From executive director of a homeless shelter, to program director for an NGO fighting AIDS in Africa, to business manager of a local municipality, to chief of staff for a U.S. Senator, we are dedicated to helping each student find the career that fits him or her best and we pride ourselves on bringing academic theory into practice.
