Executive Custom Programs Rank #10 in U.S. by the Financial Times

Georgetown McDonough’s Executive Custom Programs retains its top-10 U.S. standing in 2020 Financial Times Executive Education ranking.

The Financial Times uses surveys of schools and individual clients to tabulate its ranking. This year, McDonough ranked 2nd among U.S. schools for growth and 12th globally. It also continues to be in the top-10 domestically for many of the measures, including program design and preparation, teaching methods, new skills and learning, aims achieved, and value for money.

“Developing and retaining top talent in organizations’ management and leadership ranks is more critical now than ever before,” said Michael O’Leary, senior associate dean for custom executive education. “During this year of health, economic, and social crises, we have created new programs and modified existing ones to engage participants in the United States and across the world through carefully crafted programs, which blend the best of synchronous and asynchronous learning.”

McDonough’s Executive Custom Programs draws expertise from across Georgetown University and the extensive Washington, D.C., network of business and policy leaders to create programs for clients that address numerous themes, including global leadership, change and innovation management, business analytics, stakeholder engagement, and corporate responsibility.
