Summerfest Pics!

We had a great time in New York City last week, and last night over 300 prospects braved the heat and humidity to join us for Summerfest, Part Deux, in Washington, DC.

SAIS alumna and Summerfest panelist Nancy Ngo, MA ‘12 (right), who is currently a Global Public Relations Professional for IBM Watson, answers a question during New York City Summerfest 2015.

SAIS alumnus and Summerfest panelist Robert Miller, MA ‘09 (second from right), who currently works for the Department of Defense, answers a question during DC Summerfest II 2015. (He must have said something funny, because the panelist on the end is laughing!)

We’re taking our show on the road this week!

That’s right, we’ll be doing our thing (Summerfest, that is) in New York City this week.

At Summerfest, the top IR grad schools come together so you can meet with Admissions reps and alums to learn more about these programs and how grad school can help you advance in your career.  The NYC Summerfest will beon Thursday, July 16, 6-8 pm ET.  For more info on Summerfest in NYC and to register, click here.
Also this week, we’ll be hosting an online information session about SAIS executive degree programs: the Master of International Public Policy (MIPP) and the Master of Arts in Global Policy Program (GPP).  The MIPP and GPP degrees are programs designed for seasoned, executive professionals who intend to take their careers to the next level.  The MIPP & GPP virtual information session will be held on Wednesday, July 15, at 12 pm ET. For more information, click here.
And a sneak peak into next week: APSIA will be hosting an online graduate fair of IR schools on Tuesday, July 21.  If you want to learn about a wide variety of schools in one place, this is worth checking out.  For more information, click here.
You can see all SAIS’s upcoming admissions events in one place on our Recruiting Calendar.

Graduate Fairs, Anyone?

The SAIS Admissions Office offers multiple ways to learn more about our degree programs, both in-person and online–and both are happening this week!  If you want to learn more about our degree programs and the application process, we encourage you to join us for one of the following:

If you live outside the DC-MD-VA area and can’t come to an in-person event, you should consider joining one of our online information sessions.  We will be joined by recent graduates of the SAIS MA program, and we’ll have a Q&A portion so you can ask specific questions.  We host one virtual session monthly, June through November.  July’s virtual session will be this Wednesday, July 8, at 12 pm ET.  For more information, click here.
If you live in the DC-MD-VA area and would prefer to attend an event in person, SAIS participates in a number of different graduate fairs throughout the summer and fall (and we do this in lots of places outside the DC-MD-VA region, too!).  This week, we’ll be at the PPIA Public Services Expo on July 9, 5-8 pm ET.  This event is free and open to the public.  For more information and to RSVP, click here.
Want to learn more, but can’t join us this week?  Check out our full recruiting calendar for other opportunities here.  We hope to see you at a recruiting event soon!
