The Global Business Experience
Georgetown McDonough provides students the opportunity to travel abroad to consult either within an industry or with specific Fortune 500 companies. The program is required of most graduate students and is an elective for undergraduates. Working in small teams, students partner with executives from different organizations to address complex business challenges.
* Additionally, through career treks MBA students travel domestically and internationally to network and learn about specifics industries. Recent locations include Mexico, Tanzania, and Tel Aviv.
Partnership with the Walsh School of Foreign Service
Georgetown McDonough has partnered with the Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS), Georgetown’s premier school of international affairs, to prepare students for work at the intersection of international public and private sector activities.
Our undergraduate students can take advantage of the Dikran Izmirlian Program in Business & Global Affairs (BGA) and the Global Business Fellows program.
The Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service and McDonough School of Business offer a full-time, three-year program that leads to both MBA and Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) degrees. This dual program open only to full-time MBA students focuses on the global interdependence of business and government systems and is intended for students with strong interests in the relationship between foreign relations and global business.
