Georgetown MBA Continues Sharp Climb in Rankings

March 30, 2007

Washington, DC -- Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business continues to do well on the lists of the best U.S. business schools. Adding to recent rankings gains in Business Week, The Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, the school jumped nine places to #25 in the latest issue of US News and World Report. The collective gain across these publications is unprecedented in McDonough's history.

Georgetown's move into the group of elite business schools reflects key strengths, including:

  • The impact of the business school's revamped office of career management.
  • The student body's enthusiastic support of the school's new management team, assembled under the leadership of Dean George Daly.
  • Recognition of McDonoughs willingness to create innovative new approaches to global management education.
  • The contributions of a world-class faculty.
  • The University's commitment to a new $100 million facility, due to open in early 2009.
  • McDonough's position as the premier business school in Washington, DC, an increasingly important destination for global business.
  • The US News ranking is based on surveys of business school deans and corporate recruiters and takes into account such measures as average undergraduate GPAs, GMAT scores and mean starting salaries.
