“At Rockefeller, I had an excellent opportunity to learn about public administration
and public policy practices and responses around the globe. The student body is diverse—different backgrounds, professions, home countries—and willing to share knowledge. The professors are equipped with practical experiences and lessons learned from the largest U.S. and international public and private entities. The course work at Rockefeller, including discussion and debate on the current impact of the global financial crisis on budgets, planning, and development assistance was critical in preparing me for my job at the U.N.”
