Located in Washington, DC, the George Washington University School of Business has educated students since 1928. Ranked as one of the best business programs in the country, this institution offers several master’s of business administration, doctors of philosophy, and specialized master’s degrees. Its classes, which also accept undergraduates, range from accountancy and finance to marketing and tourism.
In May 2013, the George Washington University School of Business obtained headlines for altering its undergraduate finance program. Starting in fall 2013, the school will require students seeking a bachelor of science in finance to take a second major outside of the business school. The change reflects shifting necessities of the business community and the importance of having a multidisciplinary understanding of the world. By learning about liberal arts or science, students will garner a greater appreciation of the factors that affect business and use that in their careers.
