On the importance of context

Since arriving at Fletcher, I have come to realize the importance of 'context' across various specializations. I came to Fletcher with an idea of what issues in the world of business, finance, and international relations that I would like to navigate. Here you really are shown the ropes and you begin to unlearn and relearn everything you thought you knew. The Fletcher School is a highly-charged academic atmosphere with very dedicated students and faculty alike, who want to unpack, probe, question, analyze and push boundaries in their different fields.

On Fletcher's Curriculum

Coming from a learning system that followed a strict outline, Fletcher has opened me to a whole new world of learning. With a curriculum covering a wide range of divisions, there is flexibility to choose specializations, and also to mix and match and carve out an expertise in whatever field of interest you have. The opportunity to take courses at other graduate programs in partner schools such as Harvard and MIT is also much welcomed.
