Alumni and Careers

Alumni know exactly what it means to earn a degree at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS). You know the curriculum, caliber of faculty, and you understand how this background fits into your own chosen profession.

More importantly, you know that our students are bright, talented, and ambitious. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you and connect high-quality candidates with challenging and interesting internships and employment opportunities.
