Leveraging its focus on business together with our location in the real estate capital of Washington, D.C., the George Washington University School of Business stands at the center of critical discussions between real estate practice and law. We seek to educate our students to act ethically and effectively at the convergence of the two. The Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis is the GWSB's thought leader on the intersection of real estate and public policy.
The Global MBA Program consists of 57 credit hours delivered in modular format. In the first year, the core curriculum is completed within an active and integrated cohort of 45-50 classmates. Students develop first-hand experience in communicating and studying as a group, crucial issues for professionals today. The first-year curriculum is focused on ethics, leadership, globalization and teamwork.
In the second year, the curriculum consists of electives and our capstone courses in entrepreneurship and business strategy. Both courses have intramural case-based competitions which provide for integration of the core knowledge and strategic analysis. Students can customize their programs by choosing 12 elective courses from over 16 knowledge domains, including Real Estate and Urban Development. The program is completed in two years (21 months.)
