  • An Expert’s Advice on How Metro Can Win Back Riders

    Metro has a trust problem says Prashant Malaviya, senior associate dean of MBA programs at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. People who depend on Metro to get to where they’re going can’t always count on it anymore. And as experts like Malaviya say when a brand or product loses trust with its core customer base, it’s really hard to win that back. “I sympathize with them,” Malaviya said. “They’ve had a really tough year.”


  • A Georgetown MBA & His Mule

    A profile of Matt Bishop (MBA ’10): It’s a spectacular late-September morning somewhere on a swath of national forest land in the foothills outside of Boise, Idaho. Mountain bikers, trail runners, and hikers stream over the dirt single-track trails at varying speeds. And then there’s Matt Bishop, Andrea Hovey, and Richard. Bishop wears a cowboy hat, chaps, and an apron. He also boasts an MBA from Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business. Hovey dons a fedora and a blue athletic shirt. And Richard is a mule.

  • Meet Georgetown’s MBA Class of 2018

    Six hours south of New Haven, you’ll find another sleeping giant that is just starting to come into its own: Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. Just 30 years old, McDonough’s full-time MBA program is poised to make some noise thanks to the same attributes it shares with Yale SOM. Notably, McDonough integrates a celebrated international business focus with traditional Jesuit values of service and support. It has built synergies with Georgetown’s heralded law and foreign service programs. The school has also raked in $130 million dollars, along with boosting applications by 40% in recent years according to former dean David Thomas, who stepped down in August. Not to mention, the program is based in the heart of Washington, DC, which ranks among the livable cities in the United States — and rivals New York City and Silicon Valley for the most lucrative internship and employment opportunities.

  • BlueCart: Simplifying Restaurant Orders

    Then-Georgetown MBA student Konstantin Zvereff was floored when he walked into salad chain sweetgreen a few years ago and saw how much time ordering could consume in a manager’s day. Zvereff and his co-founder at BlueCart, Jag Bansal, got an inside look at those operations because sweetgreen’s founders — fellow Georgetown alums Nicolas Jammet, Jonathan Neman and Nathaniel Ru — had approached Georgetown McDonough School of Business looking for some grad students who could help assess their operation.
