Explore the business community in Washington, D.C., and network with employers and KSB alumni.

Program Details

You know that Washington, D.C., is a dynamic city at the intersection of business and government—but did you ever wonder just how capital moves into, out of, and through the city on a daily basis?

Join the Kogod School of Business on a corporate site visit tour (August 2022, 2013), designed just for freshmen, where you'll get an inside look at some of D.C.'s intriguing companies in industries ranging from sports, entertainment, non-profit, finance, marketing, restaurant management and beyond.

Gain a new perspective of what a career in business could look like for you while hearing advice from AU alumni and business professionals in the region during six corporate site visits. In addition, student participants will get a jump start on career planning during a workshop from the Kogod Center for Career Development and have an opportunity to meet a Kogod faculty member and Peer Mentor. 

Be invested in your future career. Join us for this exciting experience!


The program fee is $115 and includes meals and transportation as well as other program materials.
