Georgetown Launching Leadership Fellows Program This Winter

first_img Last Updated Dec 13, 2017 by Max PulciniFacebookTwitterLinkedinemail Georgetown University has announced a Leadership Fellows program for students enrolled in the McDonough School of Business’ full-time MBA program. Open to second-year MBAs, the new program will launch in January 2018.The fellowship’s first cohort is made up of 26 students and takes place over the course of two modules: a coursework module and then a leadership module. Each student must take the Coaching High Performance Teams and Advanced Coaching for Leadership Fellows classes before coaching teams of first-year MBA students through their required Leadership Communications course, and the Executive Challenge final exam.While coaching their fellow business students, fellows will receive guidance from executive coaches to advance their skills and develop their own expertise. Among these educators and executives is Evelyn Williams, the McDonough Professor of Management and program leader. “The program encapsulates the Jesuit principles of leadership and service to others. Fellows will be responsible for the development and maximizing the learning of their first-year student teams,” Williams said.“Think of it as infusing the culture with 26 highly trained executive coaches, and they’re now going to be let loose,” she said. “The sky’s the limit in terms of the impact they’ll have.”Erin McDowell Morton (MBA’18) is among the students accepted in the fellowship’s inaugural class. Morton is excited to work together with others who are also interested in giving back to the McDonough community.“The structure allows us to practice the concepts we’re learning in class and build leadership skills that will make us better employees, managers, and members of the community,” Morton said.McDonough’s full-time MBA is a 21-month, daytime program with one intake of students each year, and the fall semester begins in August. Along with fellowship opportunities like this, students are given the opportunity to participate in four residencies and study abroad opportunities.Find out who the rest of the McDonough Leadership Fellows are here.
