Washington, D.C. - In The Financial Times' inaugural ranking of 50 global executive MBA programs, Georgetown's McDonough IEMBA program ranks 13th among U.S. executive MBA programs, and 22nd among programs globally.

The Financial Times surveyed alumni from the Class of 1998 on the performance (salary and ability to meet career objectives) of the executive MBA program (50%), diversity among students, faculty and board members (30%), and the school's research performance (20%).

Georgetown IEMBA graduates saw a five-year salary increase (from the beginning of a program until three years after graduation) of 70 percent over their pre-program salaries. Three years after graduation, they earn an average salary of $132,304.

"We are pleased to be recognized by The Financial Times as one of the leading executive MBA programs," says Christopher Puto, dean of the McDonough School. "This ranking underscores the strong reputation the Georgetown executive MBA enjoys in the global marketplace."
