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. Also, you will have access to career treks — informational visits to key organizations in the D.C. area with alumni connections — and networking opportunities.

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 build relationships with faculty, deans, and alumni in our Leaders-in-Residence (LIR) program. The LIR program is designed to provide students the opportunity to interact with and learn from leaders from all over Georgetown. The program includes small group sessions of five to six students and one leader recruited by the director of student services. Mentorship is about asking the right questions and the sessions help students ask questions that will help them decide what they want and need to get out of the program — as well as what kind of leaders they want to be in the future. Students also spearhead our fall service project and have the opportunity to serve our community while honing their marketing and leadership skills. 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.
