Why Fletcher: Fletcher as an institution has the right focus, curriculum and community to fit my personal and professional aspirations. I found many aspects of Fletcher reassuring, especially the school’s focus on the critical connection between business, politics, culture and economics. This interdisciplinary approach to international business brought me to the doors of Fletcher and the Master of International Business (MIB) program. The MIB program fits my need of a degree that broadens and deepens my horizons internationally. The curriculum’s focus on business and international affairs courses coupled with the opportunity to study my areas of interest in-depth through selecting Fields of Study is ideal for developing my skills as an international business professional with a global competence and outlook.

On the Professional Development Program: As an international student I found the career services office and the Professional Development Program (PDP) very helpful. Each country has its own sets of norms when it comes to recruiting, writing cover letters and structuring the perfect resume. The USA is no different. "PDP" helped me a lot by guiding me towards the correct path, and I frequently look at the folder full of information they provided to help me thorough this journey of recruiting.
