The diverse range of industries is also reflected in the makeup of the Class of 2023. The graduating cohort of 96 students represents 53% women, 33% underrepresented minorities, and 43% international students across 25 countries. With an average age of 23 and just over half a year of work experience, students also come from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds both in business and other liberal arts and STEM-related fields, which further strengthens their learning experience as a cohort and creates new pathways for career opportunities. Among the cohort, students previously studied liberal arts, humanities, or social sciences (39%), business or finance (29%), STEM (18%), and economics (14%). 

Designed for those who recently earned a bachelor’s degree, the MiM degree is a 10-month, full-time, STEM-designated program that helps rising professionals develop the business, management, and technology skills necessary to succeed in a variety of industries. In addition to real-world coursework such as the signature Global Business Experience course and ongoing career treks, students also benefit from a dedicated career services team that provides one-on-one career coaching, career workshops, curriculum, networking opportunities, and access to Georgetown’s worldwide network of alumni. 

“The MiM career team supports students at every phase of their career journey as they discover their interests, build their holistic career strategy, and grow as a principled leader in business,” said Karen Kouagou, director of career services for the MiM program. “Each student’s career pathway is unique, and we are committed to offering whole-person support and guidance to help them realize their full potential. These outcomes are a testament to the extraordinary Class of 2023 who leveraged these resources, remained focused on their professional pursuits, and achieved extraordinary outcomes after graduation.”
