Overview

The Jackson Institute’s graduate alumni population includes those who graduated from the Global Affairs degree program and its predecessor, the International Relations program.

Recent alumni have left Yale to take on positions in the public, private, non-profit, and intergovernmental sectors. In 2015, a sampling of job titles includes foreign service officer (U.S. Department of State), research analyst in the private sector, and fellow with the U.N. Parliament. See the full list here.

Our joint-degree graduates found success in fields that intersected their two areas of study, including a role in global supply management for Apple.

Alumni from earlier classes include the first female UK Ambassador to China, the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, the U.S. Treasury Representative to the EU, foreign government officials, senior private sector chiefs of investment, and researchers.

Alumni are an active part of the Jackson community, often returning to campus to mentor students and engage in career planning conversations.  Alumni also speak to students during our annual networking trips to Washington, D.C. and New York City.
