Georgetown’s interdisciplinary approach to global business and international politics originated with the trade and diplomacy studies programs pioneered by the School of Foreign Service in the early part of the twentieth century. At a time when business schools concentrated almost exclusively on domestic commerce, Georgetown realized that the world of business was becoming increasingly global. From its beginning, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business has continually strengthened its innovative approach to executive education. More than a decade ago, the school introduced international residencies and integrative courses as key components of its Executive MBA programs. Today, the McDonough School of Business is known worldwide for its strengths in strategy, international business, global logistics, and finance The McDonough School of Business has been ranked No. 3 in the United States and No. 17 worldwide for its Executive Education Customised Programs by the Financial Times in 2014.
