The Future of Business Education
12:00-1:45pm. Dean David Thomas, Dean of the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University will talk about the future of business education. Given the increasingly global nature of business, are we teaching what students need for a global world? Dean Thomas will address how the corporate sector can be incorporated into business education so that graduates have a better understanding of how business works in the real world. He will also outline how to ensure diversity with international players around the world, with some interesting research findings on global trends in business and culture. And how principled leadership and service is increasingly important in business education - that it takes more than just profits to be a global business leader, service to business and society also matters.
Established in 1789, Georgetown was founded on the Jesuit principles of equality, respect and Cura Personalis , or education of the whole person. The McDonough School of Business' rigorous academic program is supported by a strong culture that encourages students to collaborate, forge close friendships, and extend their learning outside of the classroom and beyond campus.
