The MBA Certificate in Nonmarket Strategy and Business and Public Policy Elective Courses

The MBA Certificate in Nonmarket Strategy promotes a deeper understanding of the ways in which business success and principled leadership are shaped by regulatory, legal, political, cultural, and social forces beyond the market and the critical relationships and interactions among firms, government, and the public. Certificate study connects the strengths of the Georgetown McDonough faculty and the MBA curriculum to the rich resources of Washington, D.C.

The certificate offers Georgetown McDonough students unparalleled opportunities for sustained attention to and structured engagement at the intersection of business, economics, and public policy in Washington, D.C., while broadening and reinforcing an understanding of the theory and practice of nonmarket strategy in the classroom.
