  • Meet Georgetown McDonough’s MBA Class of 2017

    If location, like character, is destiny, you won’t a better situation than earning an MBA at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. Just three miles from the White House, McDonough offers a ringside seat to where the action is. But the school doesn’t rest on unparalleled internship opportunities and jaw-dropping speakers. Instead, it focuses on a higher purpose: Translating the university’s Jesuit mission to the rough-and-tumble world of business. Here, the vocation is fashioning students into “nimble innovative thinkers and principled leaders in service to both business and society.”


  • Georgetown MBAs See Salary Boost

    Job placement reports are beginning to trickle in for the class of 2015 and many signs point to a similar message…And now Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business is the newest top B-school to report a salary uptick. Yesterday (Oct. 14), McDonough revealed a 7% increase in average salaries to $108,789. More impressively, average signing bonuses leapt by 15% to $27,219. “Over the past five years, the MBA Career Center has implemented new technologies, certified its staff as career counselors, expanded networking opportunities with alumni, and increased employer interactions,” Doreen Amorosa, associate dean and director of the MBA Career Center, said in a prepared release from the school.


  • The MBA Gatekeeper At McDonough

    When going through the application process for a top business school, it’s a good idea to avoid annoying those who are making the ultimate decisions. It’s best not to spam the entire dean’s suite during a holiday break asking for an admissions response. And it’s advisable to avoid stalking the LinkedIn accounts of 50 alums from your top school and demanding the head of admissions put you in contact with each one. Indeed, applicants to Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business have committed these transgressions – and both received a ding, according to Shari Hubert, associate dean of MBA admissions. What Hubert does recommend is deep reflection on your personal strengths and weaknesses, and working those to your advantage. And if you’re applying to McDonough (or any other B-school) it’s a good idea to show respect toward the staff and the process.
