Financial Times Ranks Georgetown MBA #17 for Finance

In a new listing of the top MBAs for finance, the Financial Times ranks Georgetown McDonough’s Full-time program 17th in the U.S. and 32nd in the world.

“Georgetown McDonough has a strong reputation in the global finance industry,” said Prashant Malaviya, senior associate dean for MBA programs. “Year over year, financial services is a top destination for graduates, and our top marks in this ranking for the number of alumni who continue to succeed in the industry demonstrate the value of our strong alumni network.”

The ranking pulls from data collected as part of the 2017 Global MBA ranking and assesses programs along 13 criteria, including alumni salary, salary increase, and career progression, as well as research published by faculty in top finance journals. The ranking also considered the proportion of alumni employed in finance with attention to those who continued a career in finance or transitioned to one after graduation.
