Financial Times MBA Ranking

edited January 2009 in Georgetown University
While Georgetown's basketball team may have fallen to #23, its McDonough School of Business is taking up the slack being rated the #18 Full time MBA Program in the United States by the most prestigious international financial journal, the Financial Times. This rating was about 27 places ahead of Notre Dame's Mendoza School and about 32 places ahead of Boston College.

    props to GT but the ranking is a joke.
    check mba forums, everybody will agree with you. it places random spanish schools ahead of kellog, booth and yale..
    can't take this ranking serious. stick with us news & business week.

    It places Wharton, Harvard, Columbia and Stanford as 1-2-3-4 making it dead on accurate. The kind of movers and shakers that read the Financial Times would use Business Week for lining their pet bird's cage.

    You are confusing the US and International rankings. Look at the last page of the supplement in today's paper.

    These international ranings are also pretty accurate.

    You really don't have a clue. Welcome to the world of globalization...and you're exactly the kind of person who doesn't fit in top MBA programs.

    As a b-school prof, who used to run the core in one of the Ivies... I hope your application doesn't reflect your attitude.

    the word "random" was poorly chosen. my apologies. the schools are well respected. i still don't think that these schools are on par with us top schools which is basically what other rankings say.
