Flying cars. Super viruses. The Internet of Things. Cold Fusion. New innovations emerge constantly. They know no borders; and, they bring new challenges and new opportunities.
How will these shifts transform the landscape in which we live and work? How will future leaders adapt? What context does history provide for the changes underway?
International affairs and public policy professionals are distinguished by their flexibility and adaptability. Even if they cannot predict the future, their interdisciplinary training provides tools to navigate and understand transformation.
The leading schools of these disciplines blend broad preparation in critical thinking, analysis, communications, management, and teamwork with deep regional, cultural, economic, and policy expertise. Students learn to collaborate with different kinds of people, just as they must in the workplace.
As you evaluate graduate schools, consider how you can build a solid foundation on the past, prepare for the present, and be ready to adjust to the future. What areas are new in their curriculum? On what challenges and opportunities do their faculty focus? How do they foster an atmosphere where learning and transformation can occur?
International affairs and public policy graduates master underlying principles of an ever-changing world, even as they explore drivers of future change. Join us.
