Nobel Laureate came from unique program

The Graduate Program for Economic Development at Vanderbilt University may be small, but that hasn’t slowed it down. The program, which Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus completed, has also produced two vice-presidents of countries; 10 governors of central banks; six ambassadors; and numerous ministers of finance, industry, and development. GPED began in 1956 with the goal of fostering economic growth in developing countries. It offers a few scholarships, but most students are financed by their home countries.
