"GMAT was looking to be a daunting task since I had never taken a computer based test of such a time duration. But the Experts' advice really worked and took the fear out of my mind. The study material was extremely good as it contains the relevant and the best of all topics from various sources and at a very reasonable rate.Hence the quality of the material far exceeds the cost. AWA template recommended is in sync with what is expected from GMAT takers and covers all aspects of analytical writing evaluators are looking for. All this helped to me score a good 740 with a scaled score of 5.0 in AWA."

In 1928, the School was established due to the collaboration of business and government of the country with the intention of promoting national and international development. GW President Cloyd H. Marwin championed the effort that led to the formation of the School of Government with degree programs catering to the integration of business and politics. The subsequent years led to several changes and the School was renamed as “The School of Government, Business and International Affairs” in 1960. In 1966, President Lloyd divided the faculties into 2 Schools- School of Government and Business Administration (SGBA) and School of International Affairs. In 1990, SGBA was renamed as School of Business and Public Management. In 2004, it became the School of Business.
The mission of The George Washington University School of Business is to have a lasting intellectual impact by: • Offering quality education through innovative programs which provide theoretical frameworks and real-world learning experiences. • Engaging in rigorous scholarship that advances knowledge in the management of organizations in the global environment. • Contributing as a local, national and global citizen.
The School focuses on integrating the business and analytical skills of the students in order to solve the bottlenecks in business. The MBA curriculum is designed to inculcate the values of leadership, ethics and globalization in students. Students are trained to assess and evaluate the impact of the global environment on the business. Students use efficient tools and resources to think critically about every business challenge and come up with an efficient solution to the problem. This instills analytical thinking skills in students, which leads to sound decision-making in critical business situations. The program ingrains responsible leadership skills in students and encourages them to indulge in team projects in order to reform them into good team players. Students learn the art of communicating effectively through professional presentations and well documented delivery reports.
The School does not believe in the philosophy of –“One size fits all.” So, the School offers Concentrations and Certificates in a vast variety of spheres, so that the students can customize their MBA experience based on their goals and aspirations. The Consulting concentration gives the exposure to engage with clients, prepare proposals, design the program based on client’s needs and provide recommendations to clients. This enhances the interpersonal skills of the students and builds their business acumen through hands-on experience. The Entrepreneurship concentration is a blend of theoretical and practical experiences of entrepreneurs running small, large, public or private ventures. The Global Management concentration equips students with the knowledge of international economics and marketplace.
The Consulting Abroad Project CAP requires the students to engage with a firm and provide suggestions and recommendations after thorough analysis and research. Students travel to the firm’s home country during this nine-week project and get the chance to interact with the firm’s business leaders. As a part of the Domestic Experiential Learning initiative by the School, the Business and Society Series course helps the students discover the various ways in which the private, public and NGO sectors cooperate and compete with each other.
The Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence CFEE aims at fostering the entrepreneurial spirit among its students. The Center engages in research activities to boost the spirit of students and encourages them to think-out-of-the-box, so that they can successfully start their new ventures or take their family businesses to newer heights. The Entrepreneurship Club nurtures a student’s entrepreneurial potential by helping him assess, evaluate and implement his business ideas.
The Center for International Business Education and Research CIBER focuses on improving the economic capabilities of its nation by promoting the understanding of Institutions, Policies and Development in International Business.
The Global and Experiential Education (G&EE) office works at providing a global education to the students of the School through a vast array of experiential education courses, global study programs and international student services. The School has partnership with other institutions across the world and students travel to these institutions as part of the Short Term Study Abroad and Long Term Study Abroad Trip. This gives them opportunity to delve into the culture, economy and business of another country and develop a different perspective. Students had taken advantage of visiting premium institutions of countries like China, Denmark, France, Singapore, Taiwan, Italy, etc.
The School is located in the center of the thriving business community of Washington D.C. where the public, private and NGO centers meet and interact. Located only few blocks away from World Bank and IMF and other such emerging businesses, the students get the opportunities to work as consultants, advisors and interns, and make an impact on the politics, government and businesses of the city. The Smithsonian, Spy Museum and Newseum are some of the must-visit museums of the city. The city has two dozen parks, which provide the necessary taste of natural beauty to this busy city and the dozen of bike trails are a mode of providing the much needed exercise required by the residents.
There are numerous Career Fairs organized by the F. David Fowler Career Center, where organizations participate in large numbers in order to recruit the students of this renowned School. These career fairs also are a networking opportunity for the students. The On-Campus Recruiting OCR program conducted by the center is an opportunity for the students to get interviewed and recruited by the employers who come from a wide range of industries. Additionally, advising and counseling services are available to the students with prior appointment. Students can get all the updated information about the potential employers and the job specifications from the Center.
