“Rockefeller’s interdisciplinary approach provided me with a comprehensive understanding of urban issues and gave me a competitive edge in the job market. You aren’t just learning about theoretical concepts; you are given the tools and strategies to make a difference in your field. The focus on solid research and thorough analysis at Rockefeller prepared me to work on complex policy issues in the field of urban policy and affordable housing. I consistently rely on strategies I learned in statistics, economics and decision-making courses. My professors helped me define research questions, identify solid and relevant sources, and conduct sound, thorough analysis of today’s most important issues.”
