Bloomberg Businessweek Ranks the Georgetown MBA 19th in the U.S.

Bloomberg Businessweek ranked the Georgetown McDonough Full-time MBA 19th in its 2019 Best B-Schools ranking, up one position from last year.

This is the second year Bloomberg has used a new methodology, which measures schools across four categories: compensation, learning, networking, and entrepreneurship, with metrics based on surveys of alumni, students, and corporate recruiters, as well as employment data provided by schools. 

Georgetown McDonough saw its largest gain in the learning category, advancing to 15th this year from 28th last year. It also ranked 18th for networking, 20th for compensation, and 30th for entrepreneurship.

“At Georgetown McDonough, we seek to be innovative and responsive in our approach to teaching and learning, and recent enhancements to the curriculum — from our new Leading Teams for Performance and Impact core course to new electives in the areas of analytics and data visualization — are reflected in the Bloomberg results,” said Prashant Malaviya, senior associate dean for MBA programs. “Our continued recruitment successes also validate that the Georgetown MBA is valued by employers around the world.”
