Student Organizations

Getting Involved in GWSB

There are many ways that undergraduate students can get involved in the GW School of Business. One outstanding way to get involved at GW is to join an undergraduate student organization. GW undergraduate student organizations are supported by the Office of Student Life in the Division for Student Affairs. You can learn more about the 500+ student organizations that are active at GW by visiting the virtual GW Engage platform.

GW Engage - Student Organization Platform

There are 24 undergraduate student organizations that are currently affiliated with the GW School of Business via the Undergraduate Business Association. These organizations provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to get more involved in GWSB and to explore different industries and interests within the field of business.

The Undergraduate Business Association (UBA)

The Undergraduate Business Association (UBA) is an umbrella organization that unites 24 undergraduate student organizations that are affiliated with the UBA. The UBA is led by an Executive Board of student leaders that coordinates and plans events for the GWSB undergraduate student body. Example programs include their bi-annual Back to Business student organization fair, UBA Cafes, and Beyond the Concentration industry and networking event.

Additionally, through co-programming and sponsorship of UBA Affiliate Organization programs and events, the UBA fosters collaboration and awareness within the GW School of Business. The UBA works directly with faculty, administration, and students to strengthen the GWSB community.
