Our Alumni

Students are equipped for a future working professionally as program analysts in international agencies, international businesses, and non-governmental organizations, or as development researchers, practitioners, and policymakers for issues facing developing countries. Many also pursue further study in international and development economics in a PhD program.

Networking Forum

Every spring, current students, alumni, and the Bay Area international development community come together for an evening of networking and socializing. The evening includes presentations of research projects by USF graduate students, as well as time to visit information tables and socialize.
