Responsible Business Education
How does an FT Group Subscription
benefit faculty and students?
It has become more important than ever for future leaders to understand and explore ways to do business in a more responsible and sustainable manner, demanding schools around the world to repurpose their programs and play a crucial role in building a more socially responsible model of capitalism.
The Financial Times digital education program equips faculty members and students with the relevant tools they need to face the financial and business challenges of today.
It doesn’t matter if someone’s going to work on Wall Street or in London, whether you’re working in banking and finance and technology or for your family business, you need to stay current with information and the Financial Times is that resource.Visiting professor of international business, George Washington University

University uses the FT
GWU and the FT have been partnered since 2012, and the FT has been a staple in students’ studies ever since.
In the business school, in lessons and seminars in politics, economics and business roleplays, the FT’s non-partisan and in-depth exploration into real-world scenarios has allowed the students to focus their efforts into boosting their knowledge and business acumen, to apply it to today’s changing landscape.
The professors at GWU have found it very simple to integrate the FT’s tools and analysis into their teachings, from economics analysis to business studies. “In some classes, they’re tracking currencies. In another class, they’d be using it as background research for a research paper,” says Riddle. With the inclusion of the FT into teaching plans, it offers an enhancement by applying real world events to the conversations being had in class.
Our goal as educators is to make the link between scholarship and the real world for our students, and the Financial Times is our vehicle for doing that.Associate dean of graduate programs, GWU
