This is a time of great academic and program innovation in the School and the University, particularly in the areas of international business, business and society, and interdisciplinary studies. Our new Senior Associate Dean will help Georgetown University meet its mission: “to develop and educate principled leaders with a global mindset to be in service to business and society.”
