What is Business?
A business degree is like insurance for your future. Along with being a near-universal major, business prepares students for a wide variety of careers with limitless opportunities. Quick – think of an industry or organization you’d love to be a part of. Whatever it is, a foundation in business can take you there. From noble nonprofits to Fortune 500 companies, an education in business can provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed.
What characteristics are built for business? Strong leadership and communication. The ability to solve problems, motivate others and make decisions. Math skills are definitely a plus! (You’ll need them to calculate all those profits.) Did we mention your future options will be endless? Accountant, financial analyst, human resources manager, PR specialist, marketing director, research analyst, legal analyst and many more.

Blueprint was the best part of my summer. It gave me a taste of college and helped me discover the type of college I would like to attend. I would not pass up a chance to do this program.
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her week at George Washington University! It was a wonderful experience.
By the second day we had each other laughing hysterically on our way back from the dining hall! I couldn’t believe how quickly we all became friends.
