Master of Arts in Higher Education, '10

Jonathan  Post, School of Education

Field of Study: MA in Higher Education

Year in Program: c/o 2010

Undergraduate: Johns Hopkins

 

Prior to UM: I received my undergraduate degree in international relations from Johns Hopkins University and went on to work for a consulting firm and American University (AU) before pursuing the master of arts degree at U-M. At AU, I served as an academic advisor and transitioned into coordinating the international programs for the business school. I was fortunate to travel the world to set up exchange programs and develop short-term international experiences for undergraduate and graduate students.

Why your program? The master’s program was a great experience for me. I designed my internship at the Ross School of Business and served as a research assistant in the Center for International Business Education.

The best part of SOE so far: The internship and my international background enhanced my classroom experience and provided me a unique lens through which to see the issues of student development, budgeting, and strategic planning. My interests changed during the course of the program and I am now more focused on leadership and organizational development.

After graduation: After the program, I moved back to Washington, DC, where I interned with the Association of Governing Boards of Colleges and Universities (AGB). At AGB, I researched two-year governing and coordinating boards from around the country and assisted in the development of a new online research portal for trustees and presidents to utilize. At the conclusion of the internship, I was offered a consulting contract to further develop the online resource.

Teach me something! If you have any questions about my experience during or after the program, please contact me by email at jpost@umich.edu. I look forward to hearing from you and Go Blue!
