For students who seek to gain on the ground experience in a dynamic emerging market. Understanding the power of culture and learning to build people-to-people partnerships are the future of international relations – whether that is in official governmental relations or business. Serving as an unofficial ambassador in Indonesia and then bringing the experience home at the community level will put Northeastern students at the vanguard of a new generation of citizen diplomats who will determine what America’s relations will be with the Muslim World and the broader developing world in the years to come.
