Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business Joins Consortium for Graduate Study in Management
The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing diversity in business school and the corporate world, announced this week that Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business has joined as its newest member school, bringing the total number of member schools to a record 18.
McDonough is the first new business school to join the Consortium since 2010. The Consortium recruits new member schools selectively, believing that by partnering with only the top MBA programs in the country is the best way to help its members and fellows succeed while providing its corporate partners with access to the most promising candidates.
“We are extremely pleased to partner with Georgetown University,” Peter J. Aranda, III, Consortium executive director and CEO, said in a statement. “Having this school among our offerings increases our value proposition for both prospective MBA candidates hoping to attend a top-ranked school committed to diversity and inclusion, as well as our corporate partners who recruit students and alumni across our member schools.”
McDonough’s partnership with the Consortium will be official on July 1, 2013, and the Consortium will begin recruiting prospective MBA students for Georgetown McDonough in the fall of 2013, with the first class graduating in the spring of 2016.
