Special programs offered to recruit underrepresented students or students with disadvantaged backgrounds:Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business places great emphasis on building a diverse community. The MBA Program is an inclusive environment that looks for diversity in the broadest possible terms, including personal and professional backgrounds, ethnicity, gender, religious affiliation, and sexual orientation. The school believes that a diversity of thought enriches the learning experience. Recently, Georgetown McDonough became the 18th member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, which is the nation's largest diversity network that connects top-tier students from leading MBA programs to some of the nation's most respected corporate partners. Prospective MBA students also are invited to campus to attend Focus on Diversity – a special program designed to engage top-performing Full-Time and Evening MBA candidates from diverse communities. Focus on Diversity welcomes women and members of the International, LGBT, Military, and Minority communities to campus to learn how a Georgetown MBA can support their professional and personal endeavors. The MBA Program Admissions team collaborates with current MBA students from several diverse organizations including the Black MBA Association, the Hispanic and Latin American Student Association, Georgetown Women in Business, Gay and Lesbian Alliance, and the McDonough Military Association as we prepare for the event. This day-long event explores the value of an MBA degree and provides in-depth exposure to our unique community of achievement, global mindset, and focus on ethical leadership. Included on the agenda are a class led by one of our notable professors, panel discussions featuring alumni and current students, a distinguished keynote speaker, a Career Center breakout session, an admissions presentation, an informal networking reception with Georgetown MBA community members, and optional evening activities with student clubs.
