Washington, D.C. -Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business moved up three places on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best business schools in the country. In "America’s Best Graduate Schools 2010," the school ranked 19th among U.S. MBA programs, up from 22nd last year.

"We long have known that the McDonough School of Business' MBA programs are among the best in the country, as our students are studying an outstanding curriculum from faculty who are true leaders in their respective fields," said Dean George G. Daly. "With our new, state-of-the-art building opening this spring, I believe that the McDonough School of Business experience will continue to receive national recognition."
