Professional Seminar

Professional Seminars

The Graduate School of Political Management (GSPM) offers a broad array of professional educational courses designed to enhance the politics, communications, and advocacy skills and successes of individuals in an organization through two, three, or five days of intensive learning. Courses taught by regular members of the GSPM faculty utilize and impart the latest tools and tactics in the fields of applied politics, communications, advocacy, or governance.

Our open enrollment seminars are periodically available throughout the year for qualified organizations on a first-come, first serve basis. Custom designed seminars can be constructed in these topical areas around the specialized needs of corporations and organizations.

Some sample seminar topics include:

  • Global Perspective Residency courses in locations around the globe
  • Campaign seminar: A one or two week program outlining the latest campaign tools and techniques
  • Governance seminar: A DC based program teaching the best practices in applied politics
  • Custom seminars: We can develop a program to address you politics, communications, or advocacy need


Through extensive consultations, GSPM will work with an organization to tailor the design, delivery, and logistics to the specific needs and goals of your group.
