Student & Graduate Reviews

2.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The vast network available in the sports industry cannot be beat. Unfortunately, there is not much financial assistance.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of this program is that the caliber of professors that teach in the program are industry professionals. You learn from first hand experience and can apply book knowledge to real life. The cons are that you are not on main campus because they just built a brand new building in the middle of downtown.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2012

School is in the best location for students interested in government, public interest, or international work. Pros: knowledgeable and accessible faculty, nation-wide alumni network, wide selection of courses and academic opportunities, prestige, location, large career services staff with a separate public interest career office, and one of the best loan repayment programs in the country. Cons: DC is expensive, popular classes are large, and it could be more diverse.

At McDonough school of business, we all take pride in the very collaborative culture here. Academically its a very strong and intensive program with great focus on leadership and ethics. The new dean revamped the program and put in on track to be one of the best programs in United States. We take having fun very seriously and there is beer and pizza to unwind every Thursday. Also, being in Washington D.C. provides great networking opportunities and rub shoulders with who and who of business and politics. As for cons, D.C. is pricey, so consider your living expenses while making the decision. Also few students might find the academic environment too intensive to their taste.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The full-time MBA program at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business has a rigorous curriculum with a strong global business focus. The student body is diverse, with many nationalities and professional backgrounds represented - this leads to engaging discussions in class and in group work settings. Students in the program place especially well into consulting and financial services industries for both summer internships and full-time positions.

The McDonough MBA Program offers a challenging, collaborative environment with great faculty, supportive staff, exceptional facilities, a diverse student body, and a large array of extracurricular activities. The classes teach many practical skills that prepare students to succeed in a wide variety of business professions. The program is incredibly rewarding!

McDonough is a great program with a great community! The staff and faculty have created a quality environment - but the students really make the school wonderful! A great network for now and the future.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Great student community, tons of support from classmates, rigorous academics and easy access to professors, location in DC, heavy student involvement in clubs/extracurriculars, strong leadership from the dean and general sense that school is moving upward in the rankings Cons: somewhat disjointed administration and career services, does not leverage employer network as much as it should, noncompetitive financial aid vs. other schools, tough academics sometimes considered more important than the career search
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great program for anyone who is switching function or field. Classes encourage you to draw upon and use your previous experience as well as give you new tools. In general, you will not end up an industry expert but will be comfortable entering most careers you choose. The school focuses on finance and consulting (especially the career office), but also provide a lot of strong academic background in marketing, strategy, operations, and entrepreneurship. If you are not coming here for your one of the two core tracks, be prepared to be resourceful. The resources are there, but you will need to be a lot more proactive.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgetown is a great business program and you'll get an amazing education. However, it's a very rigorous program, and it's still a growing and changing program. I don't think it's reached its full potential, but I think it's way under-ranked for the quality of education you get.
