The world has changed and we've changed our EMBA to support business leaders who want to do more than keep up. They want to leap ahead in a short amount of time.

The bold new World Executive MBA (WEMBA) is a 16-month program focused on ethical leadership, globalization, sustainability and social responsibility. Designed to provide an education steeped in academic rigor and practical knowledge, it features the same curriculum as our flagship Global MBA program, taught through an executive lens.

The George Washington University School of Business WEMBA is unique in that you can choose an individualized track in international business, sustainability or leadership, and take electives that fit with your goals. You also have access to a personal leadership coach who will help you focus on your leadership development and work with you to create a 5-year strategic plan.

As a WEMBA student, you'll participate in four residencies: two in Washington, D.C. and two in developing markets such as Ghana, India, Brazil or another fascinating location. It's a chance to grow, learn and stretch your capabilities. The same is true of our Business Challenge, where your team provides solutions to real-time, real-life issues that exist within your current organizations.

If you're aiming for COO, CFO, CEO (or even higher), the World Executive MBA needs to be in your field of vision.
