Graduate Outcomes

The package of skills that students acquire in the Carroll IR program gives our graduates an advantage. In recent years they have been making an impact across the globe. For instance, Ahskinepowin Carter ('16) held prestigious scholarships from the Gates Foundation and the State Department and is now serving in the Peace Corps in Indonesia. Michael Yamoah ('13) runs international engineering projects for Bechtel and is also studying for a Ph.D. at University College London. Going a little further back, Matthew Eusson ('96) is now Political/Economic Section Chief a the U.S. embassy in Armenia, and credits much of success to his rigorous Carroll education.
