Goberna logo

The excitement is mounting this fall as Miami Dade College teams with the Ortega-Marañón Foundation (Spain) to launch Goberna Las Américas – Miami, a School of Public Policy, Government and Management, which held opening ceremonies on Nov. 13.

Goberna Las Américas – Miami is designed to be an educational training ground for current and future senior-level private and public sector leaders in the Americas. It is geared toward those individuals who have an interest in politics and government, public administration, communications, political strategy and specific key policy issues, including some of the following: migration, security, fiscal responsibility, decentralization, gender equality and law and judicial transparency. Goberna Las Américas – Miami offers professional certificates and executive courses that can be taken in person in Miami, through distance learning and/or a combination of both. Students who fully complete at least six courses can potentially validate their work at the prestigious Instituto Universitario de Investigación Ortega y Gasset in Spain.

Starting with a stimulating conference on Nov. 13-14, “Encounter on Democracy and Citizenship” brought together high-level leaders from throughout the Americas — individuals with established track records who are developing the public agendas in their respective countries.

The following week, Goberna Las Américas – Miami began its senior-level executive courses on Nov. 17-20 with two programs, “Citizen Security/Civilian Safety” and “Migration Policies and Diversity Management.” These courses will be offered in Spanish only.
