Life After Georgetown McDonough

Print PagePrint Page

Georgetown MBAs can play a vital role within the McDonough community beyond graduation. MBA alumni have the opportunity to offer mentorship and insight to current students while also taking advantage of the scope of networking opportunities and lifelong career development services available through the MBA Career Center.

Once a Hoya, always a Hoya. Full-Time MBA, MBA Evening Program, Executive MBA, and Global Executive MBA alumni have access to a wide range of continued services and opportunities including networking, job postings, and professional development alumni events.

Lifelong MBA Career Guidance
The MBA Career Center is proud to support complimentary lifelong alumni career services. Our dedicated certified career management coach, Diana Banks, provides situational support, helping alumni to clarify goals, utilize available resources, and strategize next steps. 

MBA Alumni Career Coaching: What to Expect
For those alumni unclear on their target industries, we offer clarification coaching as a first step for determining target industries. The alumnus and coach will arrange a conversation (by phone, Skype, or in-person) to discuss goals and available resources.

Based on career objectives, the alumnus and coach will create a plan for next steps. Topics for session(s) could include any of the following: resume and cover letter reviews, target company strategy, networking plan, mock interviews, job search strategy, LinkedIn Profile reviews, and offer negotiation.

How to Connect with a Career Coach:
If you are interested in a career coaching session, please email us at with the subject "Alumni Career Coaching" and include the following:

  • Full name
  • Email address
