Alumni and Friends

Nearly 3,000 alumni have graduated from the International Studies program since its inception in 1943. Alumni have prospered in sectors such as business, government, academic, and the nonprofit community, and have traveled to or reside in many different countries. Enormous breadth exists in the types of professions chosen by our former students.

Alumni have left Ohio State to become judges, business executives, nonprofit and NGO leaders, teachers, professors, pilots, and defense and security specialists, among many noteworthy professions, and we proudly claim the first Macedonian ambassador to the United States.
