Undergraduate Global Business Experience

Georgetown McDonough undergraduates interested in gaining a global perspective while learning valuable consulting skills may apply to the BADM 4090: Global Business Experience course. Under the faculty supervision, this three-credit course gives students the opportunity to work in teams and conduct a substantive consulting project for a private, public, or nonprofit organization abroad. The course culminates in a set of recommendations for each of the projects, enabling student teams to travel to the client organization’s country, during the week of spring break, to present their recommendations to the senior management.

Students may select from the following BADM 4090 courses offered each spring semester.

  1. Entrepreneurship and Startups – Professor Ricardo Ernst (Madrid, Spain) For GBF students only
  2. Retail Industry – Professor Charles Skuba (Lille, France, and Brussels, Belgium) Paused until Spring 2024
  3. Global Wine Industry – Professor Michael O’Leary (Mendoza, Argentina) Spring 2023
  4. Consumer Products – Professor Rama Ramamurthy (New Delhi, India) Paused until Spring 2024
  5. Opportunities in Emerging Markets – Professor Anthony Annan (Accra, Ghana) Spring 2023

The Innovation and Technology course is reserved for students in the Global Business Fellows (GBF) program from the McDonough School of Business and School of Foreign Service. The remaining three-course sections are open to McDonough juniors and seniors only.
