International Students

A diverse student body is integral to developing the university’s global mindset, and Georgetown encourages students from around the world to join the community of scholars and professionals at the McDonough School of Business. Our MBA students hail from 46 countries across the globe. In addition, many of our students speak more than one language and have lived, studied, or worked abroad.

International students also are encouraged to share the cultures of their home countries with classmates both informally and through organized events. Many of these activities are planned by student organizations such as the Middle East Graduate Alliance, the Asia Business Consortium, the European Business Association, the Japan Club, the Latin American Business Association, and the South Asian Business Alliance. These organizations host cultural events and activities, organize trips and outings, and lead initiatives to explore global career opportunities in international markets.

At the annual International Festival, students gather to share the cuisine, dress, culture, and customs from their home countries with the rest of the MBA community. This family-friendly event often includes dance and cultural demonstrations and boasts attendance of more than 300 MBA students and family members each year.

As part of our commitment to your academic success, Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business provides a variety of resources to assist international students throughout their time in the MBA program. These resources and workshops include:

As part of its mission to incorporate a global mindset into the classroom experience, Georgetown McDonough also attracts international business leaders to speak to students on campus. Recent speakers at the McDonough School of Business include:
