Why I Chose MAGES: I wanted to expand my research interest in the field of European studies and transatlantic relations. The MAGES program allows me to receive a switch in perspective, by studying in the USA with largely US-American classmates and Professors looking at Europe. Additionally the MAGES program allows me to focus on the intersection of public and private sector interests through the IBD program.
Intended Academic Focus: Transatlantic relations; Intersection of public and private sector interests
