The Georgetown McDonough MBA: What You Need To Know

Since 1981, The Georgetown McDonough School of Business has offered a full-time MBA; since fall 2019 the school also offers a Flex MBA. Both programs give students a general management education that includes the functional knowledge and intellectual skills to manage and lead an organization.

The full-time MBA program is 21 months long and the Flex MBA program is 26-60 months. Both programs follow the same 54-credit curriculum.

Georgetown McDonough’s MBA kicks off with the Leading Teams for Performance and Impact course, which explores the dynamics of diversity and inclusion, implicit biases, conflict and civility, and giving and receiving feedback. The course is followed by an experiential learning Structure of Global Industries course that provides experiential learning with an integrated global view of business. Students also take an Accounting Fundamentals course that covers the relationship between economic activity and financial information.

In cohorts, students 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 different areas including accounting, finance, management, marketing, operations and information management, strategy, economics, ethics & public policy. Students also complete Intensive Learning Experiences: elective courses offered in one to two-week periods, for one and a half or three hours of academic credit.

The programs’ pedagogy mixes case study with hands-on group projects and culminates in consulting projects as a part of the Global Business Experience, a required course where student teams partner with executives from global 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 ends in a week-long in-country presentation abroad to clients.

Students from both programs have access to the MBA Career Center with a wide array of opportunities to attend employer information sessions, career days, career treks, and interviews on campus, and may participate in over 40 student organizations to build upon their leadership skills.
