The GW School of Business and Four Seasons Hotel Celebrate the Opening of the “George Washington Room”

MBA Classes with Five Star Accommodations and Services.

WASHINGTON – The George Washington University’s School of Business (GWSB) and Four Seasons Hotel are proud to announce the opening of a custom space, the “George Washington Room.” This event space will be used for the freshly revamped GWSB World Executive MBA Program.

This past August, the George Washington University established a partnership with Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC as the exclusive location for delivery of its enriched World Executive MBA Program. The redesigned program includes half day Friday and full day Saturday classes on a bi-weekly schedule delivered in the all-new George Washington Room at Four Seasons. The improved program structure includes catered breakfast and lunch along with Friday overnight accommodations at the hotel on class weekends, providing executive students an unparalleled level of service and support. The environment is a comfortable and convenient space for group work and relationship building among members of the cohort.

Located just off of the front drive Courtyard of the Four Seasons Hotel, the “George Washington Room”, is 1,950 sq. ft. with 10 foot ceilings decorated in neutral tones. The room is self-contained with a dedicated private entrance, a marble entry foyer, an oversized self-serve butler’s pantry with granite counter tops, beverage center, buffet counters and ice machine. The entire space is finished with abstract contemporary art and equipped with built in audio visual technologies serviced by the Four Seasons in-house audio visual company.

For the GWSB World Executive MBA program, for which the space was created, data ports and electrical outlets are discreetly positioned though out the room so students can easily plug in. The space will be used for classes and all-day meals, providing a convenient learning experience. The covered outdoor terrace will soon be elegantly redecorated, lit and landscaped to be cohesive with the existing Four Seasons style and design, allowing the GWSB World Executive MBA Program students access inside and out during class breaks or even during meal periods.

“We believe it’s not enough to keep up with the new business environment. You’ve got to stay ahead” said Doug Guthrie, Dean of GWSB. “Our deep ties and partnerships with nearby government, public and private institutions including the Four Seasons Hotel allows us to truly customize Executive Education programs and provide a world-class educational experience for our students.”

Due to GWU World Executive MBA’s long term agreement with Four Seasons, the hotel offered to transition retail space on the property to a state of the art classroom that will hold up to 75 students.

“This partnership is forward thinking and innovative, but most importantly adds value to the executive education experience” said James Bailey, Director, World Executive MBA. “I know of no business schools that have forged a long term relationship like this. As with all our programs, we are leading the industry.”

“We are delighted to take part in the enhanced GWSB World Executive MBA and are thrilled that our significant commitment to the program is the beginning of a long standing relationship with George Washington University and Four Seasons Hotel,” said Yvette Thomas-Henry, Hotel Manager of Four Seasons Hotel.

Construction of the space is complete. The formal ribbon cutting ceremony took place on Tuesday, December 11 and the new space officially became “The George Washington Room.”

GW School of Business and
International Women’s Forum
Announce On the Board Fellows

Inaugural Class of 15 Remarkable Women Leaders
Accepted into History-Making Program

WASHINGTON – The George Washington University School of Business (GWSB) and the International Women’s Forum (IWF) today announced the selection of the inaugural class of fellows for On the Board: Advancing Women’s Corporate Board Leadership.

On the Board, an initiative of the George Washington University School of Business and the International Women’s Forum, is designed to prepare women leaders to become successful candidates for, and directors on, corporate boards. The program will feature the faculty of GWSB and other elite U.S. and international universities as well as leading practitioners, including sitting corporate directors. The power of the IWF network will bring important voices and experiences to the program that are unmatched.

It has been nearly 100 years since Marjorie Merriweather Post, became the first woman on a corporate board when she inherited the Post Cereal Company after her father’s death. Twenty years later, in 1934, Letitia Whitehead became the first woman appointed to the board of a major U.S. company (Coca-Cola). Since then, the number of women added to corporate boards averages 16 per year. And for the last decade, the percentage of women on corporate boards hasn’t budged, hovering around 16% for Fortune 500 companies, and 17.5% for Fortune 1000 companies.

Taking those numbers into account, it immediately becomes clear why On the Board will be truly revolutionary,” said Deedee Corradini, IWF President. “When we place all 15 Fellows on corporate boards, we will nearly double the advances made yearly for the last 81 years. This is monumental progress.”

Hand in hand with placing women on corporate boards, On the Board exists to hold corporations accountable, through research and measurement, for the grossly uneven board representation of one gender. Today, women comprise more than half of the global economy, 40% of the global workforce, and more than $20 trillion in financial spending worldwide. The question is not whether women will contribute to the future global economy, but by how much—and where. This is the very reason On the Board exists. Through an entirely action-oriented program, this program will prepare, promote, and place women on corporate boards.

