Hoya MBA 2014


This review is for McDonough

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2014

Experience during the program

While consistently ranked as a top 25 MBA program, MSB is truly a "hidden" gem relative to the rest of the top 25. All the resources are there for students to pursue whatever career path they desire - it's up to the students to put in the effort. Nothing is handed to you but everything and anything is possible with a MSB degree.

Biggest pain point is with scholarship funding. The endowment size is small relative to peer institutions. Dean Thomas is well aware of the funding needs and I hope he's able to drive results.

Note: IB recruiting is absolutely the game changer for Gtown. They compete at top 10-15 level for MBA hiring.
