Print PagePrint Page

Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business will host Focus on Diversity – a day-long event celebrating diversity and inclusion at McDonough. This event targets prospective women, underrepresented minorities, LGBT students and military service members interested in business school programs.


Throughout the day, prospective Full-time and Evening MBA students have the opportunity to engage with current students, faculty, alumni, and staff to understand what it means to be a part of our tight-knit community. Among other activities, participants attend a mock MBA class, participate in focused-panel discussions featuring alumni and current students, and gain insight into the career and professional development activities and resources available to Georgetown MBA students.
