The DC Advantage
Located at the intersection of business, government, and international relations, we are the premier destination for a global business education.
Located in the heart of our nation’s capital, Georgetown McDonough School of Business provides students and faculty with countless careers, connections, and cultural opportunities unique to Washington D.C. Founded in 1789, Georgetown’s ties to this global capitol city are almost as old as the city itself.
The university is only a walk away from the national monuments and the free museums that commemorate the rich history of the city, the country, and the world. Georgetown’s long-standing connections to capitol hill, government leaders, world class hospitals, the NIH, major business executives, a myriad of start-ups, and an emerging tech culture cater to a wide-array of academic and professional interests of students and faculty ranging from business, public policy, computer science, medicine, and more. The concentration of all of these renowned establishments and people brings many world leaders of every field through this beautiful city, often stopping at Georgetown on their trip to attend conferences, give talks, and recruit students.
In addition to world leaders, D.C’s access to many airports and close proximity to other major metropolitan cities, gives residents easy access to travel domestically and globally. It also attracts a diverse array of people, cultures, and perspectives through the city. The unequivocal combination of history, world class culture, boundless careers, diverse population, and a prestigious education has made Georgetown and Washington D.C a vibrant hub for young people to call home.
