DEAN’S MESSAGE At Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, we strive to make a positive impact on the world around us. With a mission to serve both business and society, we often focus on the work of our students, faculty, and alumni. In these pages, we also would like to recognize the tremendous impact of our growing community of philanthropic support. The alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations that contribute time and resources to our school cause a ripple effect — by transforming ourselves, we are able to transform the world.

Across the school, your contributions have touched thousands of individuals. Scholarships open doors and allow us to recruit the very best students. Funding that supports student and faculty research enhances our thought leadership and influences business practice. Endowing chairs and professorships creates opportunities to attract and retain top academics to teach our students. Contributions to the Dean’s Leadership Fund enrich student life and opportunities for student success.

In addition to making financial contributions, you have spoken in classes, served on our boards, hosted events, mentored or recruited students, employed our graduates, or sponsored our extracurricular programming. The pages of this report could never capture the full impact that you have on the school, but what follows highlights many of the ways in which your support has enriched the Georgetown McDonough experience and allowed us to live our mission, both on the Hilltop and around the world.

“As we continue toward our goal of becoming a

preeminent business school built on the pillars of principled leadership, a global mindset, and service to business and society, we are grateful for your support. Thank you.

SUPPORTING FACULTY RESEARCH Donors have contributed $15 million of the school’s $23.5 million goal to support faculty excellence. These funds help support faculty research like Assistant Professor Neeru Paharia’s “Sweatshop Labor Is Wrong Unless the Shoes Are Cute,” which investigated consumer reasoning and decision-making processes behind purchasing items made from sweatshop labor. Published in May 2013 by Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, the study examined experiments using hypothetical labor conditions at destination resorts, with desirable brands and amongst competing corporations. Paharia determined that consumers drew on motivated reasoning, product desirability, and

moral hypocrisy (or self-relevance) to justify questionable labor practices with economic development explanations. Following the collapse of Rana Plaza, an eight-story garment factory in Bangladesh, Paharia was highly sought for commentary as the incident brought significant media attention to the topic of sweatshop labor and working conditions.

“Research consistently has found that consumers

have a strong preference to purchase products made without sweatshop labor, but the question of why demand for products that guarantee favorable working conditions is so low led me to this research. It seemed if consumers really cared, there would be more demand for sweatshop-free products and more opportunities for companies to profit from such products. It turns out there are a variety of reasons that may explain why we find ourselves in this conflicting situation.

FUNDING SOCIAL IMPACT While many Full-time MBA students use their summer internship as a stepping stone to lucrative corporate careers, an increasing number of Georgetown McDonough students spend their summers exploring another option: nonprofit and social impact organizations.

“Over the summer I interned as a short-term associate in Acumen’s East Africa office in Nairobi, Kenya. The opportunity to spend a summer in a developing country and understand the challenges and opportunities that these countries face is not something that can be learned in the classroom or from reading a newspaper. Getting on-the-ground experience will be invaluable for my future career, and Social Impact Internship Fund funding made the decision to go abroad easier.


The student-led Social Impact Internship Fund (SIIF) raises funds and awards scholarships to support Georgetown McDonough MBA students pursuing unpaid or minimally funded internships in social impact-oriented organizations. Supported in part by the Dean’s Leadership Fund, SIIF awarded $34,500 to 13 students for their 2013 summer internships, which took place in Washington, D.C., and around the world, from Managua, Nicaragua, to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.


SOCIAL IMPACT ORGANIZATIONS 2013 Social Impact Internship Fund recipients worked at the following organizations: • Acumen Fund • Agora Partnerships • Ashoka • Education Pioneers • Inter-American Development Bank • Millennium Challenge Corporation • OPIC • ShoreBank International Ltd. • Social Impact Partners • The Tony Elumelu Foundation • U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Development Policy and Debt

PRINCIPLED LEADERSHIP In January, Georgetown University and the District of Columbia Public Schools launched a new cohort of the Executive Master’s in Leadership Program that prepares D.C. principals to address leadership opportunities and challenges faced by an urban school system. The program was inspired by

District, as well as the Incarcerated

Kaya Henderson (SFS ’92, EML ’07),

Youth Program.

who was asked to take the helm of DCPS as chancellor while still a student in the EML program. Having felt transformed by her own experience at Georgetown McDonough, Henderson reached out to her alma mater to create a version of the program specifically for primary and secondary school principals. The 25 principals in the inaugural class, shown below at their opening residency, lead elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the

The yearlong program is made possible in part by a generous multi-year gift from the Bradley Charitable Fund of the Community Foundation for the National Capital Region and furthers Georgetown’s mission by serving the needs of the city. By creating a transformational educational experience for these principals, Georgetown and DCPS hope to positively impact the 45,000 students who attend the city’s schools.


