The MIS provides alumni of renowned foreign universities with an opportunity to experience first-hand that unique Washington, DC, viewpoint, to examine with their American peers the forces shaping the world today and determine together what we can and should do about them.

Globalization of economic, political, social and cultural activity has created new opportunities and challenges for tomorrow's international leaders. Rarely have we lived in such an uncertain world, one in which the need for increased international understanding and cooperation is essential. Given its influence upon world events, Washington, DC, offers an unparalleled vantage point from which to study our globalized world.
