November 26, 2012

This year, the Financial Times Executive MBA rankings include two programs from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.

In its debut on the list, the Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA program ranked 19th in the world. Georgetown McDonough’s Executive MBA program is 35th in the world and 7th among U.S. stand-alone programs. The Executive MBA also fared well among other U.S. schools in several categories, including being 1st for alumni salary increase, 7th for alumni aims achieved, 9th for alumni salary, and 11th for alumni career progress.

“Georgetown McDonough is proud to offer two highly ranked Executive MBA programs to help today’s fast-paced executives gain the additional skills, knowledge, and confidence to emerge as global leaders,” said Paul Almeida, senior associate dean for executive education. “This ranking, in particular, shows how an Executive MBA from Georgetown correlates to career success.”

Financial Times produces the Executive MBA ranking through surveys of alumni and the individual business schools. Programs are evaluated on the following criteria: alumni salary figures and percentage salary increase, alumni career progress and aims achieved as a result of their degree, faculty research, percentage of faculty with doctorates, percentage of international and women faculty members, student work experience, percentage of international and women students, international course experience, percentage of international and women board members, and number of languages students are required to speak upon graduation.

The Georgetown McDonough Executive MBA combines faculty expertise in international business and other disciplines taught at Georgetown with the school’s relationships with prominent Washington, D.C., institutions. Students learn through two international and domestic residencies, including the Global Capstone Residency, during which student teams travel the world to study the impact of globalization at the country, industry, and firm levels. This is in addition to the program’s longstanding signature Global Residency that features international consulting projects in locations including Turkey, Dubai/UAE, China, and India. Learn more.

The Georgetown-ESADE Global Executive MBA is a partnership among Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business and Walsh School of Foreign Service and the acclaimed ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain.
