Policy Simulation Residency: Spring 2017

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.

During this month's three-day simulation, GPP students worked in teams representing major states to negotiate a resolution meant to address a crisis in a fictitious country plagued by famine and civil war. After 15 hours of countless meetings in both formal and informal sessions, an agreement was reached—at 12:30 am.

View more pictures of the simulation (and past simulations) here.


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.
