McCourt Ambassadors


“I chose McCourt primarily because of the MIDP program. I was searching for a school or program where I could focus on international policy (not focusing in the US, but mainly in developing countries), and McCourt offered it through a well-designed, high-quality program. Other aspects that made me choose the MIDP in McCourt were being in a small cohort and with more experienced classmates. ”

Duana Blach’s Profile

“To me, there was no better place to study policy than in Washington, DC. Not only did McCourt fit that criterion, but also offered so much more. I was interested in a quantitative-driven curriculum as well as renowned and reputable faculty; I knew I was going to be challenged in the right ways and taught by leaders in the policy world.”

“I chose McCourt because of its location in Washington DC, which provides a wealth of networking and career opportunities for policy students. The school’s faculty is one of the best in the world, and McCourt’s curriculum stood out to me due to its diverse core competencies, focus on quantitative skills, and the opportunity to do a Client Capstone my second year.”

Commitment to Inclusion

Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy aspires to become the most inclusive public policy school in the nation. Inclusivity is a core value at McCourt because public policies are more effective when our political and policy decision makers reflect the perspectives and lived experience of the communities they serve, and being able to work across differences is a fundamental skill we seek to cultivate.
