The Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University is excited to welcome its newest MA candidates, who gathered for their graduate student career advance on September 8, 2019. The incoming MA students join the ranks of the Pardee School graduate program from diverse and exciting backgrounds and walks of life.
The graduate student advance was held District Hall in Boston’s Seaport district, and included a day full of team building and professional development activities focused on maximizing career opportunities and resources for graduate students at the Pardee School.
The advance included remarks from Director of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies Amb. Robert Loftis as well as networking and team building exercises with Questrom School of Business Senior Lecturer of Organizational Behavior Paul Hutchinson.
At the advance, graduate students also heard from Boston University Center for Career Development Executive Director Lou Gaglini and Recruiting Manager Heather Reghitto.
Pardee School Assistant Dean of Development and Alumni Relations delivered a presentation detailing how current students can engage with the network of more than 9,000 alumni from programs currently under the purview of the Pardee School.
On September 6, 2019, Pardee School graduate students attended an orientation which provided them an opportunity to hear from members of the school’s Student Services team as well as current students.
Pardee School graduate students were officially welcomed back to campus earlier in the week at the school’s annual Welcome Back, Pardee! celebration. The event provided Pardee School students and faculty with similar academic interests the opportunity to get to know one another in an informal setting while enjoying food from around the world.
