Professional Development

The Georgetown Difference

Through expert instruction and hands-on experimentation, Georgetown University students and alumni are stretching the limits of leading human resources practices to make the most of diverse resources, rapidly emerging technologies and new ways of analyzing, modeling and driving more strategic human capital management policies, programs and work environments.

The HRM program teaches students to take their careers to the next level – as well-rounded HR business partners.

Solid internship programs provide a competitive edge for students and serve as vital, high-touch recruiting strategies for employers. The Human Resources Management program provides students with the latest information and resources on internship opportunities, and students benefit from the strong Georgetown alumni network in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
