LeadershipBack to Arts and Humanities Institutes
This Institute will run on the following dates:
June 15 - June 22, 2014
Before beginning your collegiate career, engage in the Leadership Institute to enhance your ability to inspire and influence people to reach a collective goal. The Leadership Institute helps you develop your own leadership capabilities, style and ethical code. There is no better place to take this course than in Washington, DC, the international hub of leadership. Visit local corporations, government agencies, Capitol Hill offices and non-profit organizations where you can learn from those who make difficult decisions every day. As a Leadership Institute student, you will follow in the footsteps of presidents, CEOs, cabinet secretaries and foreign heads of state who have studied at Georgetown at some point in their academic careers. Our faculty is composed of leadership coaches who have worked with top executives. They will teach you what they have learned and test your skills through simulation exercises.
