Some Think Business is the Problem. We Think Smarter Business is the Answer.
By combining business and analytical skills with an ethical focus, we’re educating our MBA students on how to solve business problems that benefit their organizations as well as society.
Our location is not just where we are, it shapes who we are. Our MBA programs are embedded in the center of Washington, D.C., where the private, public, and NGO sectors meet and interact. For our students, it means an extraordinary opportunity to be involved in current international and national debates, engage with prominent global leaders and business executives, and project a clear and informed voice as they move forward in their careers.
Only in Washington, D.C., do so many students, working in so many sectors—federal government, private business, nonprofit, military, international firms—come together and collaborate so well. Our students bring their unique work and life experiences to the table, making for dynamic and diverse teamwork. This is a “who’s-helping-who”—not a “who’s-better-than-who”—learning environment. At GWSB, our MBA programs are designed to meet the needs of today’s students and specialization demanded in today’s job market. Our Global MBA is perfect for students who wish immerse themselves in a full-time, on-campus program where they study alongside and travel abroad with a cohort of peers. Our Professional MBA program gives working professionals the flexibility to complete their degree at an accelerated pace of 21 months or in up to 5 years. Additionally, Professional MBA students can take all of their courses on campus or elect to take some via distance learning in our Online MBA program.
For those interested in an Executive Education experience, the World Executive MBA program prepares high-level working professionals for the demands of the C-Suite, including cyber threats, in a 16-month, weekend-only format.
