Project-based learning provides opportunities for GW School of Business (GWSB) students to work with international and domestic partners on current real-world business challenges. Partnerships are determined based on the partner’s unique needs and the students’ industry experience, skills, and learning objectives. These unique collaborations allow partners to tap into the experience of rising business leaders who, under the mentorship of GWSB faculty, provide valuable solutions and insights.
