The DGP Intensive Course-only Program

During the week-long intensive, students learn how international and non-governmental organizations in Geneva are addressing today’s most pressing global challenges.  We offer three different tracks:

  1. Environment, Energy, and the Economy
  2. Global Health
  3. Humanitarian Crises, Refugees, and Human Rights

The week includes meetings with approximately 20 practitioners, site visits to Geneva-based IGOs and NGOs, networking events, professional coaching, group case simulations, and a culminating policy memo assignment. It’s a rigorous week that shapes students’ professional and personal ambitions.

    An Experience of a Lifetime

Completion of the week-long intensive course with an associated research project will enable the student to earn 3.0 credits through the Duke University Graduate School. Participants should confirm that their home institutions will accept the 3.0 academic credits awarded in the course. After the participants have fulfilled all course requirements, they may request an official Duke transcript. Participants are responsible for insuring credit transfer to their home institution.
