This week, we would like to highlight our recent YouTube video campaign: The Korbel Perspective. Featured in these short films are five of our first year MA students hailing from Virginia, Colorado, Alabama, Delaware and California. Take Porscha for example, who is pursuing our Global Finance, Trade and Economic Integration degree through the Peace Corps Master’s International Program. She choose this program to gather practical skill sets and has loaded her plate with four classes a quarter and a part-time job in an effort to maximize her time here. Or Fred Oelsner, our Colorado native who is enrolled in our International Development program. Fred takes three classes because four classes seems pretty “intense” in addition to his part-time job. Post graduation, Fred hopes to work with a smaller NGO, focused on environmental policy issues.
How many hours of reading should you expect per week?
Why did you choose the Josef Korbel School?
