As Georgetown McDonough’s first technology-intensive program, the MSF program offers a flexible format that allows students to seek internships, compete for promotions with a current employer, or accept a new position any time between admission and graduation. 

“These remarkable career outcomes are a testament to our students and their ability to leverage the MSF for analytical, technical, consulting, and leadership positions. They showcase an extraordinary return on investment and high brand value of the Georgetown MSF degree among employers,” said Allan Eberhart, founding director of the MSF program, senior associate dean for technology-intensive education, and professor of finance. “They also reflect the tremendous efforts of our faculty, staff, and career management team led by Tom Stowell, who built our career center from scratch in 2015. Now, less than five years later, he and his team set the standard for career centers around the world.”

“It has been a pleasure to work with Allan, the MSF team, our students, and alumni,” said Stowell, associate dean for MSF career management and strategic initiatives. “We run one of the only career centers in the country devoted to MSF students, and I look forward to continuing to innovate and champion the success of our graduates in the years to come.”
