The George Washington University School of Business reached #4 in the Poets & Quants 2021 Online MBA program ranking released on Monday, November 9, 2020. GWSB vaulted forward an impressive 20 spots from last year’s publication.
Students in the GWSB online program can pursue an area of focus in a variety of areas, such as finance, human capital, and project management. Given the pandemic, healthcare is a popular option, and many of the students pursuing this path are doctors with decades of work experience. Students in GWSB's online MBA program participate in engaging experiential learning opportunities that are built into course requirements. For example, this summer Dr. Ayman El Tarabishy's class organized, hosted, and co-crafted a white paper on the topic, Leading in a Healthcare Crisis.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition at a time that online education is more important than ever,” said Dean Anuj Mehrotra. He added that, “Moving up into the top five programs is an outcome of the investment our faculty and staff have made in online learning and experiences. Our GWSB instructional design experts and faculty work together to tailor course content for the virtual classroom and prioritize creating community among our students online.”
This is the second time in a year that the School of Business has increased standing in rankings for online business education. In January, GWSB’s Online MBA moved up 14 positions in the annual U.S. News & World Report online graduate programs ranking.
