Ambassadors Prepare MBA Students for Global Experience

February 01, 2012

On Thursday, February 2, 2012, Ambassador of Spain Jorge Dezcallar de Mazarredo and Ambassador of Vietnam Nguyen Quoc Cuong will address full-time MBA students at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. Their visits coincide with the students’ upcoming Global Experience, during which MBA students solve business problems in real-world consulting projects. The ambassadors will provide a political perspective and address current issues in their countries to help students gain in-depth knowledge about the country of their business client. 

The full-time MBA students will complete their consulting projects by the end of February and travel to the client’s country from March 3-10 to present their work to senior management. This year, students will travel in groups of 45 to Barcelona, HoChiMinh City, Tel Aviv, Dubai, Shanghai, and São Paulo. Once abroad, the students will hear from additional speakers. 
Each year, Georgetown McDonough student teams complete more than 100 consulting projects through Global Experiences in the Full-time MBA, MBA Evening, Executive MBA, and Executive Master’s in Leadership programs. The signature Global Experience provides consulting services to multinational organizations, small businesses, and companies with overseas operations, addressing a wide variety of business issues in marketing, strategy, finance, operations, and general management.
Organizations interested in establishing a Global Experience consulting project should contact Georgetown University alumni who work abroad are invited to attend networking events while student groups are in the host country or to sponsor a project with their organizations.
