The Global Business Fellows attended a reception hosted at the Panama Embassy January 27. Students enjoyed meeting with Ambassador Emanuel Gonzales-Revilla, who spoke about the geopolitics of the Panama Canal and the economic outlook for his country.

The Global Business Fellows Program is a new and innovative joint program between Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business and Walsh School of Foreign Service that combines fundamental business principles with coursework in international affairs, economics, and languages. The interdisciplinary curriculum enables students to analyze and solve challenges that impact business and public policy on a global scale. Students from both schools collaborate and engage core courses in business, economics, and international affairs, as well as the capstone Global Business Experience course.

Students also interact with economic leaders and public policy decision-makers in Washington, D.C. This reception with the Panamanian Embassy is just one example of the co-curricular programming for program. To find out more about the Global Business Fellows Program, click here.
