McDonough School of Business

Every business school teaches students about markets, efficiency, and profitability. At Georgetown McDonough, we take it a step further: we teach our students to use the tools of business, management, and leadership to enhance their careers and to serve the common good.

Building on distinctive strengths to make a better world

There is no school better suited to this work than Georgetown McDonough, part of the nation’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit university seated in its most influential city.

Today, we are called to educate a new generation of capable, creative, and conscientious business leaders. To make the most of our Washington, D.C., location, global mindset, and deep academic expertise. To shape the fields defining the future of business. We are called to be not only the best in the world, but the best for the world.

Philanthropy will ensure that Georgetown McDonough can maximize its impact, by competing successfully for the best student talent; investing in the exceptional faculty and centers crucial to providing distinctive educational experiences; collaborating across disciplines to address society’s greatest challenges; and making a direct social and economic impact in and beyond our D.C. community.
