The addition of George Mason University to my resume has caught many employers' attention. Going to George Mason University has been a game-changer for me, and I am so proud to be a Patriot."

"I work at Procter & Gamble as an Innovative Project Manager with over 15 years of work experience contributing daily to the business and organization with a vision to ensure a legacy of exceptional business-building and organization capability development. The MBA program with George Mason University provided me with new concepts and knowledge in conjunction with my existing work experience to advance my leadership skills and entrepreneurial acumen. The most important features that led to my decision for George Mason University School of Business accounted for the program cost, which was well within my budget, the diverse background & real-world experience of the faculty members, and the global residency which ended up being one of the most memorable moments throughout the entire MBA program. It was great networking with faculty members, classmate professionals from the private and public sector, and learning through projects, case studies, and of course the global residency that turned out to be the highlight of the program."
