MBAs Log Over 450 Service Hours During Month of Volunteerism

Each year, Full-time and Flex MBA students at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business participate in the Month of Volunteerism and engage in a friendly competition to see which cohort can log the most service hours. This year, over 100 students volunteered for more than 450 hours during the month of November.

The winning cohorts — BLUES (Full-time MBA) and BULLDOGS (Flex MBA) — finished with a combined 196.50 hours. 

“I was thrilled to see the kind of turnout and engagement we witnessed for the Month of Volunteerism. After being remote for a year, it was great to see students live out their Jesuit values and continue to find time in their schedules to give back. This couldn’t have happened without the support of cohort members and community partners,” said Alexander Bezovics (MBA’22), vice president of community, Student Government Association (SGA).

The MBA Student Government Association (SGA) publicizes an array of volunteer opportunities with local, national, and global organizations throughout the year like Bread for the City, Soldiers’ Angels, So Others Might Eat, the United Nations, and so many more. 

Georgetown’s value of service to others is woven throughout all aspects of the MBA programs and community involvement doesn’t end in November. Those students who have devoted at least 100 hours of community service during their MBA studies are designated as Community Fellows and are honored at an end-of-the-year celebration, as well as recognition at Commencement.
