Global Business Fellows Class of 2017

The Global Business Fellows Program is an innovative joint program between the McDonough School of Business and the Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS). This program combines fundamental principles of business with required coursework in international affairs, economics, and languages. Such an interdisciplinary curriculum enables students to analyze and solve challenges that impact business and public policy on a global scale.

Program Design

Students from Georgetown McDonough and SFS are eligible to apply for admission to the Global Business Fellows Program in their sophomore year. The fellows program has three distinctive and inter-related elements: (1) Interdisciplinary Curriculum, (2) the Global Business Experience, and (3) Public Policy Programming. Fellows take a set of core courses in business, economics, and international affairs, as well as the Global Business Experience consulting course. In addition, students partake in co-curricular programming and professional development opportunities.
