The CDE is proud to count more than 1000 alumni representing 96 countries among its elite group of graduates from the Master of Arts in Development Economics Program. The program which has spanned 45 years is proud of the number of alumni who are still actively engaged in development work either in their home country, in another developing country, or for an international development agency.

The CDE is also proud to include among its alumni: prime ministers, ambassadors, governors of central banks, and numerous ministers, deputy ministers, permanent secretaries, and leaders of government agencies and financial institutions.

Want to keep connected to Williams College?


While CDE alumni come from around the world, the ties to the CDE are strong. We foster this attachment by encouraging communications with the CDE in updating personal information and by publishing information about our alumni. We also provide information on how to start a list server either by country or by class and we will help in this endeavor.
