Mix of Online and In-Store Purchasing Expected for Holiday Shopping Season Georgetown Business Redesign Debuts with Fall Issue Experts Discuss Trade Partnership as Part of Georgetown on the Hill

The vast majority of consumers will wait in line and shop online to find Thanksgiving deals this year, according to new research by the Georgetown Institute for Consumer Research, sponsored by KPMG. The survey shows consumers increasingly prefer to shop both in stores and online (83 percent) or online only (12 percent). Very few (5 percent) plan to shop solely in brick-and-mortar stores.

The redesigned fall issue of Georgetown Business magazine is out, with features on how alumni are tapping crowdfunding to launch companies; working with the SEC; why attitudes about women in the workforce don't match reality; one alumnus' powerful fight against paralysis; and more.

Industry experts shared their views on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Nov. 6 as part of the Center for Business and Public Policy’s Georgetown on the Hill series. The panel of experts presented a range of views on the trade agreement, with an overall focus on jobs and growth.
