Finance Department Chair Professor Robert Van Order, PhDWhen you assemble a list of what matters in a finance program, we firmly believe that no school offers the unique combination of curriculum, faculty expertise, opportunity, and location provided by GW School of Business.

We are committed to helping students become ethical leaders in the global marketplace. Our broad curriculum, which is revised often, combines applied research, financial modeling, decision making, and innovative software. As a student you are free to explore the international and regulatory dimensions of finance, personal finance, wealth management, risk management, financial engineering, banking, corporate finance, real estate, and portfolio analysis and management. You will benefit from a program that not only stresses excellence in teaching, but also provides flexibility that will enable you to achieve academic and career goals that are specific to you. it all happens right here in Washington, D.C., where global financial policy is born, and where you have access to the institutions and people who shape that very policy.”
