Rodney Lake

Welcome from Dean Lake

I would like to welcome all of our undergraduate students to the George Washington University School of Business (GWSB). I am humbled and honored to serve as the GWSB Vice Dean of Undergraduate Programs.

As you prepare to arrive on campus, I encourage you to expand your GW network by joining a student organization, participating in co-curricular initiatives, connecting with faculty, and meeting with members of our Undergraduate Programs team. This network of opportunities will support you in your overall academic success, leadership development, and life outside of GWSB.  

Our faculty, academic advisors, programing staff and career center professionals have top credentials; more importantly, we care about student success. Together our team empowers students to grow and do great things.

I’m looking forward to a great year!

-Rodney E. Lake, Vice Dean of Undergraduate Programs

Find an Undergraduate Program

Pursue one of eight undergraduate degrees offered at the GW School of Business (GWSB) or explore our new 4+1 Program, which allows students to complete both a bachelor's and a master's degree in five years. GWSB students may declare up to two majors within GWSB.

Not a School of Business student? No problem! Non-GWSB students may take any of the above fields of study (with the exception of Accountancy) as a second major while in their home school at GW. Non-GWSB students can also pursue a minor at GWSB; we offer eight different minor options.


Combined Degree Options

Your bachelor's degree may be combined with a specialized master's degree through GWSB's new 4+1 Program, which enables students to complete both a bachelor's and a master's degree in five years. 4+1 Program options, eligibility and degree paths are outlined on the 4+1 Program page.



The Undergraduate Experience at GWSB

Our location in Washington, D.C. gives students access to opportunities and resources not available anywhere else. At the GW School of Business (GWSB), undergraduates conduct research, study abroad, and intern at financial institutions, consulting firms, policy institutes, and on the Hill — all with the extensive support of our Advising Center.

There are countless opportunities to expand your involvement beyond the classroom through our Office of Student Engagement, including joining an undergraduate club or organization, volunteering in D.C., or attending a campus event.
