The people of Fletcher: “I was attracted to Fletcher first and foremost because of the people. I asked myself who I would most want to surround myself and work with as I launched a career in international development, and I thought: here they are. You would be hard pressed to find a more driven, diverse and contagiously enthusiastic group in the world. My Fletcher friends are among my closest. I count on them and the broader alumni network for offering personal and career advice, bouncing around business ideas, suggesting itineraries for travel to basically anywhere. We conclude most of our conversations with some mention of how awesome Fletcher is.”

 

Looking back on the intellectual diversity: “One thing that struck me about Fletcher was that many members of the faculty offer a distinct view of international affairs. In terms of political and economic philosophies alone, it is incredible just how many unique voices are represented across the faculty. The implication of this diversity is that students are challenged on their assumptions from what seems like every possible angle. I can't imagine a better way to prepare future leaders than to put them in this kind of environment. Some schools push students to think in a particular way as a means to build a school of thought or body of knowledge. Fletcher prepares leaders by exposing them to many schools of thought and pushing them to think for themselves.”
