Life After HKS

Graduates of the MPP program are a versatile and accomplished group. They are purposeful and productive leaders of their communities, and make important contributions at every level of government in countries around the world. They lead change in the public, nonprofit, and private sectors — and many distinguish themselves in more than one of these sectors during the course of their careers.

More than 5,000 students have completed the MPP program and have created a valuable alumni network.

For more specific information about career choices of recent HKS alumni, see the Career Plans report.

Kim McClure
MPP 2003

"It was quite amazing to have the opportunity (as a student) to engage in in-depth cultural research that led to an acute policy analysis that may actually change lives! These skills will be invaluable to me as I go on to serve overseas as a diplomat for the U.S. Department of State’s Foreign Service."
