Executive Custom Programs
Georgetown's McDonough School of Business works with U.S. and global companies and organizations to custom-build executive education programs that are tailored to advance their goals, objectives, management and leadership skills, and results. Our unique, cross-sector experience, and global perspective, provides executives with the knowledge and skills that organizations need to boost their impact in today's changing and competitive environment – and achieve a distinct return on their investment in executive education.
Our customized curriculum can range from one day, to a full week, or even monthly for up to two years. Program designers draw from Georgetown University faculty and guest lecturers from across the U.S. national capital region and beyond. The individualized curriculum and activities combine classroom and offsite experiences such as field visits to relevant businesses and organizations, and offer a chance for participants to experience the eclectic international culture of Washington, D.C.
Georgetown's strength in U.S. and global business, and location in Washington, D.C., at the nexus of private enterprise, public policy, advanced technology, and the international community, allows us to tailor our programs to different needs, sectors, regions, cultures, or countries.
Building a Custom Program
Our staff and academic directors will work with your organization to design a program that meets your specific needs, investment plans, and time commitments. Together, we assess your needs, develop curriculum and courses, and shape the program delivery process. We then identify a combination of Georgetown's faculty, industry experts, government officials, and corporate leaders who are best suited to deliver the program. We consult with you throughout delivery of the program, make adjustments as necessary, and debrief with you after the program is completed.
We have professional program staff on hand to oversee the details of program delivery and ensure a successful Executive Custom Program experience.
Georgetown offers a variety of methods for customizing the delivery of the curriculum to meet each client's individual needs, including lectures, classroom discussions, case-study role playing, teamwork, problem solving, simulation, idea sharing, and focused brainstorming. We also provide off-site experiences including field visits to relevant businesses and organizations. We can deliver our programs at the Georgetown University campus or at any learning center around the world.
Our Executive Custom Programs specialize in a multitude of areas, drawing upon the expertise of our faculty, the real-world experience of the guest lecturers we attract, and the varied locations around the globe where we have business-world connections.
