Mark R. Kennedy Professor of political management and director of the Graduate School of Political Management, George Washington University

The Hon. Mark Kennedy writes on how to apply 360° Vision to bridge differences between business and society; the political left and right; the United States and the world.

Kennedy's unmatched combination of global experiences in business - expanding Häagen Dazs globally, serving as Treasurer of Macy's; politics - U.S. Congressman, international trade advisor under both Presidents Bush and Obama and now leading George Washington University's Graduate School of Political Management fuels his passion for encouraging leaders to develop and discover new opportunities to bridge differences in order to succeed in life, politics, business, and world affairs.

Professor Kennedy has lectured at leading universities around the world, including the University of Pennsylvania, New York University, the Johns Hopkins University, the London Business School, HEC Paris, University of International Business and Economics (Beijing), Meiji University (Tokyo), the National University of Singapore, Fundação Getúlio Vargas (São Paulo, Brazil) and Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico).

Kennedy serves as chairman of the Economic Club of Minnesota. He is a member of the Economic Club of Washington and Chatham House in London.

John King of CNN said, “Kennedy doesn’t ignore the elephant in the room; to the contrary, he looks it straight in the eye.” Fred Barnes of FOX News called Kennedy “bold and smart.”

Kennedy has a record of effective collaboration. While a Republican congressman, he partnered with 20 Democrats to introduce and lead several pieces of legislation, and more than half of the Democrats in the U.S. House cosponsored one of his bills.
