EXECUTIVE MBA


Shye Gilad (EMBA ’12) CEO, ProJet Aviation The Georgetown McDonough School of Business appealed to me because of its focus on international business, leadership, and entrepreneurism. I was drawn to the Executive MBA program because I wanted to be surrounded by peers who had a strong practical background in business, and I saw the passion of professors and students I met with on campus. The faculty are insightful, diverse, and challenging. The quality of the professors was exceptional, as was their general willingness to work with us beyond the classroom. I took the Mergers and Acquisitions course just as my company was evaluating the acquisition of a competitor. Professor Gary Blemaster provided me with insights that helped us value the deal and make key assumptions that led to a successful acquisition. The cohort experience was the most amazing part of the program. Over the course of two years you really get to learn about your fellow students, and the diversity and quality of the student mix were continuously inspiring. To get so many critical and valid points of view really expands your mind and challenges your own views. I made many lasting friendships and have developed a personal “board of directors” who I trust will challenge me and deliver critical insights whenever I call. I know I’m a more effective leader. I have learned to listen better and listen longer. I have more self-confidence that comes from greater knowledge about my career and my role in business. And I have gained an even greater respect for the incredible challenges that humans face.

Kathleen Wolff (EMBA ’12) Founder and CEO, TouchDome LLC Georgetown McDonough’s Executive MBA program is among the most prestigious in the country, with committed alumni, a stellar faculty, and a focus on global business. Its location in the nation’s capital made it all the more appealing to me. My degree has enabled me to think more strategically. The EMBA program faculty is simply superb. With the education and insights I gained from my professors and in my courses, I have been able to lay the foundation for my company’s growth. My residency in India helped me understand more about social impact investing. Our assignment was to help a client develop a social impact fund to benefit India’s most impoverished people at the base of the economic pyramid. Learning the dynamics of marketing in this developing economy offered fascinating insights. My company will target developing markets in the future. The friendships continue to this day. The cohort experience is a bonding one, and each of us contributed our unique skills in group assignments. We were all tested to the limit, and in the process we learned to support one another. We also know each other’s families and kids and respect each other’s dreams.


EXECUTIVE MBA CURRICULUM The EMBA curriculum capitalizes on our location at the center of global business and policy in Washington, D.C., by offering courses that specifically address the relationships between geopolitics and business. In the first year, the core curriculum presents a

Jean Claude Chidiac (EMBA ’12) Vice President, Strategic Development CACI International Inc. I chose Georgetown because of its reputation of academic excellence, international brand recognition, quality of international residencies, top-tier faculty, and proximity to my residence and my work. Also, the format for the EMBA program was ideal for my busy schedule. The entire program experience made me better at what I do. Each class challenged me in different ways, from leveraging the techniques and frameworks in preparing multi-year business strategies to interpreting financial reports and making better forward-looking decisions based on them. I also find myself constantly going back to materials from the strategy and marketing classes. I leaned on the excellent case-based knowledge foundation to tackle a major downturn in my own industry. Learning how other industries and leaders were able to survive and thrive in extremely challenging markets was seminal to me in helping my company survive and penetrate new markets during the downturn in federal contracting we experienced in the past few years. The EMBA program is probably the best investment you can make in yourself at this point in your career. The program provided me with perspective I needed to more effectively engage with other executives and, best of all, gave me a network of close advisors from the cohort on whom I can always rely for advice and input.

EXECUTIVE MASTER’S IN LEADERSHIP


Ariel Batungbacal (EML ’12) White House Fellow ’12 - ’13, U.S. Air Force The most influential aspect of the EML program was the chance to study executivelevel leadership in a world-class program that values diverse experiences within a cohort. The faculty have a strong mix of professional and academic experience, which offers a blended, sophisticated education. My cohort experience was extraordinarily rich and meaningful and created a broad network of relationships that have surpassed graduation. This is the point, though, right? A cohort of smart, diverse personalities and experiences to deepen learning opportunities and broaden our professional network, all for practical application. Residencies deepened my cohort’s relationships. They provided a concentrated, extended period away from distractions like email to dive deep into leadership challenges. This is a personal investment into yourself as a leader. When you are ready to brush off your trusted leadership tools and are open to acquiring new ones that may challenge how you lead — do it. Be all in, be present, and be ready for a life-enhancing experience!


EXECUTIVE MASTER’S IN LEADERSHIP Georgetown McDonough offers a distinctive Executive Master’s in Leadership (EML) program for executives aiming to advance their leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of management strategy.

Distinguished Georgetown faculty create a rich experience for EML students with a combination of coursework and three residencies, including one consulting project conducted abroad. Each residency is carefully designed to challenge

LEADERSHIP COACHING The EML program offers one-on-one coaching to help students maximize their potential, improve performance, and increase productivity. EML coaches respond to student concerns, helping to assess their abilities and goals and to develop specific action plans to advance those goals. All EML coaches have completed Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching Certification program and are experienced in coaching executives across many industries and functional areas.


