Established in the summer of 2008, Heinz College Washington DC is an education, public service and research center aimed at building connections between Carnegie Mellon University and national and international policy makers.

Our growing set of activities includes: developing relationships with prospective employers, providing a home base for the Heinz community in Washington, recruiting DC-based faculty and speakers and planning events that bring together our expanding and diverse network of students, faculty, alumni and friends.

Our most significant and successful endeavor to date is the establishment of the Master of Science in Public Policy and Management in DC (MS-DC) degree; a highly selective program combining CMU's top 10 public policy master’s degree with work experience and the opportunity to build networks in the nation’s capital.

This program is geared to top students who want to advance their careers in public and political service. Please explore this site to learn more.
