MIDP is a scam. It has a horrible reputation even within Duke University and outside agencies. Career services and professional development is extremely poor. Unemployment rate after graduation is high. I graduated in May 14 2017 and just one person from my cohort got a paid internship ($8 per hour), which is not even a job. Many of the faculty members are arrogant and unhelpful. If you are thinking about obtaining a master in development I recommend you to check at Universities in DC, New York City, or Harvard University. I am aware that most of the students that attended other schools have better employment opportunities. Also, the MIDP program is very expensive and it is not even worth it.
