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.

 

Social Security Administration

We worked with the Social Security Administration to deliver a five-day class at their location for 25 employees. The class was a comprehensive training in public policy analysis. Participants learned how to succinctly and incisively define a policy problem, assemble data and evidence, construct policy alternatives, select the decision criteria, and write a compelling memo on preferred policy alternatives.

“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.”

 

Tokyo Metropolitan Government 

We worked with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) to design a customized learning experience for TMG officials in which we provide a 10-week series in which they study English and attend lectures on all facets of the public policy process and relevant institutions.  Two of the employees stay for a full year and earn a Master’s Degree in Policy Management.

“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.

 

Rethink Haiti

We worked with the non-profit group Rethink Haiti to deliver a three-day class at our Washington, DC location. The class was a comprehensive training for new leaders. Participants engaged in lessons and activities on conflict resolution, entrepreneurship, negotiation skills, and change management.

“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.”

 

Organization of American States

We worked with the Organization of American States to deliver a five-day course at our Washington, DC location. This executive education program focused on state-of-the-art policy management and innovation for experienced OAS-member states’ senior policy makers. Employing case studies and other interactive learning methods, the program covered: leading policy and organizational change, developing public-private partnerships, improving accountability and reducing corruption, policy evaluation, and fiscal management.

“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.”
