Degree Requirements

For Students Enrolled in the School of Business

Attend a School of Business Concentration Information Session to learn more about the concentration and connect with the GWSB Faculty!

GWSB Offers Three Undergraduate Degrees

During the first year, all GWSB students are encouraged to complete the same set of requirements, regardless of the degree they choose to pursue. This gives our students an opportunity to explore and research their degree options.

School of Business General Education Requirements (Required for all three degree options) For students who entered GWSB Fall 2014 and forward: 

Minors & 2nd Majors: Options for GWSB Students

All GWSB degrees allow students to choose a minor or second major outside of the School of Business. BBA students entering Fall 2014 or later are required to complete a minor outside of the School of Business; all BS students are required to complete a second major outside the School of Business; BAccy students are not required to do either, but are able to. Students should consult with the department in which their study of interest is housed to learn more about minor/major course requirements. They should also consult with a GWSB advisor to ensure they will be able to pursue a minor/major and stay on track towards graduation. Declaration Forms can be found on the Advising Center’s Forms page.

Review GW’s Center for Career Services’ Career Option Sheets to become familiar with how your minor or second major option relates to sample occupations, potential topics, work settings, student organizations, professional associations, online resources and key skills needed in specific industries.

For Students Enrolled in Other Schools at GW

Non-GWSB students have two methods of study at the School of Business:

  • The School of Business offers two minor options for non-GWSB students:
    • Minor in Business Administration (no application, simply turn in the form to your home school advisor)
    • Minor in Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (Coming Fall 2018!)
      • School of Business Students may pursue this minor under the following conditions: 
        • BBA students must select a minor outside of the School of Business to fulfill their degree requirement; this minor may only serve as a second minor. 
        • BBA students concentrating in Innovation & Entrepreneurship may not complete this minor. 
        • BAccy and BS students may pursue this minor as their degrees do not require a minor. 
  • The School of Business offers one major for non-GWSB students:

If you need assistance selecting your degree, major, concentration, and/or minor, please schedule an appointment with a GWSB advisor.
