U.S. News Ranks Georgetown MBA Top-5 for International Business, Nonprofit Careers

U.S. News & World Report continues to rate the Georgetown McDonough MBA among the nation’s best graduate business programs, with the Full-time MBA ranking 25th and the school’s part-time MBA program ranking 13th. The school also is ranked:

  • 2nd for international business 
  • 5th for careers in nonprofits 
  • 12th for real estate 
  • 20th for entrepreneurship

“Our Full-time and Flex MBA prepare students to become compassionate leaders in a complex, global business environment,” said Prashant Malaviya, senior associate dean for MBA programs. “Through continuous curricular innovations, we strive to incorporate our distinctive qualities — our ability to collaborate with other top-ranked programs within Georgetown University, our Jesuit heritage, and our location in the global capital of Washington, D.C. — to provide a well-rounded educational experience that is unique to Georgetown.”

For the Full-time MBA, U.S. News considers assessments by other business school deans and employers, as well as admissions and employment data for 2019. This year, the program achieved its highest average GMAT score at 694 and saw a nearly $9,000 increase in average starting salary and bonus — increasing to $148,121 from $139,215 last year.

U.S. News gathers a different set of criteria for its part-time MBA rankings: assessments by other business school deans; average GMAT score, undergraduate GPA, and work experience; and the percentage of the entire MBA student body enrolled part time. This year, the Flex MBA saw its average GMAT score advance to being the 10th best in the country.
