The Mason Advantage
Dedicated to excellence in teaching and research, the School of Business educates future business leaders through world-class innovative academic programs and strategic business partnerships. We prepare graduate and undergraduate students for increased globalization through a range of academic degree programs, executive education programs, and international alliances.
Ranked in 2014 among the top 100 undergraduate business school programs and part-time MBA programs by U.S. News & World Report, the School of Business is accredited in both business and accounting by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.
The School of Business is fully engaged with the regional business community, graduating highly qualified business students, producing research that informs business policy and operations, and providing venues for the region's business leaders to work with our students in the classroom and to learn from each other. Business leaders and organizations are actively engaged through executive education programs, speaker engagements, classroom lectures, case competitions, internships, and career placement.
Located just outside Washington, D.C., at the intersection of global business and global politics, the School of Business' commitment to the region balances well with the global focus of our programs and diversity of our student body. George Mason University has received national recognition for the multicultural and international diversity of its student population, with students representing over 130 countries and all 50 states. This diversity at the university level is clearly reflected in both the School of Business student body and faculty.
Our faculty are deeply engaged in the regional, national, and international business communities and their academic expertise combined with real-world experience provides a bridge in the classroom from academic theory to business practice. Faculty members have provided expert testimony before nearly every federal agency and have served as consultants to organizations such as NASDAQ, the FDIC, and the Department of Defense.
The School of Business enrolls more than 3,500 undergraduate students pursuing majors in accounting, finance, management, marketing, or information systems and operations management. More than 450 graduate students are enrolled in the Mason MBA, Executive MBA, MS in Accounting, MS in Real Estate Development, MS in Technology Management, and MS in Management of Secure Information Systems. We also offer executive education and certificate programs to equip business leaders to meet the demands of today's complex global economy.
