A New Kind of MBA
is rising in Washington.

t The George Washington University School of Business, we’re not content teaching business the way it has always been taught. Our new MBA curriculum trains business leaders to act responsibly, lead passionately, and think globally. We will prepare you for success on multiple levels with solid fundamentals and an emphasis on ethics and leadership in a global economy. It’s smart. Itís bold. It might even rock the boat. Be a leader who stands for something greater.

  Why now?

think itís possible for business leaders to lead more than their businesses. By bringing a new level of energy and knowledge to the business world, you can set the tone for a new spirit in this country and around the globe. Weíve created an MBA program based on the concepts of ethics, global business, and leadership. And this isnít passive classroom learning, itís a dynamic experience in teamwork, critical thinking and judgment.

Unlike other MBA programs out there that claim to incorporate ethics, weíre not simply adding a class or mentioning the concept of ethics every now and then. From the very first class of the very first semester, ethics takes center stage. And throughout your program, weíll keep asking the question of how ethics affects every conversation and every decision. The learning is cumulative. Youíll take what you study along the way and apply it to every new situation.

  and then something more.

believe being a great business leader isnít just about knowledge; itís about character. The GW MBA programs build both. Youíll be proficient in the fundamentals of business and management, as well as doing what is right. This is a program immersed in values, rigorous in theory, and experiential in practice.

Values. Become a leader who stands for something greater. At the heart of our new curriculum are the concepts of ethics, global business, and leadership. From your first term, youíll develop the core values that will help you throughout your education, your career, and your life.

Rigor. What if your next decision affected the lives of 7 billion people? As a leader, you will face some tough challenges. As a student, youíll be asked to do the same. Our programs provide you with a solid theoretical foundation that will test and improve your skills in communication, critical thinking, analytics, and entrepreneurship.

Experiential Learning. Most MBAs know their business is global. Ours know that the globe is their business. International residencies and study abroad opportunities offer you an incredible opportunity to formulate real solutions to real issues in all corners of the globe.
