Georgetown University Part-Time MBA Program Structure

The Georgetown University part-time MBA at the McDonough School of Business is a 36-month program specifically designed to support working professionals. The Georgetown McDonough Flex program features the same curriculum and faculty, and confers the same degree received by graduates of Georgetown’s full-time MBA Program. With a convenient class schedule that meets on campus Monday through Thursday evenings, students experience hands-on learning in a close-knit, collaborative environment that strengthens their professional and personal networks.


All Georgetown University part-time MBA students begin by taking individual core classes, including accounting, decision sciences, economics, finance, marketing, and management. Starting in the second year, students begin to tailor the curriculum to meet their interests and current or future professional needs by taking elective courses, in addition to core classes.

The degree culminates in the Global Business Experience–an application of everything students have learned in their coursework and careers. Teams of students work with faculty members and senior management at multinational organizations to define their projects, solve a pressing business problem, and travel to the client’s facilities to present their recommendations.

In recent years, teams have traveled to Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, India, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, and Vietnam and worked for clients ranging from 3M and Philips Electronics to the World Bank and Yahoo!. These professional-level consulting projects build upon students’ experiences, talents, connections, and careers.
