The Washington Campus

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 repeated in seven different sessions in Washington, D.C., providing participants with first-hand exposure to the political process and its impact on management.


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 three-hour exam to receive credit toward their MBA degree.

In addition to the Washington Campus offering through the business school, joint degree students can also opt to join the Washington D.C. Summer Law program, where students will have the opportunity to work in externships, accompanied by high-quality academic coursework. The focus of this course work is on “The Ethics of Washington Lawyering,” and is taught by a faculty member of the Moritz College of Law.


The Oxford Campus

Students interested in a more international program can also opt to join the existing Oxford program in Great Britain. Over the summer, students will be taught at the University of Oxford by both the Moritz College of Law and British faculty on topics such as Comparative Sales and Product Liability Law, European Union Law, or Comparative Employment Discrimination Law.

In addition to participating in the summer program, there is also the opportunity for our JD/MBA students to participate in the "Semester in Oxford" program.
