MBAs Present Results of Global Consulting Projects Related to Social Enterprise

April 24, 2012
Georgetown McDonough School of Business MBA students discussed the impact of their Global Experience projects related to social enterprises in Spain, China, Brazil, Israel, UAE, and Vietnam, in the Fisher Colloquium on April 9 at the Social Impact Showcase. The projects ranged from market-entry strategies for fair-trade coffee brands to detailed road maps for public-private partnerships to maximize their social and economic impact. The discussion panel was moderated by Professor Ricardo Ernst.
 
The Global Experience is required for all Georgetown McDonough MBA students. Students work in small teams and partner with executives from multinational companies and organizations to address complex business challenges. Students spend seven weeks on campus applying strategic business and analytical skills to develop solutions for their client. The experience culminates with a week-long international trip to present recommendations to senior leadership.
