A Close-Knit Community of Development Practitioners

OLIVIA NESBIT, GHD'18

"The GHD faculty, students, staff, and alumni form a close, interconnected group of peers and mentors who have really made my experience in the program that much more valuable."

 

TAMEEM AL-TALABANI, GHD'18

"[The faculty] were wonderful; and interacting with second year students made it easy for me to understand the mindset of the class and the faculty in terms of writing papers and studying the readings."

 

DEEPIKA RAMACHANDRAN, GHD'17

"I feel incredibly grateful to be surrounded by friends and colleagues who challenge and inspire me everyday!"

 

 

ARI GANDOLFO, GHD'17

"The small size of this program - there are just 27 students in our cohort, compared to 220 in other programs I considered - creates a level of intimacy that is unparalleled in other graduate programs. We do not merely take classes and work on group projects together and then go our separate ways; the GHD community blends into our social lives as well. In a short time span these people have become incredibly important to me, and I'm proud to call them classmates, colleagues, and great friends."
