Thank you for your interest in the George Washington University School of Business and the Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis. At GW you will find a first-rate classroom education, involved alumni in the industry to network with and guide you — right in the heart of one of the most dynamic commercial real estate markets in the world. Our extensive alumni network of industry professionals and a student body comprised of people from all over the world produce a truly global experience. In today’s environment where business and government increasingly intersect, there is no better place in Washington to think about real estate than GW.

The Washington metropolitan area has become a model of walkable urban development in the United States. It is also developing rapidly as a center of research and business innovation, and GWSB has forged close relationships with and between many real estate developers, investors, and government organizations. The fruits of these partnerships include consulting opportunities for faculty, grants, and funding opportunities for the School’s programs and internships and full-time placements for students. At GWSB, you’ll truly be at the center of it all. Graduates of GW’s program go on to be real estate entrepreneurs, hold senior positions in banking, private equity, and investment management, are brokers and developers in both residential and commercial real estate. They can be found all over the U.S., and indeed, the world. Our MBA program will help you to become proficient in the fundamentals of real estate development and management, providing you with an education that is immersed in social and environmental values, rigorous in theory and experimental in practice.
