Exchange Programs

Moscow State Institute of International Relations

Through its partnership with the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO University), The Fletcher School is currently developing a wide-ranging exchange program for students between the two universities. In Spring 2018, The Fletcher School sent two students for the International Arctic Student Week and fifteen students for the Spring Break Study Trip to Russia to MGIMO University. One student of MGIMO University also visited The Fletcher School for the Fletcher Arctic Conference. The two universities are now working to develop semester-long student exchanges and a dual master’s degree program.


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 Fall 2012, HSE University has sent two to three students each year to The Fletcher School for a semester to study international business and management. In Fall 2018, one student of The Fletcher School is studying for a semester at HSE University. To inquire about the possibility of studying at HSE University, please contact Arik Burakovsky.


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.
