Georgetown McDonough School of Business
The school treats international business as integral to everything they do, not something special or elective. While some business schools have recently adopted a similar approach, international business has been central to McDonough for many years. All MBA students take the Global Residency course, which includes on-campus instruction and a week-long foreign residency, in addition to intensive team consulting projects for international organizations or Fortune 500 companies with overseas operations.
MBA students may also pursue the Career Track residency, a weeklong immersion experience. If you opt for this, you will work on a partner company’s current case in marketing, finance, or consulting. You’ll be part of a student team that applies what it has learned in class to a real-world setting. Your team’s outcomes will be judged in a case competition judged by working professionals.
When McDonough’s admissions office reviews applications, they take a holistic approach, which means they strive to balance all the aspects that applicants present. For example, if a candidate has a sub-standard GMAT or academic record, the admissions committee would look for another aspect of the application to offset that weakness.
