Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a great program. I am an international school. I believe that the students of emerging and 3rd world countries must get the education from western Universities like George Washington School of Business to bring changes in human life in our society. It has opened my eyes and build enormous confidence in me to perform much better in the professional arena. It's really a great school. I wish I could have studied in this school before 10 years. I could make a lot of difference in the society - in the world.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is very good, but very DC-focused. Wanting to shift back West makes this rather difficult. The night classes are very useful for interning or working.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm getting an excellent, well rounded education that is absolutely preparing me for my field from an institution with a great reputation. Although the cost and therefore loans are daunting, it's worth it.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

GW is a very excellent school. I am getting a solid education here. I am positive that I will be able to get a job in my career field once I am done with school here. The negatives are that they weren't exactly honest about what you were getting when you entered the program when it came to things like financial aid and program length. Also, the cost of living is ridiculously expensive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The PMBA program at GW has been great thus far. I was an undergrad at GW and had a great experience. The graduate program lives up to that. Thus far the professors are good and fair. While many of them have outside jobs, they care about their areas of study and students.

Degree: Systems Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

The Systems Engineering Doctoral program is highly accelerated, at first, in which the first 10 months are about the same amount of work as it took for my Master's degree. The second phase of this program is two year research and dissertation phase, in which successful students must have works published, speak at conferences, complete a thesis and defense.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros Of Graduate Program The Master of Accountancy graduate program in GW gives students the chance to gain in-depth knowledge of accounting, auditing and taxation. The courses are designed to prepare you for the CPA exam and eventually become a Certified Public Accountant. Besides a career in business, you can also do research here. If you are academically interested in accounting, GW provides a competitive Ph.D. program in accounting as well. In here, you will be surrounded with world-class professors and students from diverse backgrounds. Also, the flexibility of Master of Accountancy program is excellent. A high percentage of the students are working full-time and taking the courses in the evenings. Finally, the worldwide alumni network of GW will assist you to get a high paying job after completing your graduate degree. Cons Of Graduate Program It requires alot of time and money to complete Master of Accountancy graduate program if you will also be working full-time. Since, you have to spend considerable time and energy on work, research and studies; you would be working very hard and would hardly be left with any time to pursue your interests and hobbies.
