January 29, 2019

The George Washington University School of Business MBA program earned a top-10 ranking from the Financial Times in the publication’s “MBA 2019: the top MBA programmes in selected categories” ranking. The GWSB MBA program was ranked fifth in the “Top for international business” category. The standings were based on 2015 graduates’ ratings of their own MBA programs.

Liesl Riddle, associate dean of graduate programs, said GWSB’s high ranking is an accurate reflection of the depth and quality of the school’s focus on international business. “Students take initial courses about globalization and global perspectives as well as courses designed to explore global impact on business functions, such as international finance and managing the multinational enterprise,” she said. “Our students are in high demand by employers because of their ability to combine and organize data from varied sources to solve problems and innovate in an ever-changing world.”

“GWSB has a diversified faculty who do outstanding research in international business and have gain national and international recognition and reputation,” added Jiawen Yang, chairman of the International Business Department. “They have made significant contributions not only to academic studies and knowledge creation in international business, but also to policy analysis at international organizations and strategic decision-making at multinational companies.”
