I was very impressed by the small size of the program, which helps create a sense of community. Professors are available and dedicated to their students. MSFS is not an industry that produces hundreds of graduates, it is a small-scale operation that draws on the resource of the largest school of foreign service in the US to train a diverse, open-minded, and dynamic student body to serve in government, work for big firms, or enter the non-profit sector. MSFS students do not suffer from segregation by specialization. Whether you focus on international security or on investment banking, you will always interact with the whole student body.
