Ideal for working professionals, our program is designed to fit your schedule. We offer flexible options to take classes online, on campus, or through a combination of both—so you don’t have to interrupt your career to earn your degree. Better yet, you can directly apply everything you learn to make an immediate impact in the workplace.

Led by a faculty of communications practitioners and industry experts, our courses emphasize the contemporary practices that are in high demand by employers. You’ll develop the foundational knowledge, analytical thinking, and creative skills that position you to successfully lead cross-channel communications efforts that capture audiences and drive impact.

Throughout your time in the program, you’ll be challenged to reflect on your personal ethics. You’ll examine case studies of strong professional ethics within the context of IMC while developing your own personal code of ethics to guide you as you continue to advance both personally and professionally.

    One of the key factors of this program is that students get to discuss what they are learning, write thoughtful interpretations of the key learnings, learn from their peers' experiences, and apply the knowledge to their daily interactions. They make what they learn part of themselves.”

    The great thing about the IMC program was that I had the opportunity to learn from talented and experienced professionals working in the field of marketing and communications. This meant that professors took an applied approach to campaign planning, and I even got to work with clients on real-time IMC challenges. But what I enjoyed most about my time at Georgetown was the connections and friendships I made that will last a lifetime.”
