 I’ve applied what I learned in BGA to all the internships I’ve done at Georgetown. For one, in my current internship at USAID, I work on global workers rights. I’ve written case studies and conducted research on workers rights issues, skills I learned from Global Organizations and Culture class we took sophomore spring and from the Washington, Business, and the World classes we take each Fall.
