Winter 2023 FP Guide: Leaders in Graduate Education in International Affairs

A graduate school experience is not defined solely by the degree program’s curriculum. Of great importance is the transfer of knowledge, lessons, and skills from experts and educators—such as professors, deans, directors, and alumni—to students. Meet the leaders who shape students’ experiences and are developing the next generation of global changemakers. Learn more.


Aspiring international affairs professionals rely on FP Graduate Education Guides (FP Guides) for information and insights about graduate program options. At the same time, schools of international affairs look to FP Guides to reach qualified prospective students whose aim is to develop their knowledge, skills and professional qualifications with the goal of meaningful contributions through their career and making a positive difference in their field. 

FP Guides offer timely supplements within the award-winning Foreign Policy magazine, the leading source for understanding and analysis about global affairs for 8-million-plus monthly readers. The FP Guides are in a unique position to link professionals interested in advancing their careers with specific and timely education opportunities.

FP Guides offer readers access to current program information and an inside look at leading programs. They meet global leaders, admission and career service directors, and faculty members and students who are making a difference through cutting-edge research, partnerships and fieldwork.
