What makes the Kogod School of Business different?
Kogod is Integrated
Kogod integrates business education with other disciplines to provide students with the opportunity to become highly versatile professionals. While many business schools offer interdisciplinary study, they do not have the same strategic focus and commitment to an integrated education. At Kogod, we combine the strengths of the School of Business with those of other American University schools, such as our Washington College of Law and our School of International Service, for an unmatched offering of dual degree and co-curricular programs.
Kogod is Engaged
American University and Kogod attract students who want to be actively engaged in their education and their community. Kogod has close ties with the business community and U.S. government policymakers. We maintain an ongoing dialog with leaders in business and government and incorporate their feedback into our academic programs to ensure we are teaching the skills the market demands. We are dedicated to service.
Kogod is Quality
Our faculty, staff and students are of the same high caliber as the best business schools in the country and they take an active role in their education through overseas study, internships, networking and participation in business competitions. We are committed to uncompromising quality and continuous improvement.
Kogod is International
From our globally diverse student body and faculty, to our access to the people and institutions shaping international change, we offer a truly unique perspective on the global marketplace. The Wall Street Journal Guide to the Top Business Schools recently highlighted Kogod graduates for their solid knowledge of world issues. Kogod offers outstanding exchange and study abroad opportunities. U.S. News and World Report ranks American University’s study abroad program as one of the best in the United States.
Kogod is Diverse
With more than 60 countries represented on our campus, we are a microcosm of the world. We are a forum for diverse opinions, cultures and ideas in which students are prepared to excel and lead.
