Business and the Economy

Georgetown is home to a variety of leading experts and teaching and learning opportunities related to the global economy.

The McDonough School of Business offers a dynamic range of programs in undergraduate, graduate, and executive business education that engage international issues. Faculty and programs in Georgetown’s other schools—from the Economics Department in the College to the Walsh School of Foreign Service and the Law Center—also address business and the global economy across disciplinary perspectives, with attention to their ethical dimensions. Georgetown’s Washington, D.C. location enables faculty and students to engage with the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and other leading economic institutions.
