This seminar structures and directs students' efforts on a Policy Analysis Exercise (PAE) in the area of business and government. The students receive guidance from the seminar leader and a faculty advisor from their area of concentrated substantive policy development work. The objective of the seminar is to help students select their topics and advisors, to help students refine their research activities and approach to addressing a specific policy problem, and to create a supportive social infrastructure for students working on their PAE. Students will be matched with individual advisors (apart from the faculty leading this seminar) who are specialists in the area in which the student is doing the PAE and who are in the best position to give customized advice. The early part of the seminar is organized around topic/client selection, matching students with advisors, and research design. The latter part focuses on how to organize the materials gathered for the PAE. Students will give each other feedback and present their findings to the seminar.
Open to MPP2 students only. Taught jointly with ITF-150Y.
