On the flexibility of the curriculum: Fletcher is ideal if you are interested in
approaching issues and policy problems from a variety of different perspectives.
The curriculum approach is far from the cookie-cutter list of core courses you
might find in other international affairs or business programs. While courses
are grouped within an overarching theme or concentration, there is considerable
flexibility in the final make-up. If you are interested in banking and finance,
for example, you'll get the chance to combine courses in corporate finance
theory with courses in the political economy of Latin America or Chinese
economic history. Likewise, energy buffs will get a chance to debate current
issues as well as develop skills in project evaluation and cost benefit
analysis, skills which are crucial if you want to be at the forefront of
advancing credible policy alternatives.
