How well did the extra-curricular opportunities offered to you in the business program nurture and improve your skills in business?

Extra-curricular clubs and activities are not only a way to get involved on campus and create a community and friends — they can also look good on resumes or lead to networking opportunities. If done right, they can also help develop extra skills that might not be addressed in-depth in the classroom like work with cryptocurrencies or within fintech. This year, alums from Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business gave their school the highest rating in this category at 9.40. Binghamton University and Texas Christian University followed, both earning a 9.33. Cornell was right behind with a 9.32. The 9.40 score earned by Georgetown is slightly lower when Georgia Tech scored a 9.43. But it’s higher than 2020 when Cornell led with a 9.37 average.

Across all schools, the average this year was 8.39, up from last year’s 8.32, but down from 8.44 in 2020, and 8.60 in 2019.
