Integrated Learning

Healy Hall

The McDonough School of Business is fortunate to be one of many great programs at Georgetown. Together, they enhance the university’s global reputation in areas like business, foreign service, public policy, law, medicine, and more.

McDonough students have numerous opportunities to learn about business through multiple lenses:

  • Undergraduate students can join students from the School of Foreign Service in a new integrated B.S. in Business and Global Affairs degree.
  • MBA students can enroll in four dual degree programs, including in foreign service, public policy, law, and medicine.
  • Programs like the Master of Arts in International Business and Policy are taught by professors from throughout the university, blending business, geopolitics, and more.

Additionally, faculty are encouraged to work across schools to develop new, interdisciplinary research and scholarship. For example, McDonough faculty have spent many years working with Georgetown’s Institute for Women, Peace, and Security to study whether the business model put forth by the Kate Spade On Purpose label is both sustainable and making a positive impact to women and communities in Africa.

The world’s most pressing issues — like artificial intelligence, climate change, cybersecurity, and global health — fall at the intersection of business and multiple disciplines. Georgetown McDonough graduates are equipped to tackle these challenges with the tools, techniques, and perspectives required in today’s global business world.
