We believe that being a great business leader isn't just about knowledge; it's about character. The GW Global MBA program builds both. In this program immersed in values, rigorous in theory and experiential in practice, you will become proficient in the fundamentals of business and management, while building muscle around your own sense of doing what is right.
Before you step foot inside a classroom you will attend MBA Institute, where you meet and network with MBA students from other cohorts, hear from prominent faculty, staff, and alumni, explore D.C., and get engaged with GW Colonial life. During the summer you'll also start the career preparation process by working with career consultants from the F. David Fowler Career Center to polish your resume and interviewing skills.
The GW Global MBA is comprised of 57 credit hours and divided into four modules with a summer in between. The program provides a dynamic experience in our core values of ethical leadership, globalization, sustainability and social responsibility. One highlight during your first year is the Consulting Abroad Program (CAP). This faculty-mentored, credit-bearing, real-world consulting project brings to life the intersection of business and society in emerging markets such as Ghana, Brazil, Vietnam, Serbia and Turkey.
At GW, we don't believe an MBA should be one-size-fits-all. In your second year, you have the flexibility to customize your curriculum by taking electives from 16 different areas. Develop your own interests and expertise. This is about your career, your life.
