Fourth of July

Our offices will be closed on Thursday, July 4th in celebration of Independence Day.  We will reopen on Friday, July 5th at 9:00am EDT.

join us for an online information session

SIPA is at it again… We’ll be online tomorrow, March 12th at 12Noon (New York time) — in the middle of our busiest week — to share with you why SIPA should be one of your educational destinations.  We will focus on the MIA and MPA two year programs.  If you haven’t registered for the information session, you can sign up online now.   You will need access to a computer with audio, internet connection and Adobe Flash Player to participate in the session.

If you rather visit us in person, you’re always welcomed to come by.  For our spring schedule, please visit our website.



you can’t come to us, so we’ll come to you… virtually

As I mentioned in an earlier post, one of the best parts of our job in Admissions is meeting new and interesting people who want to make a difference in the world.   People make the trip to visit us in New York  or find us on the road when we are touring the country and parts of the world in the fall.  But not everyone can come to New York and we, unfortunately, can’t travel to every city in the world, so let’s meet online.

We are hosting a virtual information session for our two-year full time Master of International Affairs and Master of Public Administration programs on Wednesday, September 26th at 10:00 AM EDT.  Unfortunately, you won’t be able to see us — since we won’t have video capability yet — but you’ll hear us talk about the program, what we look for in an application, and financial aid options.  Of course, we’ll also be available to answer your questions.  So register and join us next week for a one hour session from anywhere around the world.  See you online!
