American University's Kogod School of Business Offers a Global Education


John Delaney


Kogod School of Business is an epicenter of global learning—from its internationally focused curriculum to its diverse student body. Thirty-two Latin American students represent a significant portion of the international campus community.

The school’s programs are quickly climbing the ranks for excellence in business education. In 2015, Kogod placed 18 in Fortune’s “Best Colleges for Earning a Business Degree” ranking; that same year, the school also earned a top spot in Bloomberg Business Week’s “Best Graduate Business Schools” list.

A Global Learning Laboratory

Kogod’s Washington, D.C. location connects students to a thriving international community outside the classroom. Students network with global business leaders and gain employment at leading international companies in the city; graduates hold positions at organizations such as the Inter-American Development Bank and FINCA International.


Experience Matters

Kogod’s graduate programs provide a strong core business curriculum rooted in experiential learning. Students collaborate with organizations to solve real-world problems, attend networking events, and go on site visits throughout the city.

The Full-Time MBA Program’s global consulting project offers students a distinctive international experience. Students work with a global company to address one of their business problems. The project culminates with a trip to the client’s home country, where students present their research and recommendations.

In addition to recent accolades, the university provides a number of resources to support its international students. Students receive support finding internships and full-time work that conforms to US immigration requirements, as well as help identifying global employers.
“Kogod School of Business offers dynamic learning opportunities for students who want to make an impact as a global citizen—no matter which career they choose after graduation,” concluded Kogod’s Director of Admissions, David Green.
