Course description

The Business of Aging in the Longevity Economy

As we continue to live longer and healthier lives, it is vital that we develop innovative solutions to support the aging and their caregivers to enable fulfilling and comfortable living for all. These solutions require a multidisciplinary approach to construct healthier understandings of aging and build a more age-integrated society.

The Business of Aging in the Longevity Economy will introduce you to the interdisciplinary field of aging, important concepts of senior living administration, and to the master of science degree at Georgetown University in Aging & Health. This three-module course is appropriate for anyone interested in learning about aging personally or professionally, including college graduates who are interested in aging social and policy issues as well as mid-career or encore-career students who seek professional advancement or a shift in career track.

We feature faculty experts who address the following topics:

  • The rapidly aging world
  • The collapse of the “Three Legged Stool of Caregiving”
  • The demand for new aging services workers
  • The new health concerns in older adults: Loneliness
  • The future of aging, including markets and needs for “nana” technologies and senior housing

In this context, we will take you on a virtual tour of a senior living community and hear first-hand from industry experts on the business models being implemented. We will also hear from students in the Aging and Health Masters’ program who will share their insights as they prepare to enter the workforce.
