"The summer program was an excellent deep dive into the roles of various actors in formulating U.S. foreign policy and promoting the U.S. national interest. The class comprised a good mix of young students and more experienced practitioners of public policy. A key strength of the program was the quality of guest speakers who were all intimately involved in shaping U.S. foreign policy, be they from the public or private sector."
