About George Washington University- School of Business

At The George Washington University School of Business (GWSB), we believe there’s a big difference between those who simply practice business and those who can create value; between those who strive to make a profit and a new generation of business leaders equipped with the innovation, imagination, and drive necessary to solve the global business challenges of our time. We embody this bold vision at GWSB. For 200 years, we have been preparing the business leaders who will not only thrive personally but also reshape the world in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Because when you’re situated in the heart of one of the top global capitals for policymaking and influence, you don’t waste opportunities on small-scale ambitions. 

By design, GWSB is a singular education created in the context of a thriving, highly supportive community. Here in Washington, D.C., we draw from the very best — from the federal government, private business, nonprofit, military, international firms, academia and more — to form a diverse and inclusive, truly global community dedicated to hands-on collaboration and a forward-thinking learning environment.
