Career Opportunities for IGS Students
The continuing growth in career opportunities for students with a strong awareness and understanding of international and global issues and peoples of other national cultures speaks clearly to the value of the IGS program at UNCG. For a perspective on the importance of "global awareness" for today's employers, we invite you to read a recent publication of the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), entitled: "How Should Colleges Assess and Improve Student Learning? Employers’ Views On The Accountability Challenge"
For information on possible future career paths, we recommend the "Sectors" page published on the website for the School for Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at the Johns Hopkins University.
Note: The jobs listed on the SAIS website are specifically targeted at Masters and Doctoral graduates of this program. It should be understood that admission into such advanced-degree programs sometimes includes specific course work not required by IGS. In the case of SAIS, for example, there is a requirement for at least one course in micro- and macro-economics. Other credentials, including prior work experience, should be outlined in application materials and/or provided by directors of graduate studies for each program.
