Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Now Accepting Applications

About the REU Program:
The Research Experience for Undergraduates program in the School of Business cultivates and supports research partnerships between undergraduate students and School of Business faculty members. The REU program provides opportunities for undergraduate students to work as part of the team on a faculty member's research project or to participate in a case competition requiring intensive research. The REU program engages undergraduates fully in the learning process and enables them to gain an appreciation of the role of research in business. For the academic year 2011-2012, we have 19 undergraduate students participating in the program working with 16 faculty members on diverse research projects.

The Office of Undergraduate Programs is now starting to accept REU applications from GWSB faculty members and undergraduate students for academic year 2012-2013. For faculty members who would like to have a research assistant, please contact Dr. Joelle Davis Carter at for detailed information.
