Six Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) fellows and a Duke Law student have gained new skills to help boost their international careers, after completing summer executive education courses at the Duke Center for International Development (DCID) in July.

Four MIDP fellows graduated from the Project Appraisal and Risk Management (PARM) course, an intensive four-week summer program that gives participants the knowledge and tools to assess financial, economic, and distributive impacts of planned investment programs and projects. Graduates included: Fandy Putra (Indonesia), David Herrera (Colombia), Woojae Jung (Korea) and Yoon Kyum Kim (Korea). The course was taught by Professor of the Practice Fernando Fernholz who directs the PARM program.

Two MIDP Fellows, Ruben Marihot Manurung (Indonesia) and Bendi Devi (Indonesia), and Duke Law student Oluwabamise Onabanjo (Nigeria) completed the four-week Tax Analysis and Revenue Forecasting (TARF) course. Directed by DCID Professor of the Practice Gangadhar P. Shukla, TARF covers the economic foundations of tax policy, revenue forecasting and statistical techniques to give participants the capacity to implement successful tax reforms.

Each year, Executive Education at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy offers professionals the opportunity to learn new skills and grow their knowledge in the realm of public policy. For more information, visit
