Undergraduate Program Advances in Businessweek Ranking

Undergraduate Businessweek Ranking

Businessweek has named Georgetown McDonough’s Undergraduate Program 17th in the nation – one position higher than its previous ranking in 2014.

Additionally, the program is ranked 4th for average starting salaries, 14th for the percentage of students with business-related internships, and 17th for student satisfaction.

This year, Businessweek revised its methodology to focus exclusively on output metrics, including starting salaries, internships, student surveys, and employer surveys.

“Our Undergraduate Program performed at an outstanding level,” said Norean R. Sharpe, senior associate dean for undergraduate programs. “While this ranking emphasizes results, these program outcomes would not be possible without the work that our faculty and staff dedicate toward academic excellence and transformational curricular and co-curricular programs.”

Known for its emphasis on global business, principled leadership, and service, Georgetown McDonough’s Undergraduate Program provides an array of programs designed to prepare students to excel in their careers after graduation, ranging from the First Year Seminar to the new Global Business Fellows Program.

Last year, the school also opened its own Office of Professional Development for undergraduate business majors, which provides additional resources and mentoring to McDonough’s students as they prepare for internship and job searches.
