Program description:

Global MBA students at the GW School of Business are challenged to view things from a wider perspective — and to make decisions that strive for profit as well as positive impact. The full-time, two-year Global MBA program provides rigorous training in traditional business skills. Our revised curriculum gives Global MBA students the freedom to tailor their studies to their professional interests and goals. The Global MBA program is 55.5 credit hours long. Three-credit courses are a full semester long (14 weeks). Students spend the first year taking required core courses in groups of 40-45 classmates, attending lectures, working on case studies and team projects, and participating in experiential learning opportunities. The second year of the Global MBA program is all about preparing for professional life after graduation. After spending the summer at an internship or studying abroad, students take elective courses focused on their areas of interest.
