I'm an executive, M b. A student at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business. I started in the fall of 2019, and I'm about to graduate here in May 2021. Today I'm going to tell you a bit about who I am and why I chose Georgetown. I tried to move away a couple of times, but the D C area just kept calling me back. I come from a strong military family with two Air Force parents and my mother's a Georgetown alum as well. I knew that getting an NBA was the right choice for me because I wanted to talk to your education and I wanted to make a solid investment in myself. I chose Georgetown because of the schools powerful brand, the Impressive alumni network, And I also knew that I would be getting a holistic education. There is a reputation for ethical leadership and strong values, not to mention Georgetown is the top rated executive, M B, A program in the D. C area. I wanted a local program where I can work and go to school and not have to travel. I knew that I was coming to Georgetown and it would allow me to learn from a diverse group of leaders, and I was right. My cohort includes entrepreneurs, consultants as well as leaders in sales, design and even non profits. I also chose Georgetown because I knew the school would have professors with the most current industry knowledge and who would be able to guide us on the current direction of the business world. I had a professor who was the C F. O of a Fortune 50 company and have had multiple professors who have consulted for top firms based on their own industry research. After deciding on Georgetown, I evaluated both the part time and the executive program but found that the executive program was the best fit for me. I wanted to finish in two years, and I was also traveling quite a bit at the time and found that the bi weekly Friday Saturday schedule works best and was most accommodating for my schedule. The executive, M. B A. I love that the program was taught from the perspective of a CEO and focused on how to make strong decisions to lead an organization. Getting an NBA turned out to be the best decision for me, and I've really enjoyed my Georgetown experience. I hope that as you are going through this journey and that you are making your decision that you consider Georgetown, it could potentially be as great of a place for you as it was for me.
