January 26, 2010

School Advances Two Positions in the Global MBA Ranking

The Financial Times 2010 ranking of Global MBA Programs lists Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business MBA Full-Time Program 38th in the world, up from No. 40 last year. The school also was named the third best for international business, up from No. 4 in 2009.

Georgetown’s ranking includes increases in the alumni placement success rank, the number of female students attending the school, and the number of faculty articles published in academic research journals. The Financial Times takes into account alumni career progress, diversity, and idea generation when determining its Global MBA Program rankings.

Over the past year, Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business added 16 new faculty positions, enhanced opportunities for faculty research, and opened the new Rafik B. Hariri Building, an $82.5 million state-of-the-art facility that houses the school’s undergraduate and graduate business programs.
