Tell us about a meaningful relationship you had with a faculty member. I found in Professor Kim Wilson a mentor, advisor and a dear friend. She was always generous with her time and her insights. As a thesis adviser, she guided my learning process requesting only the best, in a kind and respectful matter. If you don't want to take the microfinance class, do not lose the opportunity to meet her in office hours.

How my experience at Fletcher has changed the way I look at the world: Returning to school is not an easy decision. Devoting two years of one’s life to a program is a lot professionally in terms of time and money.  The Fletcher school does everything to make this experience unique and rewarding. There are provocative classes and conferences which challenge your perceptions and refine your capacity to analyze. You will also participate in discussions with people working on real issues with varied experiences. Fletcher works avidly in helping students change the way we look at the world.
