The GW Global MBA is based on the premise that being a great business leader isn’t just about knowledge; it’s about character. The program prepares students to act responsibly, lead passionately, and think globally.

Students spend the first year taking required core courses with a cohort of 40-45 classmates, attending lectures, working on case studies and team projects, and participating in experiential learning opportunities. GW MBAs also venture abroad to work with a company on a real-world project.

The second year of the 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. With 24 credit hours of electives built into the curriculum, students are able to add up to two Concentrations and/or Certificates to their degrees.

The GW Global MBA is comprised of 55.5 credit hours
