Political Economy

Georgetown is a leader in research and teaching on issues around the emerging political economy.

In the Walsh School of Foreign Service, the Mortara Center for International Studies is home to active research programs in this area, and related international majors include international political economy, global business, and international politics. The College also offers a major in political economy, which focuses on globalization, international trade and finance, regulation, and development. The McDonough School of Business addresses intersections of politics and the economy in its undergraduate and graduate program and through its Global Business Initiative and several research centers. Georgetown’s D.C. location provides the perfect backdrop for study in these areas, as it is home to the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and other leading economic institutions.
