Georgetown University MSF Admissions
The admissions process at Georgetown University is multi-faceted. The MSF Admissions Committee takes a holistic approach when evaluating program applications and looks at a variety of professional and academic factors for consideration. Outlined below are the key factors and requirements reviewed by the Admissions Committee for acceptance into the MSF program:
We use your GMAT or GRE scores to assess your aptitude for the program but we will also carefully examine your overall academic record, your performance in challenging courses, and the quality of your undergraduate institution. Though it is helpful to have prior coursework in finance, accounting, and statistics, it is not mandatory.
We do consider applicants without post-baccalaureate work experience, but such experience is valued and considered by the MSF Admissions Committee.
Letters of Recommendation
We would like to hear what your mentors and colleagues think of you, and how the Georgetown University MSF program will benefit you. A letter from your current or previous work supervisor is ideal and waiving your right to review the letter will add credibility to the recommendation.
We want to know about you. Why do you want to be an MSF student at Georgetown University? What are your career goals after completion of the MSF program? Are there any “red flags” in your application (e.g., a poor academic performance in a semester) that it would be helpful to explain?
Degree Requirements: BA or BS from an accredited university. While prior academic coursework in finance is helpful, it is not required.
Tests: Must submit an official copy of a GMAT or GRE with test date.
Georgetown University GMAT code: JT7-G0-64
Georgetown University GRE code: 5781
Note: The Admissions Committee does not prefer one test over the other. Applicants may choose to take and submit either the GMAT or the GRE based on their personal preference.
GPA Requirements: We expect that the average GPA for our incoming class to be above 3.0, but we understand that a student’s GPA is largely dependent on his or her undergraduate major and school.
