In a competitive business environment, having a master’s degree can lead to higher-level positions, more responsibility and greater earning potential. The 4+1 Program (also known as the Combined Degree Program) at the GW School of Business (GWSB) allows students in most cases to complete both a bachelor's and a master's degree in five years. Students share nine specific credit hours between their undergraduate and graduate degrees (with the exception of the Master of Accountancy program, which operates differently — please speak with the program manager for more information). Learn more about the program, view curriculum requirements, and get contact information for each program option.


First Year Development Program

The First Year Development Program (FYDP) is a required two-semester course for all first-year students at the GW School of Business.

FYDP provides students information on resources at GW and GWSB to help them transition into the university and succeed both in and out of the classroom. Students develop career-based knowledge, begin preparation for business careers, and learn about the importance of civility and integrity in business discourse.

Finally, students perform service within the District of Columbia in order to apply the business concepts and entrepreneurship. Students earn one academic credit for each course.
