Strategic Leadership: Business and the Public Policy Process

Fisher College of Business is a member of The Washington Campus, a consortium of business schools that host seminars designed to equip students with the understanding necessary to anticipate, influence, and respond intelligently to government initiatives.

This seminar is an intensive, one-week course in Washington, D.C., providing participants with first-hand exposure to the political process and its impact on business leadership.

Preparation

Several weeks prior to the seminar, students will be mailed a packet of brief readings that prepare for the vigorous class discussions and presentations during the time on The Washington Campus.

Class discussion is led by a faculty member, joined by guest lecturers from government, politics, business, and the media. At the end of the seminar, students will take a two-hour exam to receive credit toward their MBA degree.
