MA-IBP Student Experience

MA-IBP Cohorts

The Master of Arts in International Business and Policy (MA-IBP) cohort structure allows students to build a shared interactive learning experience that emphasizes collaboration, leadership, and enriching discussions among a diverse group of working professionals. Our program’s unique module delivery allows for a dynamic and focused learning environment with the ability to maintain full-time employment. Our small class size ensures that participants learn as much from one another as they do from their professors and that they create meaningful relationships along the way.

Class Profile

The average MA-IBP cohort is composed of a diverse group of 30-35 students with varied professional, academic, and personal experiences. Below is the profile of the 6th cohort of our MA-IBP program.

Alumni Lifelong Learning Program

Graduates of the Master of Arts in International Business and Policy program will join the global Georgetown University network of more than 190,000 alumni with deep and varied professional experience spanning business, multinational corporations, government, and non-governmental agencies.

We believe leaders never graduate. This thinking has inspired the creation of our Lifelong Learning Program (LLP), which supports our students’ professional and personal growth. LLP provides Georgetown’s MA-IBP alumni the opportunity to extend their learning and attain new business competencies for a lifetime. Through LLP, executive degree program alumni return to the classroom and audit elective courses offered through the Executive MBA program in the fall and spring semesters. Participants reconnect with faculty and fellow peers while also extending their professional networks outside of their program and cohort.
