What You’ll Study

You’ll develop your skills in advocacy and policy formulation while thinking deeply, honing your communication skills, and getting hands-on experience to sharpen your resume.
You’ll develop strategic thinking with respect to market characteristics and public policy, and you’ll develop critical thinking on economic systems and their relationship to political and ecological realities.
