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.

STAP programs 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.

The “short-term exchange” designation identifies programs run by a GWSB partner institution, and are only open to graduate students in the School of Business. These courses are a unique opportunity to enroll directly in a course at one of our partner universities and take classes with a diverse array of students, from our partner institutions across the globe.

Non-GWSB Courses

Additional short-term study abroad programs offered by the University, and open to GWSB students, are available through The Office for Study Abroad and the Graduate School of Political Management.
