JetBlue Information Session - 10/11/17
The Information Session was engaging and informative. Hearing about the incredible work JetBlue does in the aviation industry, and in giving back to all people and communities made me want to apply right away.

the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) hosted a simulation event for student - 9/28/17
Participants played the role of a CIA intelligence analyst assigned to a team. During the simulation, CIA officers walked students through the thought process and role of an analyst as they investigated a potential emerging problem demanding critical thinking skills and analysis.
I thought the CIA simulation was really interesting and fun. Like most people, I had a warped view of what CIA analysts did. Attending the simulation gave me a better idea about the role of an analyst, as well as the skill set I would need to build to work as one.
-VIVIAN FU, MS INDUSTRIAL/ORGANIZATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY, '19
It was incredibly engaging to walk in the shoes of a CIA analyst for a moment and capture a glimpse of what it means to be a global scholar in a collaborative work environment.

Careers in the Arts panel - 4/21/17
The WSAS Graduate Career Services Office hosted a featuring Michael Barra, President, Media & Entertainment at The Araca Group; Dr. Robert Bucker, Interim Vice Provost and Dean of Faculty, Manhattan School of Music; Gina Gibney, Executive Artistic Director, Gibney Dance Company; Geri Thomas, President, Thomas & Associates, Inc. ArtStaffing.com; moderated by Mark Rossier, Director of Institutional Advancement, New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA).
One of the reasons I chose the Baruch MA, Arts Administration program was the access and proximity to NYC Arts organizations and their leadership. Attending this panel realized this aspiration perfectly. That the moderator and guests were knowledgeable and well-spoken came as no surprise, nor did the diverse circumstances of their individual journeys.
