Why I chose Fletcher:  The Fletcher School is a world-renowned cradle of distinguished diplomats, global politicians, and renowned alumni across all sectors. The Fletcher School alumni who are active and influential in the international political arena are what drew me to the school. I believe that an education from The Fletcher School will equip me with a more sophisticated knowledge and skill set to deal with the mounting challenges faced by China’s foreign affairs and the world politics at large.

On Fletcher’s international community: There is a robust and dynamic intellectual current under the surface of the suburban serenity of the Fletcher campus. I can easily engage in a vibrant conversation and debate with my fellow classmates on the latest happenings in the international community. Their sharp analyses and pertinent remarks reflect their close observation on the world and strong background in public affairs. The students are of high quality and their passion for making a difference in the world make The Fletcher School a perfect place for intellectual exploration and inspiration.
