Students at SAIS have access to world-class faculty. They also have access to visiting experts.
At SAIS Europe, the Bologna Institute for Policy Research (BIPR), organizes the Seminar Series, which attract policy-makers, academicians and practitioners across the world.
Students have the opportunity to listen to the experts and, most importantly, to ask them questions.
Whatever one's interests, they can be sure there will be experts coming to SAIS to talk about the topics that whet their appetites. What's more, attending the talks gives students the opportunity to learn about and become interested in subjects they had not previously considered.
