Allan Eberhart"You're more than a standardized score to us. We have a holistic approach to admissions where other factors, such as your prior academic record and essay, are important considerations. We always like applicants who are driven to gain admission by asking for ways they can improve their application and by following up on our recommendations. Say 'yes' to the challenge of our rigorous admissions process and show us your grit!"

Allan Eberhart is the Founding Director of the Master of Science in Finance Program, Senior Associate Dean for Technology-Intensive Education at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business, and a tenured Professor of Finance.
