International Development Studies M.A. Program
Steps from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, the Elliott School engages the Washington and global policy communities in meaningful discussions of development policy. The International Development Studies (IDS) graduate program is the fastest-growing program in the Elliott School of International Affairs. Under the leadership of former U.S. Agency for International Development official Professor Sean Roberts, this program trains the next generation of development practitioners, exposing them to the latest research, best practices from the field, and experiential learning opportunities.
