Georgetown McDonough has advanced to 16th in the United States and 28th in the world in the Financial Times ranking of top MBA programs for finance.

In addition, McDonough’s Full-time MBA was recognized as 1st in the United States and 6th in the world for the percentage salary increase alumni saw from before entering the program to three years after graduation.

 “With more than a quarter of our graduates each year accepting financial services positions, Georgetown MBA alumni have built a strong reputation within the industry,” said Prashant Malaviya, senior associate dean for MBA programs. “We also are proud for our top ranking for salary increase, demonstrating the solid return on investment from the MBA experience.”

The ranking pulls from data collected as part of the 2018 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.
