Sol Iglesias, 2013, Philippines

Why I chose Fletcher:  Having worked in diplomatic circles and international relations studies, I met several people from various countries and disciplines who have one thing in common – the Fletcher School. That's what first piqued my interest. I discovered the Fletcher School’s one-year MA program for mid-career professionals, and thought that it would be a perfect segue from almost a decade in my profession to doctoral studies.
