The George Washington University School of Business MBA program is ranked #36 among U.S. schools — and #70 worldwide — in the Financial Times (FT) MBA ranking released this week. GWSB improved by an impressive 20 spots from last year’s FT worldwide rankings (#90 in 2019), and 10 spots among U.S. schools (#46 in 2019). GWSB earned FT’s “highest riser” designation for 2020 and top marks for International Business (#2) and Corporate Social Responsibility (#9), longtime areas of strength for GWSB and its MBA program.

The FT ranking also cited GWSB’s MBA program for its high percentages of international students and female faculty and students. “As a business school we’re passionate about belonging — because it’s right, and because it improves our MBA program,” Dean Anuj Mehrotra said. “We are committed to inclusion of international and women’s perspectives among our faculty and students. We continue to adapt to the changing market demands to ensure that our MBA prepares our students to be influential business leaders globally.

“Like all we do at GWSB, our MBA program is dedicated to putting students’ interests first in preparing them as global business leaders,” Dean Mehrotra said, “And we are earning increasingly widespread recognition for our excellence.”
