What we do

For over 25 years, the Office of Executive Programs has existed to enhance the performance of individuals and organizations serving the public. It is our mission to develop leaders who make a difference in both their agencies and in the public policy arena.  We do so by delivering a wide range of nationally-recognized, interdisciplinary leadership development and public policy analysis programs throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Our Clients

The Office of Executive Programs:

  • Supports federal agencies which must provide their workforces with understandings appropriate to the 21st century.
  • Provides state and local agencies with knowledge about how to adapt to pressure for a more responsive government.
  • Develops problem-solving skills for non-profits and trains for-profits when they strive to positively impact public interest.
  • Educates officials of foreign governments to be more effective and transparent in an increasingly interconnected world.
Our Experience

Our courses are offered on campus, at partner sites in the region and around the country, and via distance learning technology around the world.  We draw on the School’s talented faculty and the wealth of practitioners in Washington, DC and beyond in the design and delivery of our programs. 

Most programs are long term partnerships, customized to the needs and objectives of sponsoring agencies. As a result, thousands of executives have benefited from programs ranging from weeklong seminars through certificates to graduate degrees.
