MODEST AMBITIONS NEED NOT APPLY
At the George Washington University School of Business we set the bar above the bottom line.
We value profits, but on top of them, we also value how they’re made. That’s why we’re adding a new dimension to how we measure success: not just in profits and power, but also in responsibility and its integral role in shaping society.
This added dimension gives us a competitive advantage. It helps us gain a better understanding of the true cost and value of our decisions, and the awareness to make them smarter moving forward.
Adding this to every decision we make is helping us stand out. Because when we look past the balance sheets everyone else is focused on—when we look deeper into what’s actually driving them—we give ourselves an edge in competitive markets across the globe.
And that’s our idea of good business.
Our academic mission is to be a preeminent business school recognized for scholarly research, teaching excellence, and innovative curricula; focused on the responsible management of organizations in the global environment.
Not only do our students learn concrete business skills, but they also get a front-row seat to how business is conducted. We’re located just a few blocks away from global institutions like the World Bank and IMF as well as thousands of global businesses and non-profits.
They are diverse in age, race, experience and background, but share the same thirst for knowledge and drive to affect the world.
Our curricula provides proficiency and influence in the global economy: where worldviews, products, and ideas interchange.
Our location gives students and faculty the opportunity and responsibility to conduct research that advances society.
You might say it’s our oldest — and proudest — tradition. For 75 years, we’ve stood on the cutting edge of bold new ideas.
