Edward Hobson Jr.

I came to Georgetown expecting to grow, but I was not expecting to be transformed! I joined MA-IBP with 22 years of experience, but I am now in my third growth role since Module 2. Learning from world-renowned experts in their fields created an environment where a passion for the intersection of international business and international relations became infectious. The bonds you form with your classmates over the course of one year will be stronger than ones built over several years with others. Georgetown truly provides a community, in addition to a life-changing learning experience.”
