For 50 years, Duke has been preparing students for public policy careers that address today’s complex issues.

Sanford strives to bridge the gap between their academic experience and the world of work through internships and jobs that require them to use strong analytical skills to solve problems facing decision makers in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.

Sanford invites employers to be partners in training future leaders, as intern sponsors or first employers of stellar graduates. In return, the Sanford School’s Office of Career Services helps employers attract the best talent, graduates from highly ranked public policy programs.
