Paul Almeida Named Senior Associate Dean for Executive Education

January 11, 2011
Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business has appointed Paul Almeida as senior associate dean for executive degree and non-degree programs. Almeida, who assumed the position in September 2010, also is a 15 year veteran of the school’s faculty, serving as associate professor of strategy and international business.
In his new position, Almeida oversees the school’s Executive Education Programs, which consist of three master’s degree programs – the Executive MBA, the Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA, and the Executive Master’s in Leadership – as well as custom and open enrollment non-degree programs. He will focus on strategy, academics, public relations, and business development for the department.
Almeida’s involvement with the Executive Education programs at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business began in 1997 when he began teaching in the Executive MBA program. He has since served as academic director for Executive Education for several years and played a major role in launching several custom programs. Almeida is the co-founder and co-director of the Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA, an innovative new program that immerses students into the world of global business through six two-week modules on four continents.
“Executive Education at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business has great potential for growth and expansion,” Almeida says. “I am focusing on enhancing our degree offerings, building our client base for custom programs, and establishing open enrollment courses. With a talented and energetic new team in place, I am confident that the department will continue to be a leading resource for executives from Washington, D.C., and around the world.”
Almeida’s academic research focuses on innovation, knowledge management, alliances, and informal collaborations across firms and countries. He holds a Ph.D. from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
