Global & Experiential Education

About G&EE

The Global and Experiential Education (G&EE) office is the nexus for international opportunities and initiatives in the School of Business and supports global business education through a broad portfolio of global study programs, experiential education courses and international student services.

G&EE Mission
Global & Experiential Education (G&EE) supports four primary areas: international student services, overseas study, experiential education programs (domestic and international), and advocacy and collaboration related to global and experiential initiatives. The department serves as a locus for collaboration and connectivity within GWSB, across the campus, and around the world.

The broad scope of G&EE’s activity reflects a commitment on behalf of the GW School of Business to not only make good on our institutional aim of preparing managers for the global workforce but also to do so in a manner that is collaborative and integrated across student populations, sectors of business and society, and academic disciplines.

The programs and activities sponsored through G&EE serve students at all levels of study in the School of Business: undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. The department supports and connects faculty to innovative pedagogy and global perspectives to assist in dynamic teaching, research, and service to the School and their field of expertise.

Business and Society Series

Courses in this series examine the broad societal arena in which business operates with particular attention to its political, economic and cultural environments, paying specific attention to the relationships businesses establish with government agencies, multilateral organizations, macroeconomic institutions, and nongovernmental organizations.

Drawing on the rich resources in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Business and Society courses bring students into close contact with major organizations and associations through onsite visits and guest lectures.

Courses are intentionally taught by faculty from various departments in the School of Business and to incorporate diverse perspectives through a variety of speakers, site visits, client meetings and/or service learning projects in Washington, DC. The course connects students with the rich resources of the nation’s capital by dividing course time between instruction on the GW campus and onsite learning in the field.

Students in past Business and Society courses have traveled onsite to the Federal Reserve Bank, U.S. House of Representatives, Federal Trade Commission, Red Cross, International Monetary Fund, and a variety of NGOs.

As part of the Global MBA curriculum, all first-year students participate in one of several Consulting Abroad Projects (CAPs).

By the end of their first year of study all Global MBA students gain experience working on a faculty-mentored, team-based consultancy abroad.

Long Term Study Abroad

GWSB has partnered with top business schools around the world, providing students access to hundreds of additional electives, full immersion in another culture, and exposure to another business perspective.

As part of these reciprocal agreements, GWSB welcomes graduate exchange students each semester from our partner universities.

Developing strong bilateral student exchanges for graduate students has been a priority in the growth of G&EE.  At its founding in 2008 zero active exchange agreements existed for graduate students, spurring the development of a strategic plan aiming to increase the number of active exchange partners.  At present 20 partners have been added and G&EE oversees selection, placement, and advisement for both incoming and outgoing exchange students. Below is a complete list of the current, though expanding, exchange partners for graduate study.

Short Term Study Away Programs

Short-Term Study Away Programs (STAPs) are the best way for graduate students to exercise international mobility while at the School of Business. STAPss are taught by faculty from GW or one of GWSB’s international partner universities and are open to graduate students enrolled at the University; within the Washington, DC area, and to students in non-degree status. Select undergraduates may participate in faculty-led programs if they meet admission standards set by STAP faculty. Offerings are designed to expose graduate students to opportunities for global learning while at GWSB.
