GPP Cohort Begins Capstone Residency with a Trip to India

During the final module of the Global Policy Program, Johns Hopkins SAIS students work in teams to complete a project for an overseas client and travel abroad as a cohort for site visits, interviews and consultations. This November, students traveled to India to finalize research projects on issues such as US-India trade policy, democratic reforms, renewable energy, defense diplomacy, and information economies.  Five teams met collectively with representatives from over 35 organizations across sectors including many corporate CEOs and government officials including India’s Defense Minister.

Capstone residencies are essential components of the Global Policy Program. These intense, multi-day exercises take students outside the standard classroom and challenge them to apply lessons learned from their coursework.

Our first GPP cohort began their capstone residency by exploring 400 years of Indian history

The GPP is designed as an executive program, and all applicants must have a minimum of seven years of work experience after completion of an accredited undergraduate degree.
