BROOKINGS EXECUTIVE EDUCATION Our partnership with Washington University in St. Louis offers courses for federal employees that explore critical issues, the policymaking process, and public leadership.
This in-depth course on the federal budget process examines the methods that go into formulating both the president’s budget and the congressional budget and, ultimately, authorization and appropriations.
Walk the corridors of the Capitol, and witness the legislative process firsthand in this fast-paced, in-depth course. Hear from members of Congress, and observe floor action in the House of Representatives and the Senate as you explore how bills are initiated, written, and passed.
How can you best determine what is truly in the public’s interest? How do you decide between two “right” positions? This program will help you develop a new self-awareness as well as tools for moral reasoning and a robust ethical framework to assist in everyday decision making. Explore the meaning of integrity, values, and beliefs, and how these shape our behaviors and direct our actions.
Daring to Lead, a weeklong residential program, addresses a competency rarely honed: courage. Courage is a mindset that allows you to face and conquer daunting situations. Daring to Lead will be held at Olin Business School on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis.
