Georgetown MBA program 38th in Financial Times world rankings
Last week, the Financial Times published its list of the world’s best Global MBA Programs (PDF), where it ranked Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business Full-time MBA Program 38th. Up two spots from the 2009 list (PDF), Georgetown’s program snagged a job placement effectiveness ranking of 32nd, a faculty research ranking of 55th, and the “value for the money” ranking of 83rd.
The school’s weighted alumni salary fell only slightly this year, to $121,402, from $121,786. More strikingly, the number of Georgetown MBA students who found employment within three months of graduation dropped drastically from 98 percent in 2009 to 78 percent in 2010.
