Associate Director, Office of Executive Education - The Fletcher School - (21001174)
The Fletcher School is the United States' first professional graduate school of international affairs. Since 1933 Fletcher's multi-disciplinary education in international relations, law, and business, has prepared the world's leaders to become innovative problem-solvers in government, private sector, and non-governmental organizations.
The primary aim of The Fletcher School is the same as it was when conceived by its founders in 1933: to offer a broad program of professional education in international relations to a select group of graduate students committed to maintaining the stability and prosperity of a complex, challenging and increasingly global society. Our mission remains (a) To educate professionals from around the world and to prepare them for positions of leadership and influence in the national and international arenas; (b) To increase understanding of international problems and concerns through teaching, research and publications; and (c) To serve local, national and international communities in their search to develop relationships of mutual benefit, security and justice in an increasingly interdependent world.
Since its founding, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy has prepared leaders to tackle the world's most pressing challenges. Our alumni serve in the highest levels of leadership in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. They are ambassadors and advisors, respected voices from distinguished media outlets, heads of global non-profit organizations, and leaders of some of the world's largest companies. Today we continue this tradition of training global leaders in diplomacy, law, business, and economics through our executive education programs, in which members of our distinguished faculty prepare international professionals to know and navigate the world.
The Fletcher School seeks to fulfill its mission in the most environmentally sensible way possible. We are also committed to increasing the diversity of our administrative staff. Members of under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
