Site visits to locations like Washington DC's Embassy Row enhance the KGMI experience.
Site visits are a critical component of KGMI's teaching philosophy. They provide students with an opportunity to connect with real world practitioners at the top of their field.
Below is a representation of the sites students have visited during KGMI:
The World Bank
The World Bank is an international financial institution that provides leveraged loans to emerging markets for capital programs. The World Bank is comprised of two unique development institutions owned by 186 member countries: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA).
International Monetary Fund
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is an organization of 186 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.
