The Georgetown Difference

Located at the intersection of business, government, and international relations, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business develops ethical leaders committed to the common good. We offer a reputation for academic excellence embodied by global projects, distinctive courses, and activities that leverage the rich fabric of Washington, D.C.

D.C. Advantage

Our location in the global capital city of Washington, D.C., provides you with access to global thought leaders and experiences that few schools can match.

Jesuit Tradition

Georgetown was established on the Jesuit principles of equality, respect, and cura personalis — care for the whole person — and those same values define the school today. Our culture encourages students to collaborate, extend learning outside the classroom, and lead with impact after graduation.

Renowned Expertise

Our diverse faculty includes world-class scholars, professionals with broad experience in business, and experts in innovation.

Blending Technology and Innovation with a Business Foundation

Our accelerated, 10-month program provides a foundational business curriculum with a focus on the application and implication of technology and innovation.

You will learn business essentials like global financial markets, supply chain operations, marketing, and statistics along with concepts such as design thinking and emotionally intelligent leadership. Courses combine theory and practice — you will work on consulting projects, interact with business leaders on site visits, learn the programming language R, and absorb lessons from innovative global companies to understand the impact of today’s constantly changing technology.

In addition, the curriculum features a signature global business consulting experience focused on innovation that includes traveling abroad for one week. Working in small teams, students partner with executives from multinational organizations to address complex business challenges.

The MiM program provides students with skills that make them attractive, well-rounded professional candidates.

I came in with limited experience in quantitative fields, but left feeling comfortable in these subject areas.

I also enhanced my soft skills through countless experiential learning exercises. MiM enabled me to feel comfortable walking into any business setting with confidence.”

Most schools use values as a marketing tool, but in this program, the Georgetown values are incorporated in the education inside and outside of the classroom. You feel like you are truly part of a community.

“ Experience (3.5 credits)

Georgetown’s D.C. location brought an electric feeling to the cohort that I have never experienced before. We always knew that there was something out there to be discovered. Going to school in the nation’s capital gave me a feeling of connectedness to global events that were taking place just a few blocks down the road. ”

Off-campus Experience

Master’s in Management classes are held on Georgetown University’s campus in Washington, D.C., but there are multiple opportunities to step off campus — and even to travel around the world.

Global Business Experience

In the spring semester, you will take our signature Global Business Experience course. Working together, you will partner with executives from an international organization to address a real-life business challenge. The consulting project includes a one-week visit abroad to the organization’s location and caps off with delivering recommendations to senior leadership.

Site Visits and Career Treks

Site visits to innovative companies in the Washington, D.C., area and meetings with senior leaders are frequently incorporated into the Georgetown Master’s in Management curriculum.

Flexible Format for Internships

The program schedule is structured so that students interested in completing internships at area institutions may do so.

Student Life

Building Community

In the MiM program, we are purposeful about building community. From team activities and cohort gatherings to McDonough-wide organizations, we help students make connections that enhance their co-curricular experience.

Within the program, students have opportunities to take leadership roles and spearhead classwide activities. Most notable among these are two student-run organizations, our Service Committee and the Culture & Community Committee.

The Service Committee creates programming and activities that fulfill our Jesuit mission of being women and men for others by organizing activities that serve the entire McDonough community while raising funds for good causes.

The Culture & Community Committee provides an opportunity for students to build leadership skills while organizing fun activities for their classmates outside the classroom. Between planning happy hours, socials, and physical activities, the Culture & Community Committee is all about creating a sense of place for all students.

Outside the program, students have dozens of career, cultural, and social clubs at their fingertips through the Graduate Student Organization, some of which are housed at McDonough through the MBA program. The MiM community actively helps students to connect with others and form bonds that last long past their time at McDonough.

The cohort experience was my favorite part of the MiM program. Not only have I made life-long friends, but I have learned immensely from my peers that come from different backgrounds and experiences. Working with such diverse people who I now call my close friends allowed me to think from different perspectives and consider many sides to an issue.

“ ”

It was a new experience for me having a dedicated careers team, and I felt so supported throughout the process. We were encouraged to set a ‘gameplan’ at the beginning of the term, and it made the career search so much less daunting because I had small steps and ‘wins’ that were easy to track and follow.
