  • Favorite Business School Professors Teaching MBAs

    It isn’t easy to master the intricacies of the time value of money or a P&L statement. That’s why the most talented professors are often able to break down complex concepts so they are understandable and memorable —a specialty of two Georgetown professors: Allison Koester and Arthur Dong. According to Georgetown’s Devon Weiss, a classic poet who joined EY’s M&A operations department after graduation, both are able to relate key content to students in different ways. “Professor Arthur Dong has mastered the art of simplifying complex problems and teaching students how to apply MBA fundamentals to generate innovative solutions,” Weiss explains. In contrast, Koester appeals to various learning styles and experience levels. “Professor Allison Koester is able to simultaneously teach accounting courses to students with both CPA and non-business backgrounds,” Weiss explains. “Her ability to explain concepts in a seemingly endless number of ways and from multiple perspectives leaves no student behind.” “Professor Catherine Tinsley’s research enriches her leadership and negotiations courses, leveraging the most recent findings industry-wide. She has helped me learn how I can become a motivating, visionary leader by establishing a leadership style characterized by authenticity and embracing my own unique sources of power.” – Devon Weiss, Georgetown University, McDonough School of Business

  • Best Lessons From The MBA Class of 2016

    Like many, Georgetown’s Coral Taylor, who started as a product manager at Starbucks this month, discovered that she needed to learn how to follow before she could lead. “One of the greatest lessons I learned is how to cooperate and collaborate with a team even if I may not agree with the direction the team is going,” she says. “Sometimes there is greater value in having a cohesive vision than pushing for the team to take one individual’s vision.”

    For Georgetown MBA Coral Taylor, [Howard] Schultz is more than a role model. He is an inspiration. “I admire his courage to do what is right even if it is not the popular decision,” she says. “During the financial crisis, he refused to take away health care benefits for Starbucks partners even though it would save the company a tremendous amount of money. His support of gay marriage, hiring veterans and young people, access to education, and sustainable coffee-growing practices inspire me.”
