The Harvard Kennedy School’s newest degree program, the *MPA in
International Development (MPA/ID)*
<http://www.hks.harvard.edu/degrees/masters/mpa-id>, is designed to prepare
the next generation of leaders in international development. It is an
economics-centered, multi-disciplinary program, combining rigorous training
in analytical and quantitative methods with an emphasis on policy and
practice.

The MPA/ID Program is chaired by Professor *Lant Pritchett*
<http://www.hks.harvard.edu/about/faculty-staff-directory/lant-pritchett/(page)/faculty>.
The
intellectual home of the MPA/ID students is Harvard's university-wide
research center, the *Center for International Development (CID)*
<http://www.cid.harvard.edu/> based at the Kennedy School and directed by
Professor *Ricardo Hausmann*
<http://www.hks.harvard.edu/about/faculty-staff-directory/ricardo-hausmann/(page)/faculty>

The MPA/ID Program offers unparalleled training for a professional career
in development. The mix of theoretical rigor with a practical approach has
proven to be a winning combination in the professional world. Our graduates
hold influential policy and management positions in a wide range of
international organizations, national governments, central and regional
banks, non-profit and research organizations, and private sector companies.

Our young alumni body includes the Minister of Planning of Ecuador, several
deputy ministers, 27 World Bank Young Professionals, a White House Fellow,
a member of the Irish Parliament, and several social entrepreneurs who have
received Echoing Green Fellowships, to mention just a few.
