Georgetown BSchool Hires 13 Profs, Says No to Entrepreneurship

According to the Washington Business Journal, Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business has hired 13 new professors for the fall. None teach or research entrepreneurship — well entrepreneurship is mentioned once in the press release, but as an after thought in describing an instructor who does not have a PhD and spent a major part of their career in corporate finance at Lockheed Martin.

I have looked around McDonough’s site and see little regarding entrepreneurship. There appears to be a club and a few classes, but not concentrations, research centers, or entrepreneurship centers. They do host the Mid-Atlantic Business Plan, but the MIT Enterprise Forum actually runs the event.

I just attempted to call the Dean’s Office (George G. Daly) to find out more as Daly was quoted in the article and press release. His office pushed me off to associate Dean Chris Kormis. She was not available. I will hopefully hear back from her soon.

So, at this point, I am not sure why Georgetown didn’t hire any entrepreneurship profs in this hiring spurt. With entrepreneurship being the fastest growing field in business education this appears to go against the trends.
