Short-Term Study Away Programs

Short-Term Study Away Programs (STAPs) are the best way for students to exercise international mobility while at the GW School of Business (GWSB). STAPs are taught by faculty from GW or one of GWSB’s international partner universities and are open to graduate students enrolled at GW as well as GW students in non-degree status (i.e., not currently pursuing a degree or certificate). 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 diverse opportunities for global learning while at GWSB.
