Secure a Job at an International Organization
To get a Master's degree or not to get a Master's degree, that is the question. If you've thought about higher education you've probably asked yourself:
✅ Is a Master's Degree worth it?
✅ Will it help me get the job I want?
✅ Will it help me make more money?
✅ Can I afford it?
✅ What are my options?
And many other practical and thoughtful questions. In this session, Menan Omar will talk about her personal experience from her undergraduate education at AUC in Egypt to studying public administration at Columbia University. She'll share information about how and why she got into economic research and how getting her Master's Degree empowered and advanced her for her role at the International Finance Corporation. She'll talk about her journey, her experience and her path to success.
