The Georgetown McDonough MBA: What You Need To Know

The Georgetown McDonough School of Business full-time MBA program yields a general management degree that provides students with the functional knowledge and intellectual skills to manage and lead an organization. 

During fall of 2019 the school introduced a part-time Flex MBA program for students aiming to balance their education with work and life. This innovative program offers students a quality MBA by having them partake in hands-on consulting as a part of the Global Business Experience. They also develop alumni connections and receive MBA Career Center guidance. 

The Georgetown McDonough School of Business MBA begins in Opening Term with the Leading Teams for Performance and Impact course, which uses professional practice and behavioral science research to lead students towards greater leadership development. This course is followed by an experiential learning Structure of Global Industries (SGI) course that provides a substantial and highly integrated global view of business. Students will also take an Accounting Fundamentals course that covers the relationship between economic activity and financial information.

In a cohort, students then take 36 credits of core courses together. In the latter part of the curriculum, students begin to tailor their studies to their interests and professional goals by choosing from more than 70 elective courses in six different areas: accounting, finance, management, marketing, operations and information management, and strategy, economics, ethics & public policy. Students may also complete Intensive Learning Experiences, which are elective courses offered in one to two week periods, for one and a half or three hours of academic credit. 

Required for all MBA students is the Global Business Experience. Student teams partner with executives from Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, and NGOs to address complex business challenges. After spending six to eight weeks on campus applying strategic and analytical theory to develop client solutions, the experience culminates in a week-long in-country presentation to clients.
