Welcome from the Academic Leadership

We welcome your interest in the Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) program.

Our program presents a unique opportunity for you to enhance your management and leadership skills while strengthening your ability to solve the complex problems of a highly globalized business world.

We have designed this senior executive program to make the most of the expertise of three world-class schools: Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, the Walsh School of Foreign Service, ESADE Business School, and INCAE Business School. Our combined strengths in global business strategy and management, policymaking, international relations and leadership make GEMBA an exceptional program. We have built on these strengths, developing a curriculum to focus on the concepts, techniques, tools and subjects most relevant to the global executive. We have also created an environment where you can work closely with your peers, blend insights from leading academics with those of innovators in business and government, and apply what you learn to the everyday challenges of your organization. With sessions around the world, you will have an opportunity to learn through immersion, interaction and networking with colleagues and organizations in advanced and emerging economies.
