From international trade regulations and agreements to cybersecurity and privacy rules, U.S. government policy has never had a greater impact on business than it does today. No matter how strategic, entrepreneurial, creative, agile and well-managed firms are, they cannot succeed without a thorough understanding of the relationship between government and business.

The International Business and Public Policy Program offered jointly by the business schools at Florida International University (FIU) and Georgetown University provides executives and other professionals with the tools they need to navigate the influence and impact of U.S. governmental policies, programs and regulations on the private sector. The five-day program begins at FIU’s College of Business (FIU Business) in Miami, Fla. with second part of the program held at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business in Washington, D.C. In addition to the coursework, there is a visit to Visa's Innovation Center in Miami and a visit to the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington.
