"The Arizona MDP helped set me up to succeed by providing the technical skills needed to design, implement, and analyze development projects. However, while my daily work certainly utilizes these skills, I feel that the most valuable component of the program is that it combines a historical context of development and a problem-solving mentality – students learn why pervasive issues such as poverty, inequality, and poor health exist, and then are provided the tools to go and do something about it."
