Georgetown’s full-time MBA Program yields a general management degree that provides students with the functional knowledge and intellectual skills to manage and lead an organization. Each incoming class is divided into cohorts of approximately 60 students who share core classes and student activities.

In the fall semester of the first year, students take a number of core courses, ranging from financial accounting and applied business statistics to organizational behavior and management communication. In the spring of the first year, students begin to tailor the curriculum to their interests and professional goals by taking elective courses in addition to core. Throughout the second year, student coursework is almost entirely made up of electives.

In addition to regular coursework, students complete four residencies—intensive, week-long courses that challenge students to put their learning to work in simulated and real-world business experiences. During one residency, the Global Residency, student consulting teams tackle a problem for real-world international corporations and travel abroad to present their work to the client’s senior leadership.

Ranking Analysis:

Georgetown’s McDonough School held on to its Poets&Quants’ inaugural rank of 23rd in 2011 despite losing ground in two of the four major rankings published in the year. If not for this slippage in the Forbes and U.S. News lists, McDonough would have overtaken the University of Southern California’s Marshall School which sat in 22nd place. Even so, the school managed to narrow the gap to a mere .4 of a point in the index numbers underlying the rank from a full three points a year earlier.
