    Graduate Education for Global Career Pathways
    October 25, 2013

    A recently released CGS publication is available online:


    Graduate Education for Global Career Pathways


    Global research and development networks, along with new technologies for communication and collaboration, make it essential for graduate students to develop global perspectives and skills. The Sixth Annual Strategic Leaders Global Summit on Graduate Education addressed this topic in the context of new patterns of mobility for graduate students and degree holders. This proceedings volume, a collection of essays by graduate leaders from 15 countries, offers new strategies for communicating the value of global careers across campus and examples of programs designed to equip graduate students with “global” skills.


    A complimentary printed copy of the publication will soon be sent to member institutions. Electronic access to the publication is provided at the Member Library (login required), where members can share free electronic copies with their administrators, staff and faculty. This publication is an excellent resource for graduate program directors, International Offices, and Directors of Professional Development programs for graduate students.
