Description of Learning Environment for Students

Georgetown University, founded in 1789, is one of the oldest
universities in
America. Offering unparalleled access to global business, policy and
leaders, the Robert Emmett McDonough School of Business is seated at
one of the
nation’s most prestigious universities in one of the world’s most
cities. The Georgetown MBA Program develops leaders capable of making
business decisions in a global environment and who are dedicated to
serving their
companies, society and humanity. Students gain solid grounding in all
core management
disciplines, with an emphasis on the global, ethical and political
of business. Our commitment to understanding international business is
by the global curricula, the strong presence of international students,
and the opportunities provided to study business and management
in other parts of the world.

For more than 215 years, Georgetown University has welcomed aspiring leaders
to its campus along the banks of the Potomac River. The campus is an oasis within
an exciting city and conveniently located to all of Washington, D.C. Georgetown
is one of the city’s liveliest and most engaging neighborhoods. Known for its
distinctive brand of energy and style, the city is home to museums, monuments,
world-class culture and big-time sports.

The Georgetown MBA Program moved into the Rafik B.
Hariri Building, a 179,000 square foot structure that will house all of
the school’s business education programs, in June 2009. Located on the
Georgetown University campus, the Rafik B. Hariri Building features 15
classrooms, 34 breakout rooms, 15 conference rooms, 11 interview rooms,
a 400-seat auditorium, two large lounges, and 120 faculty offices.
Student space is replete with data ports, flat-screen monitors, and
videoconferencing capabilities, allowing for global connectivity. The
abundant aesthetics of the building include a blend of stone masonry and
steel on the south elevation reminiscent of the university’s original
architecture combined with a panoramic glass pavilion on the east
elevation. Together these designs symbolize the mix of traditional
business foundations and forethought apparent in the education offered
at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business. A soaring glass atrium
serves as the core new building, providing literal transparency of
students’ education—putting business on display.


Academics and Student Body

Georgetown MBA provides a general management framework in accounting,
decision sciences, economics, finance, marketing, and management. The
curriculum is organized into intensive team-based experiences, courses
that integrate various functional areas, and electives. Students may
choose courses according to individual interests and career goals and
also pursue summer internships or study abroad programs. All students
are required to participate in the Global Business Experience, in
which teams conduct consulting projects for international companies and
present their recommendations to top managers at their places of
business abroad. Recent locations have included Dubai, Ho Chi Minh
City, Johannesburg, Prague and Sao Paulo.

With an emphasis on global business, innovation, and ethical decision-making,
Georgetown MBA faculty prepare students to be leaders of the future. Georgetown’s
tradition of strong student-faculty interaction is illustrated by the faculty
accessibility and involvement – collaborating on research projects, advising
student organizations, and assisting in career decision-making.

Teamwork, cooperation and friendly competition are emphasized. Because
classes are smaller, students develop close relationships with one
another, faculty and administrators. This atmosphere of easy
camaraderie extends to an active social life, both on Georgetown’s
campus and in Washington, D.C. The Georgetown MBA Program is comprised
of a broad cross-section of students from more than 41 nations, with
diverse backgrounds covering a wide-range of professional sectors and
undergraduate academic majors. Each year, approximately 250 students
enter the MBA Full-Time Program.


The Career Center and Placement

The MBA Career Center provides life-time access to their services for all Georgetown McDonough School of Business alumni. It is an invaluable resource for Georgetown MBA
students. The Center has two core functions-career advising/counseling services
and recruiting/employer relations-which benefit students in distinct but complimentary
ways. Students have access to career counseling services, topical workshops,
resume/cover letter critiques, mock interviews, and more. Students also benefit
from on-campus employer presentations and interviews for internships and full-time
employment as well as 24-hour access to job posting from employers seeking Georgetown
MBA applicants. Whether transitioning out of the military or moving up the chain
of command, the MBA Career Management Center can prepare you for your next career
opportunity. Review the most recent employment profile.
