Welcome to the Business, Society and Public Policy Initiative …

Throughout these pages you will come to learn more about the dynamic work of the McDonough School of Business and Georgetown University in tackling the critical issues of the 21st century in the intersection of global business, society, and government.

Most importantly, we are affording our students a greater focus on the challenges and opportunities facing them as future business executives.  At the same time we are strengthening our comparative advantage by providing an effective forum and venue for our business and political leaders to confront effectively matters of concern to people in our own backyard and around the world.

In launching this initiative, we are forging new ground with nine dynamic centers and initiatives within Georgetown McDonough and tapping into the expertise of a world-class faculty. We also are working in tandem with other schools throughout Georgetown and forging important strategic relationships beyond the gates of the university.

In addition, our distinguished, proactive Board of Advisors is giving us the kind of counsel and support that will be invaluable to our long-term success.

Everyone involved with the Business, Society, and Public Policy Initiative recognizes the precarious times in which we live.  This effort allows us to take an even more active role on the frontlines for our students, our faculty, and the general public.     

Thank you for your interest.  Please know how much we will appreciate any suggestions or support you can lend to this significant effort now and in the days to come.

All the best,

James P. Moore, Jr.

About the Initiative

Housed at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business, the Business, Society, and Public Policy Initiative will ensure that the student experience includes an emphasis on the impact that public decision making can have on the dynamism of business and, in turn, the extraordinary influence business can have on society. The initiative also will provide a platform for faculty research and a nonpartisan, global venue to address critical business issues of the day.


Board of Advisors

The Georgetown Business, Society, and Public Policy Initiative has assembled an advisory board comprising proven leaders in business, government, and society to provide direction to the initiative.
