Â?Working with Government,Â? Executive Education Program, June 26-28, 2005 in Washington, DC

Wharton Executive Education will host, Working with Government, a 3-day Wharton Fellows program in Washington, D.C., June 26-28, 2005 at the Ritz-Carlton in Georgetown.

What are the implications of shifts in global politics, reorganizations such as the creation of the Office of Homeland Security in the United States, the rise of e-government are reshaping government, and other emerging changes for working with governments around the world?

This high-impact program will explore how government works, how governments are changing, and how corporations can work more effectively with government. Senior executives will learn lessons from examining how government is reinventing itself and how to apply these strategies to their own organizations. They will also gain inside-the-beltway insights on the new role of government in shaping industries.

Wharton Fellows is a life-long learning network of thought leaders — senior executives, Wharton faculty, and leading experts — that provides critical knowledge and network decision support to proactively meet business challenges. As part of the Wharton Fellows program, a series of Master Classes are held at locations around the world so that executives can get essential first-hand access and gain insights into critical global business issues.

While the setting for this Master Class is Washington D.C. and the speakers are primarily from U.S. government, participants from around the world will be in attendance to share their experiences, as many of the issues addressed are relevant in a global context.

Session topics include:

• The Changing Government Scene: Perspectives from the Council for Excellence in Government
