Graduate Programs for Veterans

The Graduate Programs at GWSB for Veterans

There is a special bond between the George Washington School of Business and active duty service members and military veterans. You bring leadership and experience that adds value to programs and fellow students. As a leader in business education, we provide new tools and knowledge to help you excel at what's next.

School of Business

The George Washington University School of Business offers six MBA programs, five Specialized Master of Science programs, and a doctoral program. Emphasizing ethical leadership and sustainable business practices, the programs are taught by exceptional faculty who are actively engaged in global business. Our location near the White House, the World Bank and the IMF provides extraordinary opportunities to interact with people and institutions that directly impact society. We advance the frontiers of knowledge through more than a dozen research centers and institutes, studying a full spectrum of relevant business topics, from international trade to sustainability to financial literacy. This is where it is all happening - at the Intersection of Business and Society.

"You have a proven capacity to lead and inspire others, and you've acquired and tested that capacity often in situations of extreme complexity and often in cases of dire emergency. Your experience enriches the classroom and campus environments and enriches the education of your fellow students because you bring a unique perspective to them. Your commitment to service, which you've also demonstrated in such an extraordinary way, is an inspiration to students, and I think strengthens their own commitment to service."

President Steven Knapp of George Washington University
at the Student Veterans of America National Conference
