MIP students are encouraged, indeed required, to begin formulating their post-graduation plans during the first semester of the program.  This early focus on job placement assists students with refining their career aspirations and allows them to thoughtfully broaden the scope of their job searches in a deliberate manner that can be informed by their classroom experiences and growing network.  Recent graduates have entered careers in a variety of government agencies and private organizations and received prominent post-graduation fellowships.  Additionally, the MIP prioritizes alumni relationships, working to connect our current students and alumni across the globe. This intentional partnership exposes current students to a multitude of opportunities and resources unique to our alumni.
