Serious Business Starts Now - New MBA Curriculum

As a pioneer in global business education, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business once again is changing the way that MBA students attain a global mindset.

This August, incoming MBA students arrived early to complete the Structure of Global Industries, a three-week integrative course that teaches the critical features of competition in international business. It is the first course in a newly designed curriculum that aims to develop principled leaders with a global mindset to be in service to business and society through integrative teaching, added rigor, and a greater emphasis on quantitative and analytical skills.

“We innovated global consulting projects 18 years ago as a core requirement for all MBA students and we believe that our new curriculum – starting with the Structure of Global Industries – will be a major new innovation on the landscape of global business education,” said Elaine Romanelli, senior associate dean for MBA programs at Georgetown McDonough. “Moreover, while other schools are easing their students into the academic year, we have asked our students to spend their first three weeks immersed in this intense course. I’ve emphasized to them that we are serious about business education, and seriousness starts now.”
