Georgetown Entrepreneurship and Your MBA
You already know you’re capable of greatness. But wondering just how much you could achieve isn’t enough. To truly have an impact on the world, you have to go find out exactly what you’re made of. When you earn your MBA here, you’ll no longer wonder how much you could accomplish. Instead, you’ll know.
The Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative (GUEI) is proud to work alongside the faculty and staff of the McDonough School of Business to provide an entrepreneurial education that is truly global in its reach, hands-on in its approach, and world-class in its quality. Our combination of seasoned instructors teaching a variety of in-depth courses alongside our MBA Georgetown Entrepreneurship & Venture Capital Club, prestigious fellowships, extracurricular opportunities, and an expansive alumni network has resulted in an entrepreneurship ecosystem unique to McDonough and nearly unparalleled in the world.
