U.S. News Ranks Georgetown Undergraduate Business Program 19th in the Nation

August 19, 2010

The 2011 edition of U.S. News & World Report has named the undergraduate program at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business as 19th in the nation, up two positions from last year’s ranking, in its “America’s Best Colleges” issue. The undergraduate ranking is based on assessment surveys sent to deans and senior faculty at business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

“Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business prides itself on emphasizing an ethical and social justice perspective with a global mindset,” said Norean R. Sharpe, undergraduate dean. “It is gratifying to see that our peers recognize the excellent quality of our faculty and program.”
In addition, the Georgetown’s undergraduate business program was 7th on the magazine’s list of schools with strong international business programs.
New to the program this year is the First Year Seminar, which is a way for first-year students at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business to explore the nature of scholarship, think about important ideas in business, and foster intellectual and personal growth while adapting to the rigor of college-level courses. During this inaugural year, the program will offer five seminars for 20 students each and will culminate with a case competition.
