McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University
Why you should consider this program
The Georgetown University McDonough School of Business develops principled leaders with a global mindset to be in service to business and society. Through courses, co-curricular activities, and career-related events, Coverdell Fellows will receive a rigorous business education that also prepares them to make a positive impact on the community through careers in for-profit, non-profit, or non-governmental organizations. Our location in Washington, D.C. also provides a business perspective at the intersection of policy and society.
All full-time students will complete a 60-credit program over the course of 21 months. The general management degree provides both core courses and the ability to customize the program by taking electives from: accounting, finance, marketing, management, and operations and information management.
A highlight of the Fellows program will be a required Global Business Experience. This program allows students to consult for an international company, solving real-world problems for a client. This six to eight-week experience culminates in a one-week global trip to meet with and present recommendations to the client.