“I am thrilled that we have

partnered with Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business to create an innovative program that will enhance our principals’ leadership skills and strengthen DCPS’ human capital efforts. Together, we are making an investment not only in the futures of the principals but in the future of DCPS.

GLOBAL EXPERIENCES Pioneered by Georgetown McDonough in 1994, the Global Business Experience gives business students the opportunity to expand their worldview as they partner with executives from multinational organizations to address complex business challenges. This program is just one way that the school’s Global Business Initiative (GBI), led by Professor Ricardo Ernst, ensures that the global mission of Georgetown McDonough is evident throughout all aspects of the student experience. Beginning in spring 2014, the Undergraduate Program will partner with GBI to implement the Global Business Experience as an elective for undergraduate students, thanks

to a generous gift from Joseph (B ’93) and Abigail (SFS ’96) Baratta. “Georgetown has an opportunity to really define what is unique about its undergraduate business education,” Joseph Baratta says. “It’s not just to study accounting and finance — exposure to different business cultures is important to be a really successful business person. Giving that kind of exposure at a young age is beneficial and unique to Georgetown.”


• • • • • • • • • •

“Business has no borders. In this age of globalization, it’s crucial that Georgetown McDonough educates future business leaders capable of making complex business decisions in a global environment.

GLOBAL CAREER CONNECTIONS MBA students have the opportunity to attend many different types of career fairs, though the one held at Georgetown McDonough is unique. We thank the employers who support this initiative as well as those who provide other career opportunities for our students.


Now in its third year, the Global Career Conference and Expo (GCCE) is the only in-person career fair that connects employers to MBA candidates from top schools who are U.S. students seeking global opportunities or international students seeking U.S. employment.

business schools

Global Career Conference and Expo Attendees

The event’s success lies in its exclusivity — it connects the best talent from top business schools with interested employers who do not find the same level of exposure anywhere else. It also provides students with access to employers specifically seeking global talent.



261 students

“GCCE was an incredible experience to get

profound information about global companies and their general interest in international students. For me, it was a crucial part of my professional career because it was during GCCE that I first interviewed with L’Oréal, the company that ultimately extended an offer and where I now work as a finance manager.

TRANSFORMING PASSION INTO ACTION Georgetown McDonough is committed to rewarding excellence and providing financial assistance to deserving students in all of its programs. The Georgetown MBA John F. Connelly Scholars Program is an endowed scholarship program established to recognize an elite group of students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, professional excellence, and leadership in their community. Created in 2001 by the Connelly Foundation of West

Conshohocken, Pa., the program benefits 10 MBA students each year. In addition to receiving full tuition scholarships, Connelly Scholars enjoy special programming, mentoring, and leadership development. “The Connelly scholarship gave me the opportunity to arm myself with the best, most socially focused education and training in business management,” says Connelly Scholar Maria Luque (MBA ’15).

“Additionally, thanks to the special networking opportunities, I am able to develop stronger relationships with my fellow Connelly Scholars, with Dean Thomas, and other members of McDonough School of Business.” » To learn how to support or create an endowed scholarship, contact Matilda Carpenter, senior director of development, at (202) 687-3930 or

“Thanks to the financial freedom that the Connelly

Scholarship gives me, I am able to truly focus on pursuing my passion of eliminating global poverty through a career in international development, removing the role of personal finances from my professional decisions. I have the responsibility to ensure that the impact of this award will extend well beyond my own career by giving back to Georgetown and society.

THE UNDERGRADUATE EXPERIENCE Georgetown McDonough faculty regularly conduct research on topics that impact public policy and business. Now, our undergraduates have the opportunity to work with faculty on these research projects and to explore the global business environment abroad. For the second year, undergraduate students played an important role in faculty research through the Undergraduate Research Fellow Awards. Thanks to generous donors and support of the Parents Advisory Council, the Undergraduate Program, led by Senior Associate Dean Norean R. Sharpe, granted a total of $75,000 to 19 students to conduct summer research with faculty from disciplines including marketing, management, and operations. These experiences culminated in the inaugural Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Other undergraduate students used their summer break to study business concepts internationally. In 2012–13, the Undergraduate Program supported summer study abroad scholarships totaling $100,000 for nearly 30 students at one of three custom programs in Oxford, Barcelona, and Shanghai. Recently, members of the Parents Advisory Council provided a generous gift to establish the Global Parents Fund, which will enhance our ability to award these scholarships.

