Washington, D.C. -- Georgetown University’s Robert Emmett McDonough School of Business is now accepting applications for the inaugural class of its MBA Evening Program, or MBA-EP. The master’s in business administration degree program will begin in August 2005, with courses taught in six-week modules, and classes meeting two evenings each week to meet the needs of working professionals.
“This program will give early-career working professionals a chance to continue their education in a world class program at a time that fits their schedule,” said McDonough School of Business Interim Dean Reena Aggarwal. “I am happy to see the business school expand our offerings through the MBA Evening Program.”
The MBA-EP is based on Georgetown’s existing full-time MBA and International Executive MBA programs and is designed to develop the critical management skills and tools necessary for career advancement. Students will progress through the program as a cohort, spending the first two years in core classes building a foundation in major business disciplines. During this period students will also take part in regional and international residencies, a hallmark offering of Georgetown’s MBA programs.
Upon completion of the core component, students tailor the program based on their individual needs and interests, selecting from a list of elective courses. Electives are offered across core functional areas of business, providing students with a deep knowledge and expertise beyond the foundational level.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The MBA-EP will admit its first class of students this summer.
