The faculty were very personally engaged with me while I was deployed overseas and made sure that I could reenter the program with the next cohort upon my return. I cannot say enough for the feeling of community they instill. The cohort of students is top notch, diverse, and collaborative. The program is the only EMBA I know that has both strong in residence classwork matching the full-time program and two overseas residency period.
We loved the electives and opportunity to modify the MBA to fit our careers. Some of the electives were so good that they should have been mandatory for all.
The business school made several outstanding improvements to the program over the time I attended (2010-2013). They greatly expanded elective offerings for EMBA students, modified the academic program to make better use of the class day, improved the administrative and logistics support, and modified the final overseas residency to give students more options and add more rigor. This school is on a superb path and should be near the very top of the EMBA rankings.
Make this more challenging. My program was too easy.
Georgetown's Global Residencies are its strongest point. Our Capstone Residency was Student Initiated and Proposed, which was the highlight of the program. Georgetown also carries great brand recognition internationally, and attending class on the main campus made me feel a part of the university and its heritage.
Employers don't pay for EMBA programs anymore, yet EMBA programs still think and act as if companies are funding the cost. Students need to find better ways to make this investment worth the time, effort and cost. Many graduates still wonder if the ROI is there - for me, the ROI evolved from financial to human capital, and I am still optimistic that I will benefit from it, both personally and professionally.
The opportunity to do more than one international residency was great. Georgetown has always attracted top teaching talent and been able to foster a strong sense of community in its graduates. The cohort was also made very diverse by the inclusion of many foreign nationals which added greatly to the experience.
I would have liked more emphasis on entrepreneurship and business development. The practical nature of business should be highlighted and improve on technology business sectors.
The international travel and opportunities to perform real work with organizations in different parts of the world provided for a truly unique experience.
On campus housing for out of town students would have been beneficial.
We did two projects overseas, which greatly enhanced our international business skills. Given that it was in DC we also had a healthy mix of students from across many fields, instead of other programs where everyone comes from Wall St.
The order of the classes could be better arranged to balance work load.
