Introduction to the course This program provides participants interested in learning more about the financial role of the private, government, and nonprofit sectors in the U.S. and around the world an opportunity to work and interact with key players and experts in areas such as business environment, corporate responsibility and ethics, and the intersections of business and government. During the 15 weeks of the program, you will complete internships from Tuesday to Friday in organizations located in Washington D.C., attend weekly classes and participate in activities that The Washington Center will organize. You will also complete assignments, exams and simulations.
Internship As the primary component of their experience, each student will be placed in an internship with an organization that fits their interests and the skills they possess and hope to learn. Students intern four days a week and The Washington Center guarantees the internship will feature 80% substantive work, thus ensuring each student receives meaningful on-the-job training by contributing significantly to their internship site.
Internship sites could include private companies, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and non-governmental organizations. Average hours are 32-36 for the internship component.
Academic Course Student are required to complete an academic course. The course meets one night per week for 3 hours. TWC faculty includes adjunct professors from local universities including Georgetown University, George Washington University, and Johns Hopkins University, among others. Faculty members are practitioners with terminal degrees in their field.
Programming Over the course of their 15-weeks in Washington, D.C. students are required to attend a series of events during which they will hear from and interact with experts and leaders from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. These events include large group sessions for TWC's entire student body and program-oriented events that address specific topics and offer smaller, more intimate opportunities for students.
Civic Engagement Project During the semester, students are required to complete a civic engagement project. This project can take many forms including individual volunteer efforts addressing a specific issue, working with others in a community to solve a problem, or interacting with institutions that advance social or political causes.

Assignments include a goal statement outlining what they hope to accomplish during the semester and other reflective assignments meant to help them think more deeply about what they are learning.
