PRACTICAL PROFESSIONAL TRAINING IN DIPLOMACY

HEAR FROM OUR ALUMNI
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
I struggled to explain how American democracy deteriorated so quickly. There is a long road ahead in restoring our global leadership.
