Strategic Management and Public Policy (SMPP) is an integration of three fields, strategic management, ethics, business and public policy. All fields involve the linkage between organizations and their external environments, with strategic management focusing more on the internal organizations, and business and public policy focusing more on the external environments. Topics studied within the department which integrate these three fields include organizational missions and visions, macro-environmental scanning, corporate social responsibility, ethics, and governance, and environmental and social sustainability.
The GW School of Business administers the doctoral program with doctoral students selecting a field of study within it. The field of strategic management and public policy is composed of the subfields of strategic management, business and public policy, business ethics, social issues in management, and environmental management and policy. Students electing this field are expected to demonstrate expertise and use appropriate methods in the analysis and assessment of various facets of these subfields. Both quantitative and qualitative research skills are emphasized for a comprehensive understanding of key theoretical and empirical questions in the field.
