Many of our accountancy professors have ties to high-profile firms and agencies. They work hard to provide students with unprecedented access to executives, government officials and internships. The students, in turn, get unusual hands-on experience, such as the opportunity to study the stock market in a classroom that looks like a Wall Street trading venue. Accountancy at GW’s School of Business has its own undergraduate degree: Bachelor of Accountancy.
Developed by GW’s College of Professional Studies, this bachelor’s degree completion program is for the individual who currently holds an associate's degree or has earned at least 60 credit hours toward their undergraduate degree.
The world of business is broad, dynamic and ever evolving. GW students acquire the base disciplines that give them strong business knowledge. But they are also given unusual experiential opportunities. They undertake internships at places like the World Bank and the White House, they examine case studies that look beyond the bottom line to also explore ethics, they do problem-solving for real corporations and they have contact with high-profile executives willing to talk about the challenges of their industries.
GW’s Clinical Management and Leadership program is aimed at health sciences professionals such as nurses, laboratory technicians, therapists and radiographers. It provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to obtain clinical management and leadership positions within clinical and health care organizations.
This field continues to evolve. New discoveries and practices open career opportunities in the development of products—including drugs, devices, biologics and vaccines—and treatments to improve patient health.
Students explore how people find meaning in an abstract world, how this meaning creates alternatives, how to decide on a meaningful course of action, how to live with the choices we make and how we share these choices with others. Communication events are examined intrapersonally, didactically, in small groups, in organizations, across cultures and in public settings.
One of the social and behavioral science disciplines in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, the program examines the historical development of criminal justice and its evolution into modern legal systems.

The study of economics investigates the consequences of scarcity, which forces people, organizations and governments to choose among competing objectives. Economics looks at these choices and how they affect the production of goods and services, market prices, national output, unemployment, inflation, economic growth and the use and distribution of resources within and across nations.

The GW Department of Mathematics is committed to high-quality teaching and research. The undergraduate mathematics major has three tracks: pure, applied and computational. Each is designed to give students a solid background in the theory and practice of modern mathematics.
Statistics plays an important role throughout society, providing methodologies for making advances in medicine, genetics and other research arenas and for making decisions in business and public policy. At GW, students learn the reasoning and methods for analyzing and understanding data. They also explore how those skills can be applied to develop new initiatives. Statistics is one of the natural, mathematical and biomedical sciences programs in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences.
