If you are charged with building talent to grow your GovCon business, if you are ready to take your career to the highest leadership level, then rest assured that the Mason GovCon Executive Education Course, Building GovCon Acumen, is the course for you.

The most recent six-day course ran from October 17 to 20, 2016, with additional sessions on November 3 and 14.

How do you keep your company on top while dealing with budget sequestration and increased competition for government contracts? These are just a few of the topics explored by engaging with GovCon industry leaders who shared personal and professional experience that you can use form Day 1. And, yes, there is also a side-benefit. It will enable you to expand your business network with the speakers and the course attendees.
