Ziad Zaghrout

Ph.D. Graduate

Ziad Zaghrout started the Evans School Ph.D. in Public Policy and Management program in 2006. His research interests include economic development and foreign aid.

Prior to starting his doctoral studies at the Evans School, Zaghrout was an instructor for two years at Birzeit University in Palestine where he taught financial statement analysis, international financial management, and financial management.

Zaghrout decided to pursue a Ph.D. to better understand the role of foreign aid in facilitating the peace process between Palestinians and Israelis, and the efficiency of Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs) in regard to providing a sustainable path toward political, economic, and social development. He hopes to apply this knowledge by returning to Palestine and teaching in a public university.
