Bloomberg Businessweek ranked the Georgetown McDonough Full-time MBA 20th in its 2018 Best B-Schools ranking, up 15 positions from last year.

“Georgetown provides the right mix of a rigorous, yet collaborative, academic experience, access to global organizations and leaders in Washington, D.C., and the interdisciplinary approach that emerges from partnerships with the university’s other renowned schools,” said Prashant Malaviya, senior associate dean for MBA programs. “In a ranking that’s measured by reputation and ROI, we are proud to be named among the nation’s best programs.”

Using a new methodology, Bloomberg Businessweek measures schools across four categories: compensation, learning, networking, and entrepreneurship, with metrics based on surveys of alumni, students, and employers, as well as employment data provided by schools.
