Logan Petkosek is a Master of Foreign Service (MSFS) candidate concentrating in Global Business, Finance and Society. Growing up, she moved around the world every 2 – 3 years with her military family but now calls Alexandria, Virginia home. She received her B.A. in Economics and Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia. While an undergraduate, she spent six months studying at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and wrote her thesis on the shift to the right in the Southern Cone. Prior to MSFS, Logan completed internships at United Way Worldwide and UVA’s International Studies Office. In 2020, she was awarded a Fulbright ETA position in Slovakia, which has been postponed due to public health conditions.
Logan currently works at the Common Mission Project, a non-profit organization that applies entrepreneurship to public sector challenges. She is very interested in the growing role of the private sector in international development and hopes to pursue a career in impact investing or sustainable finance. At Georgetown, she serves as treasurer of the Georgetown Anti-Poverty Society.
"I chose MSFS because of the opportunity to learn from faculty and peers who are similarly passionate about international affairs and global service. After just a few months at Georgetown, I’m certain that MSFS is the ideal place for me!"
