The Jackson School’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 2022, a sampling of job titles included Associate Expert with the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee; Presidential Management Fellow in the Office of Policy at the Department of Energy; Information Officer at USAID’s Bureau of Humanitarian Affairs; Senior Policy Associate with Innovations for Poverty Action; Foreign Service Officer with the US State Department, and Fellow at NATO in Brussels. Others have gone into threat analysis with Microsoft, Google, and Graphika.

Our joint-degree graduates found success in fields that intersected their two areas of study, including roles with Google’s Jigsaw, Ayala Corporation in the Philippines and the Chartis Group.

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.
