Meet our Students

The program format is fantastic for a working professional. Having the classes spaced out allows one to focus on just one class at a time, which makes work and personal time more manageable.

The professors brought expertise in their fields that enriched our learning.

At Georgetown, I was able to draw on a wealth of real-world public sector knowledge to participate in a course that was relevant, worthwhile and with a global perspective.
