What Alumni Say About Georgetown Faculty 

The faculty was one of the strongest aspects of the program. The effort that the faculty put into instructing their respective courses and their interest in ensuring that we learned the content of the courses and could effectively apply this new knowledge was clearly evident and appreciated by me.

Francine Hope-Pressley, EMBA’17

Several of the professors were simply amazing. In several instances I wished the courses could have been longer because the class was so good.

Meghan Gound, EMBA’17

Exceptional professors such as Almeida, Dahiya, Kamrad, Macher, Miller, Mayo, Nolan, and more truly helped expand my thinking.

Judy Robinson, EMBA’17

The Georgetown staff was extremely supportive, and the faculty was world-class. I particularly enjoyed the Negotiations class with Professor Catherine Tinsley. It’s a skill I use all the time!
