About the Centers

The Center for Business and Public Policy at the McDonough School of Business is uniquely positioned at Georgetown University to bring together, in a neutral forum, leaders from business, labor, government and public interest advocates to raise the level of debate and understanding of key business issues as they are affected by public policy.

The Capital Markets Research Center (CMRC) is an integral part of the educational programs of The McDonough School of Business. CMRC is an academic entity dedicated to developing and disseminating research and policy analysis on domestic and global financial issues. The Center pursues this mission by providing programs for the private and public sectors, as well as for academicians and students.
