Participant Criteria
Registration for executive certificate programs is subject to acceptance by the Georgetown McDonough Office of Executive Education and is dependent upon available space. The Office of Executive Education monitors the balance of industries, regions, functions, and experience in each program in order to optimize the learning experience for participants, particularly for certificate programs geared toward specific industries or levels of professional experience.

All programs will be delivered in English, unless otherwise stated; therefore, participants must be able to comprehend and converse in English.

In accordance with university policy, Georgetown University provides educational opportunities without regard to and does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, disability, family responsibility, familial status, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital status, national origin, personal appearance, political affiliation, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, source of income, veteran’s status, or any other factors prohibited by law.

Fees and Payments
Fees are due upon acceptance into the program. We accept credit cards (VISA or MasterCard only), wire transfers, and checks made payable to “Georgetown University” with the name of the program written on the memo line. Program fees must be paid in full prior to the program start date. Program fees cover tuition, program materials, lunches, and breaks.

Pricing Structure and Group Registration
The Office of Executive Education at the McDonough School of Business offers the following pricing structure:

  • Single registrant - published price
  • Georgetown University alumni - 20% fee reduction
  • NGO, government, or organization with multiple participants to the same class - 10% fee reduction

Fee reductions for multiple individuals from the same organization apply to registrations only when they are received at the same time and are for the same specific program offering. Program discounts cannot be combined for one participant. The Global Advanced Management Program and the Global Emerging Leaders Program are excluded from all special offers.
For questions about which discount applies or when there are more than five registrants from the same organization, please contact Lindsay deCastrique at msbexeced@georgetown.edu.
