 Georgetown’s highly experienced professors are active practitioners in their fields. The content of the program is precisely what I was looking for to advance my career. Also, Georgetown is in the middle of where the action is, DC, with many opportunities to interact with real policymakers.

 As a business owner, the program format is challenging at times; however, it is manageable. Once I was able to get into a routine and understand what was expected of me and my time outside the classroom; it became easier. Devoting a solid week to one particular subject removes all outside distractions and allows us to explore multiple aspects of one topic thoroughly and without bias.

From having difficult conversations to understanding relevant issues affecting my agency, I am prepared to meet the agency's mission. Not to mention, the promotion potential and other career opportunities the EMPL has provided.

 EMPL faculty have been so impressive, offering extensive professional experience and creating a truly engaging classroom environment. Each professor has been unique in their approach, yet so consistent in the depth of expert knowledge shared during the courses. This has made my EMPL experience quite rewarding.

 The program format is fantastic for a working professional. Having the classes spaced out allows one to focus on just one class at a time, which makes work and personal time more manageable. The program format also allows for a very short degree completion turnaround.
