    2019 Best & Brightest: Jerome Smalls, Georgetown University (McDonough)

    What did you enjoy most about your business school? The DEANS! The McDonough School of Business has some of the most resourceful, compassionate, and loving deans. I have been able to build genuine relationships with nearly every dean in the McDonough School of Business [Undergraduate Program] not only due to my involvement in multiple programs but also because of our classic “Bagels with Deans” that occur every Thursday morning! The deans have offered more than just academic or career advice. In many ways, I have been able to create friendships with them, friendships that I believe will last a lifetime.

    How To Fix Big Tech Without Breaking It Up

    Hal Singer makes his living as an expert witness in antitrust cases and teaching at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. In recent years, he’s also become one of the handful of economists who are trying to shake up the once-staid world of antitrust theory. He’s testified before Congress, participated in a symposium held by the Federal Trade Commission, and made speeches in which he’s offered his own solution for how to reignite competition in the face of the power of Big Tech. Whether you agree with him or not, his ideas are being taken seriously in the halls of Congress, and have helped spark a debate that could have enormous consequences. What follows is a lightly edited and condensed version of a recent conversation we had about his ideas.

    2019 Best & Brightest: Julia Hyman, Georgetown University (McDonough)

    What did you enjoy most about your business school? The collaborative environment. The majority of my classes involve group projects and, as a result, I have learned much more by working in those groups and being exposed to so many classmates. I have learned to be a leader and, perhaps more importantly, a listener. It has taught me to be a teammate and to work through challenges as a group.

    Congress Looking For Private Industry Help With Stopping Senior Scams

    Georgetown University’s Liddy Manson, the director of the Aging Well Hub, said any legislation could threaten to slow down free enterprise, but she supports this. Manson said, “I know that many people in the business community may grit their teeth at it. But this type of legislation, in my mind probably has more promise to addressing the situation than allowing private enterprise to come up with a solution on their own.”

    ‘Three Spots’: Alleged Bribery Of Tennis Coach Stings Georgetown Admissions

    John Hasnas, a business professor and executive director of the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics, said he gave the university some credit for spotting a problem with [Gordon] Ernst in 2017. Still, Hasnas said the scandal was shocking in its national scope and duration. “The blatancy of the schemes suggests people involved knew universities weren’t paying proper attention and were easy to defraud in this way,” Hasnas said.
