Linda A. Livingstone, Ph.D
Dean, The George Washington University School of Business
Dr. Linda Livingstone became dean of the George Washington University School of Business (GWSB) on August 1, 2014. Upon her arrival at GW, Dr. Livingstone implemented a new, comprehensive strategic planning process that identified three themes, which will guide the school in the years ahead. GWSB will leverage its location to develop a competitive advantage and differentiate itself by building on the unique capabilities associated with the school’s location in the heart of the nation’s capital; enhance its global focus to encourage prosperity globally by leveraging existing strengths and building on the school’s significant global reputation and reach; and, serve as a catalyst for multi-disciplinary opportunities across the University that increase innovation and the school’s impact on economies and societies.
In support of these priorities, the school has developed a graduate certificate in capital markets in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the Milken Institute; redesigned its Healthcare MBA program in collaboration with the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, launched the Korean Management Institute, and expanded career services to enhance support for international students. Currently, the Global MBA program is ranked 40th by Bloomberg BusinessWeek, the Online MBA Programs is among the top 25 according to The Princeton Review, the undergraduate and graduate International Business programs are ranked #11 and #15 respectively by U.S. News and World Report, and Military Times selected GWSB as the 27th best business school for veterans in its latest rankings.Learn More
