The GWU MBA program is very hands on. You get a personal experience with the faculty and staff, and the networking is great amongst the students.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

GWU is a wonderful school because of its connections to the DC metro area. Also since the school was founded in 1821 it has grown with its surroundings. The MPH program has excellent professors and advisors who are always available and willing to help. The career services department is also very helpful and they put on regular events and bring in outside professional organizations to discuss the public health career field. However, the $60k cost of tuition for the MPH program was prohibitive for me and I ended up transferring to another university. I did not want to transfer because it was a good, quality education that provided good support services but the tuition bill was outrageous. Overall, great program if you can afford it.

Degree: Counseling

George Washington University is a great, but expensive, school. The surrounding area is also very expensive.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

The Political Management program part of the Graduate School of Media and Public Affairs has a very supportive staff who have helped me to network and meet people in the political jungle that is Washington, D.C. I would have never found out about my current, AMAZING internship if it weren't for our career advisor. This program, though extremely expensive, has taught me great skills and aided me with honing in the skills that I've already attained through my undergrad experience. Though I will be in monumental debt, I know that it will be worth it to walk away with this degree.

Degree: Systems Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The main con of the graduate program is due to the cost of attending. The graduate program is too expensive when compared to similar university. The school has great programs with lots of opportunities and career options.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I appreciate the program but find it too expensive for the value it provides. Faculty is very hit or miss. Some are great but others are of not a high quality. I would recommend student be sure to visit and not go if you are paying full tuition.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

GW has a great distance learning program for Public Health that promotes interaction between students and faculty, allows for live lecture sessions, and gives you the same great education that is offered on campus.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Highly respected and accomplished professors, yet only one or two really seem to love teaching and be good at it. For such high tuition, a student should expect some AMAZING instruction. The TA's are mostly very helpful, but their support hours are very limited. No proper study lab set up to assist with extra help - even though the coursework requires a lot of statistics and special software that we could use help learning/reviewing prior to, and during the courses. The coursework includes assignments for real-life application. The classrooms are high-tech and very comfortable, the students are top-notch and pull their weight on group assignments. The program director is active in keeping students abreast of PMI and other important events and opportunities for PM students, and the office crew does a great job, too...always helpful.
