Welcome to The Washington Campus

Public Policy Education for Business Leaders

UPDATE: The Washington Campus plans to return to supporting in-person, in-D.C. open enrollment MBA and EMBA programming beginning in October 2021, subject to changing conditions and restrictions.  In addition, the Campus will continue to support online options each semester for both MBA and MBA Health open enrollment programming going forward.  Please reference the event calendar below for 2021-2022 program dates.
All that we teach to current and future business leaders is more important than ever - i.e., how to strategically, effectively, and ethically manage public affairs and public policy. This includes the ever-more critical need for effective public-private partnerships in order to better prevent, mitigate, and recover from challenges like the crises we are currently in - and those the future may hold. We greatly appreciate the ongoing support and engagement of our partner schools, our fantastic students and alumni, and our incredibly generous faculty speakers. Be well, stay well.

The Washington Campus is a non-profit, non-partisan, higher education association. Our mission is to promote and support public affairs and public policy education for current and future organizational leaders. With a focus on supporting its member and partner institutions here in Washington, D.C., the Campus is a unique organization that plays an essential role in helping expand and enrich management education.
The Washington Campus programs are intensive educational and professional development courses, ranging from one to five days or more, based in Washington, D.C. Program faculty consist of policy and public affairs experts, political and government leaders, and other key players from business, associations, media, think tanks, and NGOs. Our faculty’s in-depth, first-hand insights help prepare current and future organizational leaders to think and act more strategically regarding government, public affairs, and public policy. Current and future for-profit, non-profit, and public sector executives gain valuable perspectives on how government and public policy affects their organizations and industries, as well as their careers and communities. Participants learn how to craft and implement more successful strategies to manage these forces, including how to ethically and effectively influence the public policy process. All Campus programs incorporate site visits to government offices and agencies, and to other historic and important D.C. locations, so that participants better understand the actual places and players that shape and make policy.
