With two international residencies, classes taught in cohorts, and experienced faculty who are leaders in their respective fields. the Georgetown Executive MBA offers a world-class business education in a schedule designed for busy executives.


At Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, we seek individuals who endeavor to enrich the business environment and who also possess diversity in every sense of the word: gender, age, ethnicity, variety of industry and job function, and geographic location.

Applicants to Georgetown’s Executive MBA (EMBA) Program are required to hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university in the United States or the equivalent from an international college or university. A business background is not required; however, all applicants should demonstrate high potential for leadership.

Additionally, applicants to our EMBA Program must possess a minimum of eight years of work experience and are required to submit for review a resume, a statement of purpose, two letters of recommendation, a letter of support from their current employer, and official transcripts from all academic course work.  EMBA applicants also are required to interview with a member of the Admissions Committee.

We operate on a rolling admissions basis.  Applicants may submit their admissions materials at any time before the final deadline. Those who submit a complete application will be considered for a personal interview, and decisions are sent on a rolling basis. The following materials are necessary to complete the application process:

  • Online application form
  • Current resume
  • Personal statement
  • Non-refundable application fee ($175)
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Letter of support from current employer
  • Official academic transcripts (officially translated, if not in English)
  • Official TOEFL or IELTS score, for non-native English speakers
  • Interview (by invitation after receipt of completed application)
  • Other demonstration of capacity to succeed in demanding graduate studies
