What Our Clients Are Saying
The McCourt School works with a wide variety of clients to provide participants with the knowledge and skills they need to benefit their organizations in tangible ways.
This was one of the best courses I have taken. I am confident these are skills I will use in my current job and my future jobs.
The instructors were well prepared and the students learned a lot from the lectures’ strong presentation skills. Overall, all students deepened their understanding of U.S public policy and refined their sensitivity as government officials.
I really enjoyed the class because I learned a variety of things from how to manage conflicts, to encouraging people to follow, to how to work easily with others. I hope to come back for another course soon.
I liked the opportunity to address real life situations and have a forum for honest and open debate.
The course was very relevant and the delivery was excellent
