Women and Men in Service for Others

The Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) provides a foundation that crosses critical disciplines of international relations, history, and economics, while offering preparation for professional careers in the nonprofit, public, and private sectors of international affairs.


MSFS opened a whole world of possibility for me. The opportunities I had during the program and as I graduated proved essential keys to my professional path. I have consistently drawn on what I learned and experienced in MSFS in ways that have been a great asset to my career and life.”
– Maria Eitel, MSFS ‘88, President & CEO of Nike Foundation



Women of MSFS: Practitioners in Residence Spotlight

In our final Women of MSFS spotlight for International Women’s Day, we highlight the work of two of our Practitioners in Residence, Kelly T. Clements, Deputy High Commissioner for UNHCR, and Elisa Massimino, former CEO for Human Rights First and Senior Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. We asked them about the people and ideas that have inspired and motivated them throughout their careers.
