Get ready! August is a busy time for new GMBA students. Your first weeks at GW will be a whirl of new people and experiences. There’s a lot to do and remember, but with a little preparation you can hit the ground running.
A copy of the GMBA C-Suite schedule will be posted here soon.
Prior to the start of the C-Suite, we invite you to attend a D.C. tradition, Jazz in the Garden! We will have a section reserved at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden on Friday, August 3. The music starts at 5:00 p.m. We will arrive early to ensure our group has enough space, so please feel free to come meet us and your fellow classmates! We will have food and drinks and picnic blankets — hope to see you there!

We hope this gives you a good start for the summer. We look forward to meeting you in August!
