Overview

The Program

The Foreign Service - Global Business major from Georgetown University offers BSFS students access to courses offered by the McDonough School of Business (MSB) in accounting, international marketing, corporate finance, and business operations. Students are enabled to use the tools from the business disciplines to understand and analyze the firm and the private sector.

Through an integrated learning experience, the aim of the major is to produce a new breed of graduates who are fluent in the global languages of business, politics, economics, and culture. This fluency and the associated analytical capacity should allow graduates to pursue careers in the private and public sectors, non-profits, and academia, and allow them to freely move between those sectors as their careers evolve. Graduates of our GBUS major would be able to understand corporate ethics and social responsibility and how political and economic environments have made these strategic concerns of the global firm.
