An executive MBA gives you a panoply of choices. It really deepens your learning, and at that time of your career, you know more of where you want to be and what you're really missing in terms of skill sets... For example, to be relevant in the world, you need to understand global supply chain. You need to understand the different sort of the interconnectivity of our world in a financial context. And I think Georgetown is the place to do that.

What we bring, as Georgetown, to this part of the world is a unique and a very exceptional dynamic and that is excellence in education, but also values and culture, the network and the alumni, as well as the access to individuals around the world - which are bar none to other institutions.

Georgetown was the launchpad for me to get into the corporate space and at the top of the finest institutions. I think whether you go into the public sector or the private sector, Georgetown's ROI is unmatched.
