Executive Master of Professional Studies in Global Strategic Communications

Program Leadership

Welcome to the Executive Master of Professional Studies in Global Strategic Communications at Georgetown University.

The responsibilities of professional communicators within organizations grow more complex each day. As a result of the emergence of new technologies and the splintering of media, communicators have more opportunities than ever before to expand beyond the traditional role. The communications executives have become the integrator, as well as educator to not only the C-suite, but for all employees and stakeholders as they work across time zones and cultures.

Embracing these changes, we designed the executive master’s program in Global Strategic Communications to fully prepare leaders for these new roles. Our cohort will travel the world through residencies in London, Singapore, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., where students will explore the communications landscape across cultures. 

Throughout the duration of the yearlong program, students will have the opportunity to interact with top communication officers, global business executives, nonprofit leaders, and educators, gaining a deeper understanding of today’s complex and evolving communications industry. The hybrid curriculum will expand students’ horizons to fast-growing areas such as corporate social responsibility, global stakeholder engagement, investor relations, and leadership.

Understanding your individual strengths is the cornerstone of all good leaders; as such, we focus on accelerating each student’s leadership development. Students will work one-on-one with a leadership coach, examine their personal leadership styles, and sharpen the skills needed to lead effectively. Our goal is to prepare students with the strategic mindset and advanced leadership competencies needed to face the sophisticated challenges and opportunities of the future.

We look forward to welcoming you into the Georgetown community and empowering you with a global vision and the well-rounded skills that are required to lead as trusted advisors, educators, and integrators in today’s organizations.
