Executive MBA Courses

Executive MBA Courses

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.


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.

Open-Enrollment Executive MBA Courses

Each year The Washington Campus also offers open-enrollment Executive MBA courses to EMBA students from any accredited institution in the U.S. or abroad. These courses are most often three days in length. Participants arrange for awarding of specific academic credits as is appropriate with the policies of their home institutions. A typical program might include the following, as outlined the sample agenda below. Please note that specific agendas change each time according to the composition and interests of course participants, as well as the availability of venues and speakers.

For open-enrollment EMBA courses, you will be e-mailed more details a few weeks before the start of the program. Participants are expected to attend the entire program in order to receive graduate course credits; dress in appropriate business attire; and not use laptops during course sessions except in special circumstances. In order to gain access to certain government buildings, proper government-issued identification often is required.