Gerald Bruce (EML ’12) Vice President of Sales, Nutricia North America The Georgetown McDonough EML program, with its focus on leadership, was the best fit for me. It was my goal to become more effective as a leader and, as a leader of leaders, to enhance the leadership skills of the managers that report to me in my organization. The diversity of experiences and perspectives made for stimulating discussions in each and every class. The student collaboration and discussions led to friendships and associations that will go forward well beyond the program. The residencies also were valuable because, in many ways, they were an extension of the discussions we had in class. My favorite class was the one in which we developed our personal leadership action plan. The course helped me gain a better understanding of what I do when I am at my personal best and develop a plan to focus on those behaviors on a consistent basis. I continue to get enormous benefit from my personal leadership action plan.

LEADING AROUND THE WORLD Each EML global residency begins on campus with lectures and discussions that produce a better understanding of the history, culture, and leadership challenges at the site of the international residency. In addition, students begin working on a leadership-focused consulting project for a client in the host country. The experience culminates in a one-week, international residency where student teams present recommendations to the client and participate in academic and cultural experiences.

They partnered with local recycling companies to educate the community on recycled commodities. Moved by Langa’s staggering unemployment rate of more than 50 percent and challenging health issues such as HIV and AIDS, the students saw the opportunity to help rejuvenate and improve the quality of life in the area.

Declan J. Lynch (EML ’11) Lead Associate, Booz Allen Hamilton Having been in the United States Marine Corps and having served as a leadership instructor to newly commissioned officers, the concepts of leadership were significantly important to me. I enrolled in the Georgetown McDonough EML program because it was what I was looking for in a graduate program — a focus on how to achieve professional success in myriad types of organizations and not just in corporate America. The EML coursework was relevant to my career, and my career enriched my coursework. Taking such fantastic courses with great instructors while still working full time creates a vibrant classroom environment with invaluable discussions with classmates and peers. The concept of self-awareness was critical to understanding my own effectiveness as a professional. This continuous process of self-improvement has helped me be a better communicator, a more organized manager, and ultimately a more effective leader to my staff and clients while helping to shape my organization and position it for growth. I would advise anyone considering the EML program to come to campus and participate in a class. Seeing the quality instruction and the vibrant classroom environment as well as the high-caliber cohort of students will help you understand the great value of the program and how it can be a great fit for your own personal and professional development.

Is the EML program accredited? Yes, it is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Are GMAT or GRE scores required for admission to the EML program? No. Neither GMAT nor GRE scores are required for admission to the EML program. Must students be employed full time? We expect students to hold full-time employment throughout the program. As members of an executive learning community, students bring real-world experience into the classroom and are able to immediately apply academic concepts in their workplaces. However, in most cases the Admissions Committee will review and consider applicants who currently do not hold full-time positions. Do I have to be sponsored by my employer? As part of the application process, applicants are required to submit an employer letter of support sponsoring the students’ time commitment, including time off from work to complete the program. A template for this can be found on the online application. Although some students are partially or fully financially sponsored by their employers, financial sponsorship is not a requirement.

Philip A. Njowusi (GEMBA ’12) Managing Partner, Pan Services I needed a business management program with global perspectives and the opportunity to interact with other executives. I also needed a program that would fit my schedule and my obligation of managing an existing business. As someone who started a business without a formal business education, I was looking to transform my skills. I applied what I learned in class to manage my company’s cross-continental project teams and sharply improve our delivery processes. We now confidently look at global opportunities and recently added a team in Europe for a development project located in Sub-Saharan Africa. The residencies gave us a global learning experience. We experienced other economies and cultures, and we made day-to-day operational observations that enabled us to become more adaptable in real-life situations. I am now better informed and more open-minded. The program has been a transformational experience that has reaffirmed my confidence and provided a global network of friends and business associates.

Codie Sanchez Baker (CIM ’14) Vice President - Institutional Sales Director, State Street Global Advisors I enrolled in the Corporate International Master’s (CIM) program because my business is globalizing, and I was intrigued by the growth opportunity in Latin America. The CIM program is not a classmate-vs.-classmate environment. As executives, we have enough competition in our day jobs. These professionals understand the truth of being stronger together. But the faculty absolutely make this program. They are awe-inspiringly brilliant, incredible orators, skilled professionals, thoughtful instructors, and incredibly engaged. I can quantify immediate returns on my education investment. In one class, we did a case study analysis of a large multinational corporation in Mexico. I became intimately familiar with the company structure, global footprint, historical obstacles, and leadership strategy. The following week I was at a conference in Santiago and met the firm’s CFO. I was able to offer a few insights the class provided me, and now my company has an open opportunity to submit an investment proposal that could equate to millions in revenue. If you are considering this program, I would say jump in head first. It’s a chance to be at a premier institution that sits in the crux of global policy in tandem with a renowned school in Europe with long-standing connections and a top school in Brazil, which is an economy many are eager to penetrate.
