Georgetown Public Relations Program Wins PRWeek ‘Program of the Year’ for Third Consecutive Year
Georgetown University’s Master of Professional Studies in Public Relations and Corporate Communications (PRCC) program has been chosen as PRWeek’s 2014 “Program of the Year.” This is Georgetown’s third consecutive win and sixth consecutive nomination.
“They say good things come in threes – for us that is our students, faculty and team,” said Denise Keyes, senior associate dean of Georgetown’s winning program.
The PRWeek award is the top education honor in the industry. Dean Keyes accepted the award at a gala ceremony in New York City on March 20, 2014.
‘Always on the Cutting Edge’
According to the PRWeek judges, “Georgetown University continues to cement its reputation as one of the world’s premier communications programs. It has true innovation baked into its core.”
The judges were impressed by several aspects of Georgetown’s program:
The popularity of the Georgetown PRCC program has grown in recent years, based largely on its in-demand course offerings. Another draw is the faculty, highly regarded leaders from firms like Edelman, Weber Shandwick, Felishman-Hillard, Allstate and AARP.
Students gain a global perspective on communications and public relations while learning to think strategically, present creative ideas and develop metrics to measure success. The applied curriculum prepares them to address critical business objectives and become leaders in the digital world.
Georgetown PRCC students form a tight-knit community of passionate communication professionals who are personally invested in their colleagues' success. Student committees, fellowships and real-world client challenges provide them with multiple opportunities to engage in dynamic networks while the new downtown campus of the School of Continuing Studies places them steps away from the top public relations and communications firms in Washington, D.C.
