Further information on Georgetown's MBA

Georgetown MBA Full-TimeWorking and learning together in an environment of cooperation and healthy competition, students benefit from Georgetown’s team-centered approach. Each incoming class is divided into cohorts of approximately 60 students who share core classes and student activities. Cohorts build connections among students from diverse backgrounds and professional experience and allow for small class sizes and close contact with faculty.

In addition to regular coursework, students complete four residencies, intensive, week-long courses that challenge students to put their learning to work in simulated and real-world business experiences, including the Global Residency, in which student consulting teams tackle a pressing problem for real-world international corporations and travel abroad to present their work to the client’s senior leadership.

The faculty at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business is composed of highly regarded scholars and accomplished business leaders who bring their experience and expertise to the classroom. Small class size makes for personalized attention and approachable faculty members eager to share their wealth of practical knowledge over the course of the student’s study at Georgetown.

Students may prepare for their future with Career Management Services. From helping students develop the tools necessary to advance their careers to building relationships with potential future employers, Georgetown’s Career Management team works closely with students to determine how their individual talents and interests can contribute to their long-term professional achievement.

Focus on Leadership

At Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business, all MBA students are required to complete two leadership-related courses: Leadership and Business Ethics (LBE) I and II. We tie leadership and ethics together because we believe that they are inextricably linked, and we want our students to appreciate this connection. All MBA students will also participate in a week long intensive Leadership Residency, which engages them in a thorough exploration of personal and organizational leadership.

Guided by faculty and inspired by accomplished speakers, students learn about leadership through cases, readings, self-assessment, and coaching. Students will develop their own Personal Leadership Plan, which integrates leading theories, current world context, and their own experiences to create a clear path to achieve their long-term goals.

In addition, students enjoy the many speakers brought to Georgetown's McDonough School of Business through our Distinguished Leaders Series and Leaders Breakfast Series. The MSB Distinguished Leaders Series takes place in large group settings, to allow for maximum attendance. The MSB Leaders Breakfast Series is more intimate, providing space for no more than 25 students in order to maximize interaction and dialogue.

Our students really appreciate the opportunity to have breakfast with well-known leaders such as Phillip Carroll (retired Shell CEO), Richard Frank (CEO of Darby Overseas Investments Ltd.), Robin Michel (executive vice president and general manager of Giant Foods USA), Susan Schwab (former U.S. trade representative), José María Aznar (former prime minister of Spain), and Aleksander Kwasniewski (former president of Poland).

Full-time MBA curriculum

Emphasizing the global scope of the modern marketplace and the central role of teamwork in business success, the Georgetown MBA Full-Time Program at the McDonough School of Business prepares emerging business leaders for advanced management careers.

In the fall semester of the first year, students take a number of core courses, ranging from financial accounting and applied business statistics to organizational behavior and management communication. In the spring of the first year, students begin to tailor the curriculum to their interests and professional goals by taking elective courses in addition to core courses. In the second year, student coursework is almost entirely made up of electives. An overview of the two-year curriculum can be seen here.

In addition to regular coursework, Georgetown MBA students complete four intensive residencies that challenge them to apply their learning in real-world applications, in-depth personal and professional development plans, and an international consulting project.
