Four Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) students earned certificates in Project Appraisal and Risk Management (PARM) in June, a summer Executive Education program hosted by the Duke Center for International Development (DCID).
Mohammad Mansoor Akbar, Mohammad Aman Farahi, Guntsengel Nyamkhuu, and Paola Molina Rojas completed the intensive, four-week program that provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to assess the financial, economic, and distributive impacts of planned investment programs and projects.
Eddy Malesky, director of DCID, and Fernando Fernholz, director of the PARM program, taught the course.
Each summer, DCID offers certificate programs on a variety of topics designed to meet the needs of mid-career and senior-level public policy professionals. In addition to PARM, participants can earn certifications in Behavioral Economics, Monitoring and Evaluation of Development Programs (M&EDP), Tax Policy and Revenue Estimation (TPRE), and Tax Analysis and Revenue Forecasting (TARF). Each course is taught by expert faculty and includes lectures, field visits, and practice time.
