Online MBA Overview

The Online MBA program at the GW School of Business (GWSB) is highly  influenced by our Washington, D.C. location, where the private, public and NGO sectors meet and interact. Our institutional and professional relationships in the area enable us to provide our distance-learning students with opportunities to immerse themselves through an optional four-day residency course in D.C., class projects, digital course materials, live learning opportunities, and co-curricular experiences.   

Students may begin the program in the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters  (August, January, or May). Generally, students will take six credit hours per semester. 

All coursework can be completed fully online; please note that there are in-person global and experiential opportunities as well. Cutting-edge, digital courses are organized into learning episodes and are comprised of videos, video cases, podcasts, animations, and other pre-recorded content in addition to traditional reading assignments. Students progress within each learning unit at their own paces, but must complete the learning unit by assigned target dates.
