Kogod School of Business

Known for our focus on experiential learning, the Kogod School of Business has been educating the world’s business leaders since 1955. Where other schools breed competition among students, Kogod fosters a collaborative learning environment based on academic trust and integrity. Our more than 75 full-time faculty are scholars in the field of business who embrace hands-on, evidence-based learning in and out of the classroom. We take a team approach to our students’ education; each faculty member is dedicated to scholarship and teaching, building lasting relationships with students that continue through graduation and beyond.

The Kogod School of Business connects students to the real world with a curriculum that anticipates the changing needs of the marketplace. It leverages our Washington, D.C., location—the center of world capitalism and a technology-rich business community—to create a special kind of leader.
