Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2019

The MA in Development, Management and Policy is a comprehensive program and takes place in Buenos Aires. The professors are hands-on, helpful and attentive. The fellow students are engaging and also very helpful. I highly recommend this program to other students of public policy, international relations, political science, Latin American studies, or development. Spanish ability is definitely a must!

Georgetown Security Studies provides excellent preparation and networking opportunities for careers in government policy and national security. Professors often work in the fields they teach and are very knowledgeable about the subject matter. Class sizes are small and Georgetown often has speakers from relevant career areas come to speak to students.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2018

Georgetown's Global Human Development program provides development practitioners the opportunity to strengthen their skills, challenge their concepts of effective development practice, and learn from world class staff. The program has a number of required courses intended to solidify knowledge and expertise in areas such as economics, statistics, and strategy development. My economics professors are not only incredibly well respected in their field, but are fantastic teachers. This was critical for me as before the program I did not have an economics background. Students also have access to a variety of courses across the Georgetown graduate schools such as the School of Foreign Service, the McDonough School of Business, and the McCourt School of Public Policy as well as courses offered by George Washington University and other nearby institutions. The program only accepts a small group of students per year, which fosters a strong bond and environment of collaboration within and between each cohort. I really love that the other students place learning above competition. The atmosphere among GHD students is extremely supportive. Since all students have varied professional experience I find that the cohort is a fantastic resource from which to learn. The alumni base is extremely active and willing to meet with current students to provide contacts or advice. The program requires students to work on a project of their choice in a developing country during the summer after their first year. The school funds this summer opportunity, which provides students the unique ability to explore different kind of work as well as various regions. Overall, I am really happy with my choice to attend Georgetown's GHD program.

Career services are exceptional and assist with finding meaningful internships as well as full time employment. The faculty is known for going out of their way to mentor students both in inside and outside the classroom and give practical career advice.

Georgetown University was a fantastic community for students who were interested in getting a challenging education: professors were thought-provoking, understanding, and willing to push students to consider angles and views to which they previously had no exposure. The School of Foreign Service in particular was great--the diversity of classes and students who took the time to thoroughly get to know the material and debate issues ranging from American politics to energy security to societal challenges in developing countries.

We have a smaller department, which provides a great support system. The collaborative nature greatly aids in developing your research. The location itself is rather expensive, but the stipend allows for comfortable living. There are tons of opportunities to further your research as well as enhancing your social life.
