Fortune Magazine "50 Best Business Schools for Getting Hired"

February 21, 2007

Fortune magazine online has just published the 50 Best Business Schools for Getting Hired 2007." Georgetown placed 16th on the list, with an average starting post-MBA salary of $87,816, and an average of two job offers per student.

The ranking is based on each school's reputation with recruiters and on the perceived strength of career placement within the program. To determine recruiter ratings, 445 MBA hiring managers were surveyed and to establish a school's career placement strength, MBA schools were surveyed to find what percentage of their students are employed within 3 months of graduation, the average number of employment offers per student, and the average salary upon graduation. The final numbers are used to determine how well each school does at placing students in careers.

This latest recognition from Fortune highlights an upward trend for Georgetown's performance in business school rankings. In the last year, McDonough's ranking has climbed in the Financial Times, Business Week, and The Wall Street Journal. This development reflects the excellent work being done by Career Management at the McDonough School.
