A comprehensive and rigorous core curriculum taken in your first year provides you with a general management framework that is crucial for continued professional accomplishments. Beginning in the second semester of your first year and continuing throughout the duration of the program, you will tailor your coursework and further strengthen your professional skillset with specialized electives. Principled leadership and global readiness are themes woven throughout your entire experience. While completing your core courses, you take classes in a cohort of approximately 60-70 students. These courses are taken Monday through Thursday during the day. When you move into the elective portion of your curriculum, you are no longer in a cohort and your courses are on the day and time that you choose to schedule them.
Through complex coursework, experiential learning, and the case method, the Georgetown MBA curriculum inspires collaboration among both students and faculty.

After mastering 36 credits of core coursework, you will choose from more than 70 electives to customize your MBA experience.
