Gdynia, Poland

Gdynia is the city of the Pomeranian Voivodeship of Poland and an important seaport of Gdansk Bay on the south coast of the Baltic Sea. The population total is 247,799.

Gdynia is the most similar to Business Week in Washington. Students speak fairly fluent English, practice leadership, and are eager to get hands-on learning about business through our simulation and product design. The university is a short 10-minute walk from the hotel. Program hours are roughly 8:30am – 8:30pm, Sunday – Friday and both our Business and Advanced Business programs are available at this location.

Adult volunteers will stay at a local hotel throughout the program and American students will stay the school dormitory during the program, and in a hotel when they arrive approximately 3 days before the program commences. WBW will help to coordinate American student travel with an adult volunteer.

Program cost for American students: 

  • $100 registration fee
  • Airfare
  • Spending money (optional)

*Financial aid is not available for international programs

Thank you to our Gdynia Business Week Sponsors!

Being a Company Advisor at the 2016 Gdynia Business Week Program was truly life changing and fulfilling. The wonderful students on my team amazed me by the strength of their character, their intelligence, their desire to learn and improve themselves. Each one of these students was so impressive in their own way and just fun to be with. What an opportunity it was for me to be part of this unique and wonderful program.
