The Washington Campus offers a unique, intensive, five day residency program in Washington, D.C., for MBA and other graduate and professional students, "Managing Business, Government and Public Policy." This program focuses on how specific organizations and industries are affected by public policy, how policy is made and "Washington works"; and how public affairs and public policy can be effectively and ethically managed to create profitable and sustainable "win-win" solutions for business, government and society.
The complete course includes: pre-readings, course sessions and activities, a final written exam on the last day, and a team project due two weeks after the course is completed. The program runs Monday-Friday from approximately 8:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m., with a 4:00 p.m. close on Friday. The Washington Campus sends final grades to the students' universities, which awards the final grades and three credit hours.
In addition, The Washington Campus offers at least one MBA program each year focused on Health Care Policy. The structure and flow of the MBA Health Care Policy course is similar to the MBA Business and Public Policy course, but with an emphasis on health care topics, speakers, and organizations. For more information, visit our Health Care Policy page.
