Most countries offer programs with some coursework in English. In addition, there are many English speaking countries that have programs such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the British Isles. Please note that the School of Business does encourage the pursuit of a second language.
Who is my GWSB Study Abroad Advisor?
Will my credits be transferred back to GW after departure?
Most of the time. If you work carefully with the Advising Center, we can plan what courses you will take while you are away and have the courses approved prior to your departure.
Please remember that you must receive a grade of “C” or higher in order to transfer credit back to GW.
What if I change the courses I take abroad after getting different courses approved?
GWSB students are responsible for being familiar with their academic program. If a student takes a course that is not approved prior to departure, they will either have to get the approval while abroad or once they return. Students must go to the appropriate department at GW to seek course approval.
Who do I contact to get abroad courses approved?
All courses taken abroad must be approved by the appropriate GW faculty member in order to be transferred back to GW; this applies to classes that will be used to fulfill liberal arts and elective requirements, as well as those that fulfill business requirements. Most professors will need to see a course syllabus in order to review the class for approval. A list of Study Abroad course approval contacts can be accessed here.
What if the program I am considering is not approved by GW’s Office for Study Abroad?
Please refer to the information about the petition process on the Study Abroad website.
