Are you trying to decide between an MBA, MA, or PhD for graduate school?  Are you confused about which program will help you break into your desired career sector/field over the other?  Not sure of the skills each degree will empower you with?  And how this knowledge and these skills will give you competitive advantage for specific career professions?  Confused about what degree leads to what path?  Do you already know your dream graduate school program but don’t know what steps you should take to best market and position you for acceptance?

YPFP Tools of the Trade Series is pleased to present a rich and interactive roundtable discussion that will address these questions.  Join us on September 4th at CSIS to learn from a distinguished panel of professionals and alumni from the nation’s top graduate schools for international relations.
