Resources for Students

Resources for Alumni
We are committed to our students’ professional success, even after they graduate. McCourt School alumni can take advantage of a variety of career development resources.
Given McCourt’s location in Washington, DC, I was able to intern at the U.S. Department of the Treasury and White House Office of Science and Technology Policy while taking classes. These internships became formative experiences in my graduate school career. Lastly, and most importantly, the peer and faculty network I encountered at McCourt was invaluable.
