McDonough School of Business – Georgetown University

McDonough School of Business

The McDonough School of Business is located on Georgetown University’s campus along the Potomac River in Washington D.C. In addition to the full-time MBA program, McDonough also offers executive and part-time MBA options. Distinguishing aspects of the program include an emphasis on global business, particularly through the Global Business Experience program; this program was established in 2012 to replace the former residency program as a capstone international experience for MBA students.
