The George Washington University School of Business (GWSB or GW School of Business) is the business school of George Washington University in Washington, D.C., United States. The GW School of Business is a top-tier institution that offers both undergraduate and graduate business degrees in a variety of programs. Located in the heart of one of the most powerful and influential cities in the world, the GW School of Business affords its students and faculty the unique opportunity to conduct academic research on and collaborate with US government agencies, multilateral development banks, non-profit organizations, and thousands of national and multinational corporations.
In 1928, the School was founded on the idea that business and government might become partners in promoting national prosperity and international development. Beginning with a $1 million endowment from The Supreme Council of Scottish Rite Freemasonry Southern Jurisdiction, GW President Cloyd H. Marvin established what was known as the School of Government, with degree programs that integrated business and politics on the national and international levels.
In 1960, the School was renamed the School of Government, Business, and International Affairs. Then, in 1966, President Lloyd H. Elliott split its faculties into a new School of Government and Business Administration (SGBA) and a School of International Affairs—which today bears President Elliott's name. The SGBA was renamed the School of Business and Public Management in 1990. In 2004, it became the School of Business.
Throughout its history, the GW School of Business has attracted some of the nation's most outstanding leaders from academia, government, and the business world. In 1992, F. David Fowler, a managing partner of KPMG, became dean of the school. During his tenure, he dedicated himself to educating a generation of effective managers. Dean Fowler was succeeded in July 1998 by Susan M. Phillips. A former member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Dean Phillips brought to the School her expertise in such specializations as derivatives, bank supervision, and financial management. Susan Phillips was succeeded in August 2010 by Doug Guthrie. Dean Guthrie's areas of expertise lie in the fields of leadership and organizational change, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility, and economic reform in China.
In January 2006, the GW School of Business opened its new complex, the newly constructed Ric and Dawn Duquès Hall and the renovated Norma Lee and Morton Funger Hall. This complex provides students, faculty, and staff with a unified center for study and career development activities.
