Sackville-West, 2012, United States
Why I chose Fletcher: Coming from a background in
business and industry, I chose Fletcher because of the broad curriculum
and active student organizations that provide extensive opportunities
to explore today's most pressing issues both in theory and in practice.
For me, this translated into the ability to assess the mechanics of the
energy industry, to better understand the complexity of climate
challenges we face today, and to closely examine the political systems
and theories that help explain behavior of nations and institutions
seeking to reorient themselves in the face of present challenges.
How I first learned about Fletcher:
I first learned about Fletcher when I was working for The Boeing
Company in the International Relations department. My time in that
organization opened my eyes to two issues: in order to thrive, certain
industries must effectively engage in a global, complex and
multi-faceted business environment and that some of the most gifted and
effective professionals in this arena were Fletcher alumni. After
meeting with dozens of alumni across a variety of industries, I was
sold on the value of the school and, even more so, on the value of the
student and alumni network.

Muse, U2 or Ben Harper—depending on the day
Paris—besides being a spectacular city, it was where I got engaged!
