Full-Time Program Advances in Financial Times Global MBA Ranking

January 29, 2013

The Full-time MBA Program at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business advanced to 18th in the United States and 40th in the world in the Financial Times Global MBA Ranking, released on Monday, January 28, 2013.

Last year, the program was listed at 19th in the United States and 43rd in the world. This year’s success can be attributed to large jumps in the areas of alumni salary increases, the percentage of students employed by three months after graduation, increases in the number of women among the student body and faculty, the international experience gained by those in the program, and the amount of faculty research published in top-tier academic journals.

The Financial Times takes into account alumni career progress, diversity, and idea generation when determining its Global MBA Rankings.