On the Board will most certainly change business by having an almost immediate impact on the gender balance of corporate boards,” said Doug Guthrie, dean of GWSB. “And by changing business at the very top level, and pulling it into the 21st century, we will also affect change in the larger business environment and society overall.”

American business has stagnated in making progress in broadening their corporate boards, and they run the risk of falling seriously behind the revolution,” said Linda Rabbitt, founder and CEO of Rand Construction Corporation, GW Trustee and member of the IWF. “To remain competitive in a global marketplace, it is absolutely necessary for businesses to diversify their board memberships.” Rabbitt also provided a generous gift to establish and support the On the Board program.

The program received an overwhelming number of submissions from a diverse and impressive pool of applicants. Out of this highly qualified group, the International Selection Committee selected the following women on the basis of their leadership achievements and potential to serve as effective board directors:

Caryl Athanasiu
Executive Vice President, Chief Operational Risk Officer
Wells Fargo & Company

Shelley Bird
Executive Vice President of Public Affairs
Cardinal Health

Barbara Byrne
Vice Chairman, Investment Banking Division
Barclays

Lauri Fitz-Pegado
Partner
the Livingston Group

Laura Hwang
President
Singapore Council of Women’s Organizations

Deborah Lentz
Senior Vice President
Customer Service & Logistics
Kraft Foods

Isabel Linares
Senior Counselor
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC Spain)

Penny McIntyre
President
Newell Consumer Group

Gail McKee
Chief Human Resources Officer
Towers Watson

Nancy Philippart
Executive in Residence, Engineering Ventures Program
Wayne State University

Shoba Purushothaman
Founder
Training Ventures

Sandra Sanchez y Oldenhage President and CEO
Amgen Mexico

Anita M. Sands
Group Managing Director and Head of Change Leadership
UBS Wealth Management Americas

Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz President
Charles Schwab Foundation

Senior Vice President
Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.

Sandra M. Stash
Global Senior Vice President for Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Operational Assurance
Talisman Energy

On the Board Fellows will receive advanced training in board-level leadership knowledge and practice, including corporate strategy, crisis management, ethical and responsible decision-making, corporate finance and value creation, risk assessment, leadership communications and regulatory compliance. As part of the program, On the Board Fellows will receive advanced financial management training, increasing their competitiveness and skills for service on board-level audit and compensation committees.

The Fellowship Program is organized around residencies in Washington, DC, to be held three times during 2013: February 21-24, July 19-21, and November 15-17. During these days and evenings, On the Board Fellows will participate in training, development and coaching sessions as well as social and networking events. The program launch on Thursday, February 21 will also include a series of public sessions introducing the inaugural Fellows and exploring issues, ideas, and research related to advancing women’s corporate board leadership.

GW School of Business MBAs Conduct Energy Efficiency Study for Flying Dog Brewery

WASHINGTON –The George Washington University’s School of Business (GWSB) announced today that its MBA students are providing Flying Dog Brewery with an energy efficiency and on-site renewable energy feasibility study.

A team of ten GWSB MBAs, led by Peter Widmer, a second-year student, and faculty advisor Marty Silber, professor of clean technology, will help Flying Dog Brewery research and evaluate potential technology, software, and operational changes to identify opportunities to lower energy consumption and operational costs at its Frederick, MD brewery. The GW Energy Consulting team will also help Flying Dog establish an environmental impact baseline that could be used to monitor resource efficiency.

“We’re excited for the opportunity to partner with Flying Dog Brewery,” said Widmer. “Not only will we help the organization identify and evaluate cost saving investment opportunities, GW MBA students will also receive hands-on finance, consulting, and research experience that will help strengthen and broaden our technical capacity as we transition into future energy industry leadership positions.”

The study, as outlined below, will focus research and analysis on four key energy efficiency and generation opportunities identified by Flying Dog.

Electricity and natural gas utility bill analysis, forecasting, and benchmark reporting against comparable organizations of similar manufacturing operations and size.

Cogeneration analysis to capitalize on repeated heating and cooling operations that are used during the brewing process.

Building automation system and demand response program analysis to identify technology and processes that can be modified to reduce peak energy demand.

On-site renewable energy, including waste to energy, feasibility study encompassing solar, wind, and anaerobic digester technologies, along with state and utility incentives to promote renewable growth.

The report findings will be presented to the team to Flying Dog management in March 2013.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for students to address actual organizational challenges related to energy management surrounding issues of operational efficiency, growth, and sustainability,” said Silber.

