    Why Georgetown's Paul Almeida Is Cheering For Amazon's HQ2

    Paul Almeida is never done learning. It’s his hope that no one else is, either. For more than two decades, Almeida has served on the faculty at Georgetown’s business school, including as deputy dean for executive education, where he worked to develop innovative programs and conducted seminars with the likes of Microsoft, Gucci, Samsung, IBM and more. In 2017, Almeida was named dean of the McDonough School of Business. It’s a step that seems natural for a man who has spent a lifetime in Jesuit schools, focusing on an international view of business and the intersection of business and social change.

    B-School Deans Share 2018 Resolutions

    Paul Almeida, dean and William R. Berkley Chair at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, says that like individual vows to lose weight, quit smoking, or eat well, business schools’ vows “are about being better in the future.” The beginning of a new year is a time “to reflect a bit on our past and on the opportunities of the future,” he adds.
