Exchange Programs

Moscow State Institute of International Relations

Through its partnership with the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO University), established in 2016, The Fletcher School is currently developing a wide-ranging exchange program for students between the two universities. In Spring 2018, The Fletcher School plans to send two students for the International Arctic Student Week and fifteen students for the Spring Break Study Trip to Russia to MGIMO University. Two students of MGIMO University also plan to visit The Fletcher School for the Fletcher Arctic Conference. The two universities are now working to develop semester-long student exchanges and joint master’s degree programs on U.S.-Russia relations and international law.


National Research University Higher School of Economics

The Institute for Business in a Global Context (IBGC) at The Fletcher School has a collaborative relationship with the National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE University) in Moscow, which developed its English-language MIB program on the IBGC’s model. Since 2012, HSE University has sent two to three students each year to The Fletcher School during the fall semester to study international business and management. HSE University maintains an open invitation to students of The Fletcher School to come to Russia and take courses in its MIB program. To inquire about the possibility of studying at HSE University, please contact Arik Burakovsky, Program Coordinator.


Tavitian Scholarship Program

The Office of Executive Education at The Fletcher School, in collaboration with the Tavitian Foundation, conducts the Tavitian Scholarship Program, a six-month training program for Armenian mid-career professionals. Since 1999, the program has brought fifteen young Armenian government officials and central bankers to The Fletcher School annually. The early focus of the program was on developing diplomatic skills to enable the young republic to forge relations with other nations. The focus of the program more recently has been on encouraging business development and helping Armenia achieve steady growth of real GDP per capita, including the development of the telecommunication, software, banking, and tourist industries. The program has also helped to bridge the development gap between the United States and the South Caucasus, bringing increased understanding and cooperation.
