Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Like most MBA programs, the Georgetown MBA FT program is academically rigorous; especially in the first semester. For students without any prior business background or coursework, taking the Accounting, Finance, and Statistics courses at the same time may seem daunting. Thankfully, many classmates will be super friendly CPAs and former Corporate Finance execs eager to help. The collegial atmosphere extends to career development, where we are known to collaborate to help each other prep for interview sessions even when competing for the same position. We believe in a positive karma! The Georgetown network (even beyond the business school - incl undergraduate and SFS alumni) is incredible and students are generally able to contact and network with alumni from other graduate programs for job placement purposes.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

My program is online but instead of just assigning various assignments we have sessions that are interactive so that it still feels like a class session. One of the best experiences that I have had with online classes and has truly exceeded my expectations.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The biggest pro of the Sports Industry Management program is that all of our professors currently work or have worked in the sports industry. They are able to give us credible feedback and help students network. The biggest con of the program is that most of our project schedules are the same for every class, so the work load can be a bit overwhelming, but doable.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown University Law Center has an excellent Law program with a truly international focus. Students here are from over eighty countries, particularly those of us doing the Master in Laws. We share experiences with many JD and US trained students in our classes and as part of campus life. The faculty and administrative staff are supportive and responsive, with world class experience. There is a dedicated Graduate Career Development office that provides career guides, workshops and individualized support to help us with the US market job hunt and internships/externships (although the hiring opportunities for foreign trained graduates are very slim, modestly considered by some alumni I spoke with, to be less than 10% of a class of 200). The only challenge is the general separation if the Law School from the Main campus and ofcourse the cost of education and campus housing. DC is an expensive place, but what can be said for a driven student from an under-represented home region and diverse ethnic background..work hard and search for scholarships like a job!

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is very good, MS in Physiology and Biophysics. It is very demanding and challenging, with a strict curriculum that strongly prepare you to be competitive in sciences, it is focus on human health. As I said the academic program is excellent, but extremely expensive as well as the area. DC is a very expensive place to live, which mean an economic overload even for basic expenses.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgetown's Security Studies Program is a fantastic mix of theory and practice -- the professors make themselves available to students for advice related to (or not related to!) the course of study despite many of them being current practitioners in the field. Highly recommend!

Degree: Real Estate Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the MPS-Real Estate program at Georgetown University is building a foundation in all aspects real estate that I'm using to pursue a career in affordable housing development. Our cities need to have viable, subsidized housing to create diverse places to live. Georgetown's curriculum is incredibly geared toward making decisions based on morals which has significantly impacted my career decisions.