“Our mission is to provide a transformative experience for students. The impact of conducting research with faculty and exploring how to establish and grow a global business cannot be overestimated.

Georgetown McDonough School of Business December 20, 2012 Congrats to MBA student Jae Yoon, MBA ’15, who supported Northwest Biotherapeutics in the opening bell ceremony with NASDAQ!


HALLMARKS OF A GEORGETOWN EDUCATION Alumni reminiscing about their days on the Hilltop talk about their professors and how the lessons they learned transformed their lives and their careers. Georgetown McDonough currently has 100 full-time faculty who provide the academic knowledge, rigor, and research that are hallmarks of the Georgetown experience. Only 12 of those faculty positions are funded with endowed gifts — a number significantly lower than the school’s competitors. Alumni like Michael Psaros (B ’89) are taking action to improve those numbers. Psaros and his wife, Robin, endowed the most recent faculty position. During the school’s Beta Gamma Sigma honor society induction ceremony in April 2013, the Psaroses announced their gift to create the Robin and Michael Psaros Endowed Chair in Business Administration. This sentimental moment for the Psaroses drew enthusiastic applause from the faculty, students, and families attending the ceremony.

“Robin and I believe that to those whom much is

given, much is expected. Endowing this chair is a great honor. Georgetown University is one of the world’s premier educational institutions, and its core competency and expertise is teaching and the classroom experience. Georgetown McDonough has and will continue to attract the best and brightest faculty in the world, and our gift is in furtherance of strengthening the school’s competitive advantage.

EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES In August, three students from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business Executive Master’s in Leadership (EML) program launched the Georgetown WasteNot Initiative in Cape Town, South Africa. The initiative links poverty-stricken communities to local manufacturers in close proximity to one another. As part of EML’s Global Business Experience, a student-consulting project designed to assist overseas organizations, EML ‘14 students Cherian Thomas, Tim Powers, and Ted Fahy partnered with South African manufacturers to host educational workshops in Langa Township to teach residents the value of their waste. The team also launched a fully functional waste collection business named the Halaza Innovation Center, where local residents can bring recyclable trash, weigh the material, and receive immediate monetary compensation. The waste is then sorted, baled, and commoditized to serve as raw material for local manufacturers in South Africa. Gifts to Georgetown McDonough’s executive degree programs help provide support to Professor Lamar Reinsch, director of the EML program, and the students as they develop curriculum for future EML courses in an effort to sustain and further develop these initiatives.

“Our mission in Langa was to bring together and

empower communities, businesses, universities, local entrepreneurs, and the necessary key players to create a sustainable business. The outcome of the project will significantly benefit the people of Langa and also has the power and influence to shape cross-cultural partnerships around the world.

RISING TO THE CHALLENGE It was a clean sweep for Georgetown’s undergraduate and MBA venture capitalists in case competitions in 2013. Gifts to Georgetown McDonough’s Undergraduate and MBA Programs help send students to case competitions in the United States and around the world. In February, Georgetown won the first national Undergraduate Venture Capital Investment Competition (uVCIC). Seniors Herbie Golstein, Erin Cay Cawley, Tom Zorc, Elizabeth Schieffelin, and Jeff Stefanis played the role of a firm that went through the entire VC investment process in

a condensed time period. A panel of venture capitalist judges evaluated teams on how well they identified and mitigated risk, understood the VC process, communicated, and worked as a team. After winning local and regional competitions, the MBA Georgetown McDonough team, composed of Neal Foley, Sherief Khalil, Ryan Hill, Sara Zulkosky, and Selman Altun, placed first at the 2013 Venture Capital Investment Competition

(VCIC) international finals in April. Sixty of the best business schools in the world participated in the 2013 VCIC, where a panel of venture capitalists judged each team on how well it analyzed startup companies, interviewed entrepreneurs, structured a deal, and negotiated terms. Winning teams from the 10 regional VCICs qualified to compete in the international finals. Georgetown McDonough won the 2013 Mid-Atlantic VCIC in February.


“The VCIC competition has been the most rewarding experience thus far in the MBA program. As an MBA student, this provides a valuable opportunity to transition into the venture capital industry after graduation.
