A unique feature of the MAAIS program is the Civic Council, a group of corporate, non-governmental, political and security sector leaders representing companies and organizations that are impacting and influencing today’s interconnected world. Civic Council members, including individuals from organizations such as Microsoft, Boeing, PATH and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, bring their expertise and diverse perspectives to the program, offering networking opportunities and helping MAAIS students understand the rapidly changing society in which we live and work. The program is intended for students with at least five years of experience in international affairs.
