I believe MSFS’s Global Business and Finance concentration is unparalleled. It not only contextualizes the study of business and finance within a rapidly transforming international environment, but also adopts an interdisciplinary approach, affording space for the exploration of germane, cross-sectoral, and emerging global issues. In this regard, I am confident that MSFS will be invaluable in empowering me to thrive in a career at the intersection of business and development focused on emerging markets.
"While graduate study at Georgetown University will enable me to fulfill my intellectual pursuits and professional aspirations, it is a privilege–above all–to study at a school that espouses leadership, creativity, ethics, and service as its core values.”
