The students of the Robert Emmett McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University benefit from healthy competition and team-centered practices while following the school’s core values of learning, having a global mindset, integrity, professionalism, and community. Along with a full-time M.B.A. program, the school also offers an evening M.B.A., a global executive M.B.A., and an executive master’s in leadership, which is a 12-month program that weaves together a comprehensive education in leadership theory with business strategies.

Students enrolled in the full-time M.B.A. program are required to complete four residencies, which are team-based weekly projects that place the students in real-world business simulations. The residencies explore themes including leadership, global initiatives, careers, and fundamentals as students prepare for their lives after business school. The McDonough School of Business encourages its students to engage in extracurricular activities to supplement the coursework they are completing, and there are more than 30 M.B.A.-related organizations for students to explore. The school organizes an annual event known as Global Diversity Day, which celebrates the various backgrounds of each student enrolled in the M.B.A. program at Georgetown University. All graduate students at the university live in off-campus housing, with plenty of housing opportunities in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
Alumni of the McDonough School of Business include Michael Chasen, president, CEO, and cofounder of Blackboard, Inc.; Timothy Tassopoulos, senior vice president of operations at fast food restaurant chain Chick-fil-A; and Stephanie Olson, general counsel for Fifth Avenue Financial.
