GWSB FOLLIES

The GWSB Follies is where aspiring MBAs can gather safely at the intersection of business and society to identify the very best qualities GWSB has to offer, then relentlessly mock them. MBA students can write, create, produce, and act in a sketch comedy show – then perform in front of a live audience at the Jack Morton Auditorium. Don’t want to be on stage? That’s ok, performance is entirely optional (but dues are not – that’s how we pay for the beer). So join us! We sing! We dance! We meet at the bar. Because if you can’t think of a way to make fun of the School of Business, you haven’t been paying attention.
