HEAR FROM OUR ALUMNI

Selam Petersson

SWEDEN

“Going behind the scenes of what it means to be a diplomat and learning from such experienced diplomats was invaluable. You won’t get that until after 20 or 30 years of being a diplomat. This training will give you details I don’t think you can gain anywhere else.”

Maksim Greinoman​

ESTONIA

“I wanted to learn something that’s not in the books, and for that you need experienced diplomats. The American approach is more down-to-earth than the European approach. It was interesting to see how they influence people in difficult circumstances.”

Liberty Potter

UNITED STATES

“I got exactly what I came here for. I’ve been given access to ambassadors to whom I would have not had access otherwise. The training has given me in-depth experiences, the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback and mentorship.”
