Georgetown University McDonough School of Business

Global Business Initiative’s

GLOBAL BUSINESS EXPERIENCE Because Business Has No Borders


WELCOME Known around the world for its emphasis on international business, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business created the Global Business Initiative (GBI) to ensure the school’s global mission is evident throughout all aspects of the student experience.

RICARDO ERNST, PH.D. Baratta Chair in Global Business and Professor of Operations Director Global Business Initiative

Located in one of the world’s most dynamic cities, Georgetown McDonough offers our students unparalleled access to global executives in business, government, and nonprofit organizations. GBI seeks to continue Georgetown’s status as the premier destination for global business education. In order to create more transformational opportunities for students, GBI works to expand the school’s touchstone Global Business Experience — which is highlighted in this brochure — and form partnerships with schools, organizations, and companies in Washington, D.C., and around the world. GBI’s work is invigorating — and necessary. I like to tell people that business has no borders. In this age of globalization, it is crucial that Georgetown McDonough educates future global-ready business leaders capable of making complex decisions. The Global Business Initiative exists to make that possible. Thank you for your interest in GBI. I look forward to welcoming you to our robust global business network.


ABOUT THE GLOBAL BUSINESS INITIATIVE The Global Business Initiative (GBI) works to distinguish Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business as the premier destination for global business education. GBI ensures that the global mission of Georgetown McDonough is evident throughout all aspects of the student experience — from the undergraduate to MBA to executive education programs — and through the school’s networks with alumni, employers, and partners at Georgetown and around the world. One of GBI’s most important responsibilities is to manage the school’s hallmark Global Business Experience. As you will learn on these pages, the Global Business Experience gives students the opportunity to address pressing business challenges with clients from around the world, ranging from small entrepreneurial companies to international enterprises. Thanks to programs like the Global Business Experience, McDonough students graduate prepared to succeed as global-ready leaders. Full-time MBA students visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, during their Global Business Experience.


GLOBAL BUSINESS EXPERIENCE The Global Business Experience empowers students to more fully understand how business is conducted around the world. As a leader in global business education, Georgetown McDonough offers students the opportunity to travel abroad to consult either within an industry or with specific Fortune 500 companies. This innovative program is required of all graduate students and is an elective for undergraduates. Since its inception, the Global Business Experience has reached:

7,900+ STUDENTS

1,500+ PROJECTS

30 CITIES

20

COUNTRIES

Working in small teams, students partner with executives from multinational organizations to address complex business challenges. Students spend several weeks on campus applying strategic business and analytical skills, with the guidance of faculty members, to develop solutions for their client. Then, students travel to the client’s country for a week-long trip to present recommendations to senior leadership. Companies often implement these recommendations, affecting business development and operations on a global scale.

“The Global Business Experience was something I wouldn’t have gotten if I hadn’t come here. It’s real-life preparation, and it was a conversation starter with employers that made a tremendous difference.” SRI SEKAR (MBA’15) Client: GE Current Position: Executive-track leadership program, GE


FACULTY Georgetown McDonough faculty are key to the success of the Global Business Experience. During the program, faculty collaborate with participating organizations to define the consulting projects and supervise student work, drawing on their many years of research and industry experience to benefit the student and client experience.

Full-time MBA students can elect to study abroad for a semester through partnerships with London Business School in London, England; HEC Paris in Paris, France; ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain; IAE Business School in Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Beijing International MBA at Peking University in Beijing, China. The Undergraduate Program offers customized summer programs at ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain; Oxford University in Oxford, England; and the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong. Students complete two business courses through these four- to six-week-long programs. The Undergraduate Program also created the summer Global Social Internship Program, which sponsors students to work in non-profit internships in Nicaragua, Peru, Costa Rica, India, and China. In addition, through the university’s Office of Global Education, undergraduates can study abroad at more than 75 universities and colleges in 40 countries. Evening MBA students help the community during their Global Business Experience in Lima, Peru.

CLIENTS Georgetown McDonough engages with approximately 150 companies each year to conduct projects in areas such as market entry, market development, communications, innovation strategy, competitive strategy, and global growth strategy. Participating companies gain access to global-ready business students and benefit from their research and industry- and client-specific recommendations.

In addition to client meetings, students also immerse themselves into the business culture of the host city through cultural events, discussions with local entrepreneurs, and visits to nonprofits and company headquarters. The experience continues even after the trip abroad. Upon returning to campus, students work across functional areas and learn from one another to draw conclusions about how industries operate around the world. They share their projects with their peers during a global business conference, from which the school is generating a series of Global Business Perspectives that leverage these global experiences.
