Executive Learning on Location
The current business environment requires operations within an international context, and those looking for hands-on experience in other countries might consider the exciting new executive management program created by Georgetown University and ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain. Known as the Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA, the program will be offered by Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business and Walsh School of Foreign Service with ESADE Business School. It will be delivered in six 11-day modules on four continents, and is designed to meet the needs of accomplished executives whose scope of work is global.
According to a press release from Georgetown announcing the launch, The Global EMBA has been developed using the expertise of the McDonough School in inter-disciplinary teaching and international residencies, ESADE’s know-how in executive leadership, social innovation and international business as well as the Walsh School’s recognized leadership in the area of international relations and global policy. The result is an intellectual challenge and an academic experience that goes beyond classrooms, cases and textbooks. The program is believed to be the first of its kind to include a strong global policy dimension within an executive business degree.
“This program will give accomplished executives a chance to both crystallize their professional experience and better understand the complexities of global business in a world-class program that is adapted to their schedule,” said McDonough School of Business Dean George Daly. “I am excited about this new Global MBA program, the result of our collaboration with ESADE Business School.”
The Georgetown-ESADE EMBA program will begin in Washington, D.C. in June 2008, with subsequent modules in Barcelona, Buenos Aires/Sao Paolo, Bangalore, Barcelona/Moscow, and Washington/New York over a 16-month period. Successful participants will receive two Masters of Business Administration degrees from Georgetown University and ESADE Business School.
Applications are now being accepted for the inaugural class, and the complete program fee for 2008/9 is 85,000 euros ($120,000 USD). The three application deadlines are February 28, April 1, and May 15, 2008. Participants will be notified of acceptance within two weeks of their admissions interview.
