Global Programs

At no other time has a global perspective been more important in business education. Through participation in the innovative programs below, Georgetown McDonough students will cultivate the necessary skills to succeed as future global leaders.

Careers and Internships

Today’s students have more career options than ever. Students must be acutely aware of their own strengths, skills, motivations, and values to develop a sustainable career plan that meets the needs of an ever-changing job market. The McDonough Office of Professional Development supports students in this process of self-discovery, career education, and network-building to create a career that will carry them throughout life.
