Hello! I have been recently accepted to two really good programs, the Master of Public Policy at the University of Michigan and the Master of International Business at the Fletcher School at Tufts. Tufts offered me a $40k scholarship (20/year) however my acceptance is on the condition I take a quantitative course at community college before August (the quant section of the GRE got the best of my anxiety even after studying for a year). UofM isn't offering any fellowships for me at the moment however I would qualify for in-state tuition. However, my greatest priorities are the curriculum and ability to pursue a career at an international organization post-grad, ideally somewhere like the UNHCR or the IRC. I find that the more compare these two schools/programs, the more confused I get because it feels like comparing apples to oranges. In your opinion, which degree/school/alumni network is more likely (I know it also depends a lot on luck, etc.) to help me stand out as a candidate or bolster my qualifications when pursuing a career as a program/policy manager at an international organization that (ideally) deals with issues of human rights/migration issues. I'm coming into either of these programs with internship experience in Michigan legislative offices, a NGO in Spain, the UNFPA, the State Department's virtual intern program, and two years at a full-time position as a technical analyst (global operations and processes) at an OEM (one of the "Big Three" auto companies). I'm fluent in Polish (native), highly proficient (C1) in Spanish, teaching myself French, and having friends help me with Arabic. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated! I plan on going to both open houses next month but if those don't help me make a decision, I don't know WHAT I'm going to do...
