Purujith Gautam from India | Global Security (Class 2020)
I chose the Graduate Institute for its international reputation, diverse student body, esteemed faculty and fantastic job prospects. So far the Institute has lived up to all my expectations and has been a truly wonderful place to learn and grow. The program has been truly unique in its demand for students to think both practically and theoretically. A class session might involve discussion of texts, or a debate about policy implementation and effectiveness.
The institute also has an impressive lineup of speakers and conferences that take place almost every evening. It gives students a chance to hear from, and connect with real practitioners in various contemporary fields.
I look forward to completing my journey at IHEID and then continuing to stay in touch with the global network of alumni!
