EMBA Programs

The Washington Campus offers customized Executive MBA D.C. residency courses in partnership with individual institutions, as well as Open-Enrollment EMBA and Executive Health Care Policy courses that are open to EMBA students from any accredited institution.

You may register now on our homepage for the Open EMBA or Open Executive Health Care Policy programs.


Customized Executive MBA Courses

The Washington Campus Executive MBA and other executive graduate courses (Executive MPP, MPA, MPH, MHA, etc.) are designed in close coordination with partner institutions from around the world. These typically are customized programs ranging from one day to one week or more. Executive students enjoy an interesting and enriching experience in Washington, D.C., while earning anywhere from one to four credits toward their degree, and completing a distinctive certificate course.

Participants learn from leading policy makers and influencers such as Members of Congress, the Executive Branch, regulatory authorities, and business leaders such as corporate, industry, and association executives, as well as leading members of the media, think tanks, embassies, global institutions, and NGOs.

Campus Executive MBA and executive graduate courses help develop leaders for higher-level, general management roles, and introduce them to more diverse professional and career opportunities. For U.S. students, these Executive courses are an excellent, shorter complement to longer international trips. For non-U.S. students, our Executive MBA and executive graduate courses are a perfect immersion experience that helps them better understand both U.S. government and global institutions that have wide-ranging economic impacts.
