I currently have an undergraduate finance degree and work as an analyst at a ratings agency which is great. However, I have always wanted to work with government or politics in some capacity because I find the industry fascinating. To me, that could mean working for something like the MSRB or SEC, doing campaign finance, budgeting for an agency, or maybe trying to become a congressman one day. Are there graduate schools that are known for being good for things like this? For example, maybe some schools have active recruiting from government agencies?
So far, I was starting to look at the upper echelon DC universities (John Hopkins & Georgetown), as well as the typical Ivy schools like Princeton. Are there other unexpected schools I should look at?
