Global Summits and Speaker Series
The Global Business Initiative brings accomplished business leaders to engage the Georgetown McDonough community in dialogue about the challenges of leading global businesses in specific industries. By hearing from senior executives currently working in multinational companies our students receive invaluable experience transforming theoretical knowledge into practical business applications.
GBI has also partnered with the Georgetown Retail & Luxury Association (GRLA), a student-run organization that focuses on educating peers about the retail and luxury industries as well as increasing opportunities for them within those fields.
