GLobal Business Initiative
As part of a pilot program to provide undergraduate students with global business experience, a new elective course at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business recently took a group of 20 students to Barcelona, Spain, to meet with global confectionery industry leaders and make recommendations on the future of the industry for four international companies.
The McDonough School of Business signed an agreement in December 2013 with Effat University, an all-women’s university in Saudia Arabia. The partnership provides accreditation, assessment, and curricular advice for their undergraduate program in the college of business. Prince Turki Al Faisal, a Georgetown alumnus and former ambassador for Saudi Arabia, is on their board of trustees, since his mother Queen Effat founded the school. His sister Princess Lolowah Al Faisal Al Saud is vice chair of Effat’s board of trustees.
