All incoming students are required to participate in our orientation events in the lead up to the upcoming semester. New Student Orientation will provide incoming students with an overview of their academic programs as well as an introduction to the support and resources offered to graduate students at the GW School of Business. It will also provide an opportunity to meet your fellow students and faculty from your programs.

The details of your orientation schedule will depend on your degree program. For specific details on your program’s orientation, please select from the links below.
