Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business is accepting applications for the second cohort of its Executive MBA program at the DIFC Academy in Dubai. The program will begin in September 2024.
Georgetown admitted 53 candidates for the first cohort which began this September. The course follows four broad areas: core foundations, regional expertise, future focus, and immersive experiences. It seeks to train leaders in public or private organizations in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA) region and beyond.
McDonough’s presence in DIFC reinforces its role as a global leader in business education, offering a unique blend of regional expertise and global perspective. A relatively new degree to the region, the program aligns with the UAE’s ‘We the UAE 2031’ vision, contributing to a knowledge-based economy and enhancing the UAE’s status as a major economic hub.
“The overwhelming response to our first Executive MBA cohort in Dubai underscores the region’s demand for high-caliber business education. This second cohort is a testament to our commitment to nurturing leadership and entrepreneurship in the Middle East,” says Paul Almeida, Dean and William R. Berkley Chair at McDonough. “We are particularly excited about the diverse backgrounds of our students, which enrich the learning experience and foster a unique perspective on global business challenges.”
Georgetown University’s Executive MBA program at DIFC is not only a cornerstone of academic excellence but also a key contributor to the DIFC Academy’s mission of driving innovation across all aspects of the financial services industry. Equipping graduates to lead with innovation and foresight, the program offers elective courses that encompass a range of topics prioritized by the UAE for its economic growth, including sustainability and AI development.
