FIU College of Business Partners with Georgetown University for International Business and Public Policy Program

May 2, 2019

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2019--Florida International University’s College of Business (FIU Business) has partnered with Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business to deliver a specialized International Business and Public Policy Program.

The five-day program is designed to provide executives and other professionals with the tools they need to navigate the influence and impact of U.S. governmental policies, programs and regulations on the private sector.

“As the U.S. implements dramatic changes in its trade, investment and financial policies, from a renegotiated NAFTA, to tariff increases and sanctions against a number of countries, and as foreign businesses and investors are subjected to more regulation, the relevance and timeliness of this new program are significant,” said Jerry Haar, executive director of executive and professional education at FIU Business. “Our aim to help business leaders and other professionals thoroughly understand the nexus between business and government policy is what makes this program so unique.”

Scheduled for September 9 – 13, the program begins at FIU Business in Miami, with courses on global business, innovation, leadership, strategy, supply chain management, and digital and social media. The Miami part of the program also includes a visit to Visa’s Innovation Center in Miami.

The second part will be held at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business in Washington, D.C., and will cover foreign market development, business promotion and trade and investment with the Americas. Participants will visit the Inter-American Development Bank as well as Capitol Hill and meet with business associations and advocacy organizations.

“In a time of increased government involvement in business and competitiveness issues, it is vital to grasp the dynamic context of the political and economic forces at work in Washington, D.C.,” said Charles Skuba, senior associate dean for custom executive education at Georgetown University McDonough School of Business. “I am delighted that McDonough School of Business and FIU Business can offer Latin American executives a great combination of expertise and experience in a customized International Business and Public Policy executive certificate program.”
