The Princeton Review has released another set of lists, this time ranking Master of Business Administration programs. Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business was featured on the “Best Career Prospects” list as the nation’s fourth-best program.
The 300 school, 19,000 student survey placed the Penn’s Wharton School, Harvard University, and Stanford University as first, second, and third, respectively.
Respondents to the survey said that Georgetown’s MBA program offered a global perspective that makes it unique. Georgetown’s high number of speakers in the business field and active alumni also contributed to the high ranking. In addition, students praised the opportunity to take courses at the University’s Public Policy Institute and School of Foreign Service.
“Georgetown MBA is located in the center of the government, business and non-profit worlds,” one student testimonial reads. “Everyone contributes a unique perspective.”
