Update: DCID Executive Education Summer Open Enrollment Courses Postponed to Summer 2021

Our highest priority is the health and safety of our community and participants. Given the most recent developments of the COVID-19 situation, Duke University has decided to cancel summer activities at its campus. In line with this most recent update, DCID has decided to postpone its summer 2020 Open Enrollment Executive Education programming to the summer of 2021. We will reach out to participants of all our programs to discuss how participants can take advantage of our deferral or cancellation policies.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during this rapidly changing situation. If you or your sponsor have specific questions, please reach out to our team at dcidexed@duke.edu.

Each summer, DCID offers on-campus certificate training programs in areas such as public finance, budgeting, project appraisal and tax policy. Courses are designed for mid-level and senior professionals. Every course includes a mix of classroom instruction, field visits, and guest experts.
