Experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsVery diverse crowd. People from all around the world. You will get to meet all kinds of people here. Most of them are focused on international affairs and politics given the location however you will also find other interest groups as well.

ConsSome of the from more wealthier families may be more cocky and not as opened to meeting new people. Also the upper level management is a mess. It needs to be more organized and actually have systems in place to do everything properly.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not just recruit students who can pay full tuition. Recruit the ones who are more open minded.
