The George Washington University School of Business:
Engaging the World from the Nation’s Capital
The George Washington University School of Business is a world-class global educational institution located in the heart of the U.S. capital of Washington, D.C. GWSB is devoted to putting its students’ interests first and preparing them to be the business leaders of tomorrow.
Offering four-year degrees in accountancy, business administration and finance, GWSB’s undergraduate program fully prepares students for their next step, whether beginning a successful career or continuing their studies in graduate school. At the graduate level, GWSB offers a variety of MBA programs, specialized master’s programs, and doctoral and executive education programs, as well as innovative graduate certificate programs in a wide range of disciplines.
GWSB’s unique location is one of the school’s great strengths. The GWSB Foggy Bottom campus shares the neighborhood with U.S. federal agencies, international organizations, businesses, trade and advocacy associations, and nonprofits. The U.S. Departments of State and the Treasury, as well as the White House, are within walking distance, as are the World Bank and International Monetary Fund headquarters. The world diplomatic community is also nearby, with many of the more than 170 foreign embassies in Washington, D.C., within a mile of campus.
The school takes full advantage of the proximity to so many government agencies, businesses, and international organizations. National and international leaders — from heads of state to captains of industry and visionary entrepreneurs — frequently speak on campus. Students have unmatched access for first-hand observation and study of some of the most important and influential organizations in the world. The relationship between GWSB and Washington, D.C., frequently results in student internships, and after graduation, employment opportunities.
GWSB has earned a well-deserved reputation as a global institution with a global outlook. Its student body is internationally diverse, with students coming to GWSB from all around the world. While GWSB welcomes the world to its campus, it also goes out into the world, with its extensive array of long and short-term study-abroad and consulting programs. GWSB has made the world its classroom.
In addition to teaching excellence, GWSB is renowned for the cutting-edge research conducted by its faculty. The school is home to more than a dozen research centers, each dedicated to expanding the shared knowledge of a specific aspect of the business world.
GWSB’s strengths in classroom instruction and teaching are more than matched in the area of co-curricular programs, especially by the exceptional record of achievement compiled by the school’s F. David Fowler Career Center (FDFCC). Much more than an “employment service,” the FDFCC provides GWSB undergraduate and graduate students with the lifelong career-management skills they will need to succeed in today’s competitive employment market.
Completing the GWSB Community is an exceptionally loyal and active alumni network. GWSB graduates have made their mark in every aspect of business, as well as in public service. GWSB alumni have demonstrated a remarkable devotion to their alma mater, keeping in close touch to support the school and, especially, its students and their fellow graduates.
