Welcome to the FP Education Guides
The Summer 2020 FP Guide: Funding Your Graduate Education in International Affairs explains how schools offer a mix of financial assistance—including tuition support and stipends—to make their degrees affordable, at a time when graduate school may be a wise option to position yourself for a stronger job market in the future.
FP EDUCATION GUIDES
Aspiring international affairs professionals rely on FP Guides for information and insights about their graduate program options. At the same time, schools of international affairs look to the Guides to reach prospective students who aim to develop their professional qualifications while also working to help make the world a better place.
FP Guides offer timely supplements within the award-winning Foreign Policy magazine, the leading source for understanding and analysis about global affairs for 4-million-plus monthly readers. The Guides are in a unique position to link professionals interested in advancing their career with timely education opportunities.
FP Guides’ readers gain access to current program information and an inside look at leading programs. They meet:
Global leaders, such as Gen. (Ret.) Michael Hayden, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency and founder of the Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy, and International Security at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government; and Joel Hellman, who previously served as chief institutional economist at the World Bank and now is dean of Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service.
Career services directors, such as Jean-Amiel Jourdan, director of global careers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies.
Admissions directors, who share advice to help applicants strengthen their applications.
Faculty members and students who are making a difference through cutting-edge research, partnerships, and fieldwork. One innovative professor is Gordon McCord of UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy, who designed a new graduate course focusing on geographic information systems (GIS). McCord and his students have used GIS to map out the locations where people were killed in conflict in Northern Ireland, and to track economic activity in North Korea.
A standout student is Majd Baniodeh, who earned an MA in Applied International Studies from the University of Washington’s Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies in 2016, and now leads implementation in the United States of Starbucks’s effort to hire 10,000 refugees globally.
