & World Report in 2013 and boasts the sixth highest average GMAT score of any top part-time program in the country and the top average GMAT score in the Washington region.
