Applied Policy Seminar

Description

The Ford Schools Applied Policy Seminar is a semester-long Masters level course (PP578) that engages students in a supervised consulting project with a real-world client. Teams of 3-5 students work with a faculty coordinator and client representative to: develop a project work plan; collect relevant materials and information; conduct research and analysis; prepare a written report; and present findings and recommendations to the client. Students are expected to produce professional-quality work at minimal cost to the client. Local, state, national, and international clients are welcome as are all sectors (private, public, non-profit).
