Alongside Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) courses, Reuben is taking advantage of Georgetown’s Government department to pursue his interest in classical political philosophy.

"I chose MSFS in order to take advantage of the best academics in Washington, DC. The experience has paid off with wonderful faculty and peer friendships, and the opportunity to combine my interests in geopolitics, political philosophy, and business."
