PPOL 549 - MIDP Capstone II
This two-semester course guides students through the process of completing an original analytical report related to international development policy for a real world client. The course provides an opportunity for students to apply their acquired knowledge and research skills from the MIDP program to actual policy problems faced by key development actors and learn how to provide technical support consistent with an organization’s needs and capabilities. Students work in small groups in consultation with a faculty member and a client. The classroom component of the course focuses on research design, data collection and analysis, as well as the consulting process, including key challenges related to working in groups and with clients. The client component of the course consists in the development and presentation of a professional-quality report analyzing the problem an organization is seeking to tackle, suggesting different alternatives, and making recommendations for implementation.
