Meet our Students
McCourt has an ideal combination of academic and applied professors, which makes it suitable for students with varying academic and career backgrounds.
The ability to intern on the Senate Finance Committee, the ACLU, and the World Bank all during my first year at McCourt has been a critical component of applying my degree to the real world.
The best part of my experience so far has been learning from the fantastic speakers that Georgetown hosts, from elected officials to political strategists to private sector professionals.