Walk Up Wake Up Call: The Nation’s Capital as a THE Model for Walkable Urban Places

New Report Reveals How Walkable Urbanism Will Drive Tomorrow’s Real Estate Industry

         WASHINGTON – George Washington University’s School of Business (GWSB) Professor Christopher B. Leinberger has released his widely anticipated and game changing report on walkable urban placed and the real estate market: The WalkUP Wake-up Call: The Nation’s Capital as a National Model for Walkable Urban Places.

There is a paradigm shift underway in real estate. This research challenges real estate developers, investors, regulators, managers, academics and citizens to rethink the way we manage the 35 percent of our nation’s wealth that is invested in real estate and infrastructure, the built environment, and Washington, D.C. is the model; standing at the vanguard of this trend.

For decades, real estate practitioners, observers and scholars have looked through an urban-versus-suburban lens. This can be traced to an antiquated system based on U.S. Census data, which serves as the platform for much of the research on the built environment. In stark contrast to the traditional model, this new report takes an in-depth look at Washington, DC as a national pioneer in walkable urban places, to identify where development has and will take place and the economic and social impact it will have.

“This is an important recalibration that affects how most of us live, work and are entertained,” said Chris Leinberger, author of the report, and Charles Bendit Distinguished Scholar and Research Professor of Urban Real Estate at GW’s School of Business. Leinberger is also President of LOCUS, Responsible Real Estate Developers and investors, an affiliate of Smart Growth America “To ignore this structural change would be akin to ignoring the impact roads and cars had on the built environment more than a half-century ago.”

This new research defines—for the first time—where most existing Walk UPs are in the metropolitan D.C. region. It shows specific locations, the physical size of the places, the product mix, the transportation options and so forth. The study also ranks performance for these Walk UPs, based on two criteria: economics and social equity.

“If you can not measure, you can not manage,” Leinberger said.

Walkable urban development calls for dramatically different approaches to urban design and planning, regulation, financing and construction. Most importantly, it also requires the introduction of a new industry: place management. This new field develops the strategy and provides the day-to-day management for walkable urban places (referred to in shorthand as Walk UPs), creating a distinctive “could only be here” place in which investors and residents seem willing to invest for the long-term.

The George Washington University School of Business and Law School Launch New Joint Master of Science in Government Contracts Degree Program

 

            WASHINGTON—George Washington University School of Business (GWSB) and George Washington University Law School (GW Law) today launched a new and innovative interdisciplinary Master of Science in Government Contracts (MSGC) degree. The MSGC is unique in the world, blending the study of government procurement law and policy with a core business curriculum taught by the School of Business.

The new program, which begins August 28, is designed to give working professionals the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in the world of federal acquisition and is intended for professionals from a variety of acquisition-related jobs in both government and private industry.

“In a society as law-based as the United States, legal education can no longer be confined only to those who plan to be lawyers,” said GW Law Dean Paul Schiff Berman. “The Master of Science in Government Contracts degree explodes the model by allowing government and business professionals to access at GW both the nation’s leading government procurement law program and the outstanding core business curriculum. Together this combination literally transforms the educational landscape in this large and diverse field that is crucial to the nation’s economy.”

“Our new joint degree is a great opportunity for rising business executives to gain expertise from the law school’s already established government procurement program, while becoming familiar with the business principles behind government contracting,” said GWSB Dean Doug Guthrie. “It is a natural fit, one from which students will greatly benefit.”

“For more than 50 years, GW has been recognized as the leading educational institution for government contracts and procurement law,” said GW Law Associate Dean for Government Procurement Law Daniel Gordon. “With this innovative new program, and through our collaboration with the GW School of Business, we look forward to making our outstanding procurement law program and faculty available to business professionals from all segments of the federal acquisition arena.”

The GW School of Business is an international leader in education and research which prides itself on training future leaders to be global problem solvers and socially responsible managers. It leverages its prime location—in the heart of Washington, DC—to attract visiting scholars and leaders in the business community to work, teach and engage with students on campus. The depth and variety of its academic and professional programs, including six specialized master’s programs, provide rich opportunities for academic engagement and career development for students in the school’s core Bachelor of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration and doctoral programs.

GW Law, long recognized as one of the top law schools in the country, pursues a distinctive research and learning mission that engages the leading law and policy questions of our time and provides students with an education that will position them to help change the world. Accredited by the American Bar Association and a charter member of the Association of American Law Schools, the Law School was founded in 1865 and was the first law school in the District of Columbia.
