DC/LA Immersion Experiences

Students who enroll in one of our immersion programs, the Master of Science in Public Policy and Management - DC Track or the Master of Entertainment Industry Management, spend their first year in Pittsburgh gaining core management skills before moving on to Washington, DC, or Los Angeles, CA, to apply these skills in full-time employment while taking coursework taught by professionals in the field. If you are in either DC or Los Angeles and have interest in hiring students from these programs, please contact our career services center at 412-268-2166 or cs77@andrew.cmu.edu.

The Heinz College Washington, DC Experience

Students in the Washington, DC, track of our two-year Master of Public Policy and Management program are required to complete an apprenticeship during their second year of study. The apprenticeship is more rigorous and advanced than an internship because it lasts for eight months, and students are required to work at least 30 hours per week.

Apprenticeships have taken place at federal agencies such as the U.S. State Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, Capitol Hill, USAID, Department of Education and GAO, nonprofit and NGOs such as the World Bank and the Urban Institute and private sector organizations such as Deloitte Consulting.

For information on the MSPPM-DC experience, please contact Marie Coleman at (202) 403-8604 or mcoleman@andrew.cmu.edu.
