The study of policy at SIPA—be it international finance and economics, international security, climate change, energy, economic development, human rights, or global urban challenges—trains young leaders to engage multiple levels of governance and to reach effective solutions. Our curriculum provides our students the analytical training to address the world’s most pressing problems. We offer students a unique blend of academic learning, practical skills, and applied experience that will serve them throughout their careers. SIPA’s policy research and training cut across issues that are homegrown, cross-border, and international in nature.
