Focus on Diversity

Join us for Georgetown McDonough's annual Focus on Diversity event: a special program designed to engage top-performing women, U.S. underrepresented minorities, and LGBTQ+ students with our inclusive Full-time and Flex MBA (part-time) community. Highlights include an admissions case study, an overview of our MBA Career Center, networking opportunities, and so much more.

We are excited for a day full of dynamic and special programming that will be kicked off by our keynote speaker, Alicia Petross, Chief Diversity Officer at The Hershey Company. We are also pleased to offer an MBA mock class with Debora Thompson, Professor of Marketing.

We encourage you to review the Focus on Diversity Agenda
