This week has really been packed with special events, and today and tomorrow there are two of the week’s highlights.
Today: Many students with an interest in private sector or finance careers are currently in New York on a career trip sponsored by the International Business Club. Sites to be visited include the Federal Reserve of New York, Global Impact Investing Network, Control Risks, Eurasia Group, Falconhead Capital, Google, Oliver Wyman, Citi, Blackstone Group, Major League Soccer, Morgan Stanley, Monitor Deloitte, Scholastic, and others! Some, but not all, of the meetings will be hosted by Fletcher grads.
Later today and tomorrow: In another curricular area, Fletcher will be running Simulex, the annual international security exercise that this year will simulate a crisis in the Baltic region. The ISSP organizers tell us:
In the past, there have been as many as 200 students and visitors in attendance. Several of the Military War Colleges, The National Defense University, Military Service Academies and universities from around the country are represented. Students are assigned to country teams that make policy decisions for their respective states and experience how these decisions influence future events.
These are those just a few of those opportunities Diane mentioned in her post earlier this week.
