Shelley Heinrich, Director of Admissions and Marketing at Georgetown MBA explains about Integrative Learning, and the advantages of Washington D.C as an MBA and Post-MBA destination.
Washington D.C opens up lot of opportunities. Can you give us some insights on the post-MBA opportunities in US?
Our Washington, D.C. location enables Business, Government, and International Leaders myriad opportunities to connect with our Georgetown MBA talent. For example, students who are interested in working at the cross section of business and policy have the advantage of being in close proximity to key organizations representing the public sector.
There are many great schools, but there are few that are located in a city as powerful as Washington, D.C. The City is home to more than 177 embassies, The World Bank Group (International Finance Corporation, World Bank, etc.), the U.S. Federal Government, and the IMF, providing access and networking opportunities that often lead to internship and full-time employment. Washington, D.C., also has the highest concentration of Fortune 500 companies per capita in the United States.
Additionally, students have the opportunity to complete professor-led tutorials, gaining academic credit for completing a project with an organization in D.C., like The World Bank. We also have fantastic certificates like the International Business Diplomacy Certificate and the Certificate in Non-Market Strategy that allow students to understand business with a perspective bigger than just the bottom line.
Given Georgetown's focus on creating principled leaders with a global mindset, the opportunities to work with international organizations right here in Washington, D.C. are appealing.
Students complete internships and secure full-time positions at organizations such as the IFC, Inter-American Development Bank, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, U.S. Treasury Department, Department of Energy and more.
Tell us a little bit more about Integrative Learning.
Business doesn’t happen in silos, and neither should learning be. When you learn about economics, you’re also likely talking about topics related to supply chain or strategy. When you’re discussing finance, topics of strategy and accounting often are woven throughout. Classes build upon one another, and your knowledge grows exponentially over semesters because of this integrative learning. You also may study a case about the airline industry in a marketing class and then study a similar case about the airline industry in a strategy case, so you are getting a true 360-degree holistic view of the business.
Learning about business, however, doesn’t just happen in the classroom. There are many experiential opportunities that allow you to practice concepts learned from class. Students all consult for an international company through the Global Business Experience. They work for 6-8 weeks in Washington, D.C., consulting with the company remotely and then travel for a week abroad to present their consulting recommendations to leadership at their assigned company. This provides a truly global understanding of how business operates across cultures.
Recent project locations included Brazil, China, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Peru, Spain, and the United Arab Emirates. Students consulted with such companies as Citi, Cohen & Steers, Dell, Deloitte, Embraer, Ferrovial, Lamborghini, L’Oreal, Mahindra & Mahindra, O’Coffee, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, and Tourneau. Projects range from market entry to finance, supply chains, strategy, real estate, operations, entrepreneurship, and E-commerce.
