Master’s in Management Welcomes Diverse Class

The Master’s in Management (MiM) program at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business welcomed its second class in 2020, increasing both the size of the cohort and its diversity across several measures.

“In addition to learning from professors and curricular experiences, we know our students also gain so much knowledge from their interactions with one another,” said Evelyn Williams, MiM academic director and teaching professor of management. “By building a diverse cohort across a host of measures, our students learn how to leverage the strengths of a diverse global team from day one in our program. Performance on global teams is a foundational part of the Georgetown MiM experience — and we are confident that students will gain new perspectives that impact their lives well into the future.”

The MiM Class of 2021 includes 68 students (up from 31 in the inaugural cohort), of which 60% are women (up from 45%), 27% are underrepresented U.S. minorities (up from 13%), and 24% are international. The students represent 21 countries of citizenship (up from 14), with 18 different languages spoken by the students. The new cohort also had an average undergraduate grade-point average of 3.5 and an average GRE score of 311. 

With a mean age of 23 and an average of half a year of work experience, the students come from a variety of undergraduate fields of study, including 45% from the humanities, social sciences, and liberal arts; 35% from business and finance; 13% from STEM disciplines; and 7% from economics. They hail from a wide-range of prestigious undergraduate institutions, including Boston College, Carleton College, College of William & Mary, Columbia University, Georgetown University, Ohio State University, Rutgers University, Smith College, University of Michigan, University of Notre Dame, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, University of San Diego, University of St. Andrews, University of Virginia, Villanova University, Wake Forest University, and Yale University.

Georgetown’s Master of Science in Management program is a 10-month, STEM designated, full-time program designed for recent undergraduates from all backgrounds with 0-3 years of work experience looking for a way to launch their careers. Choosing Georgetown’s Master’s in Management means choosing a globally engaged community with a focus on building the technology and innovation skills necessary to be competitive while doing business for good.
