THE WORLD IS FLAT. It’s the deliberatively provocative title of a recent book by the New York Times’ International Correspondent, Thomas Friedman. He correctly argues that because of political, economic, technological and cultural changes, people in all professions and businesses can connect, cooperate and collaborate with almost anyone on earth. This potential fuels enormous changes in everything from business to politics, from environmental activism to higher education, from international economic development to journalism.

A “flat world” offers great career possibilities for women and men with a degree in International Studies. Anyone collaborating with, for example, colleagues in India, China, Russia and the United States needs knowledge of international cultures, norms and events. Equally important, over time she or he can use their foundation in International Studies to develop the special skills required to succeed in a world where more and more people must connect with individuals from different cultures and continents.

Career Opportunities definitely exist in the following fields: Business, Government, Education, Law, Environmental Organizations, Economic Development and Journalism. Below we list ten sites that prove only one point: Invest in a degree in International Studies and you invest in an education that can help you to profitably change the world.
