Accelerate your career and work full-time without missing a beat.
The GW School of Business Professional MBA (PMBA), a part-time program, is more than passive classroom learning — it’s a dynamic experience in teamwork, critical thinking and judgment. Our program focuses on the fundamentals of business and reflects the growing value of ethical leadership, globalization, sustainability and social responsibility.
The PMBA is rigorous in theory, experiential in practice, and capitalizes on our location in Washington, D.C., where business and politics intersect. It’s also designed to work for your lifestyle, with four paths to completion: Cohort, Self-Paced, Online, and Hybrid. Our main campus is just two blocks from the Foggy Bottom Metro station, convenient to work and home. Your classes, professors' offices, academic advisor, and the F. David Fowler Career Center are all located in the same building.
Our PMBA gives you flexibility to complete your degree in two to five years, on campus or online, with a cohort of fellow students or independently. You can dive deeper with intensive weekend formats or explore experiential courses that leverage our unique location. You may even choose to participate in a short-term study abroad program to earn up to six academic credits in just 1-3 weeks. Balancing school, work and family is a lot of work, so we've designed this program to ensure you get as much out of your MBA experience as possible.
