Join this network of well-connected graduates
WHERE DO YOU GO?
Not only do alumni successfully jump start productive and fulfilling careers through TAM, they stay connected. We believe this global network of graduates is one of TAM’s greatest strengths. Use this page to browse specific profiles, read about the alumni advisory board, and see how well our graduates do in the workforce. If you are a prospective student, let us know and we will work to get you in touch with alumni who can provide some tips as you consider TAM.
TAM graduates work in a number of different professional fields. Their career paths are diverse and highly interesting. Some work for think tanks and NGOs such as the Bertelsmann Foundation, the Goethe Institute and the Brookings Institution. Others work for their federal government in foreign-service capacities as well as for entities such as the Pentagon, the US Department of Energy, the Labor Department, and USAID. Meanwhile, some TAM grads work for private firms such as lobbying shops, airlines or risk-management companies. Finally, another segment of our graduates go on for PhDs, JDs or Business credentials and / or work on university campuses as faculty members, instructors or administrators. Please read about some of our graduates below.

TAM ADVISORY BOARD
In early 2014, TAM established an External Advisory Board made up of program graduates. This Board had its first annual meetings on March 28 and 29, 2014, in Chapel Hill and has met every spring since. A fall meeting now takes place in October in DC. Board members serve as program ambassadors and stay informed of TAM developments. They assist with recruiting efforts, marketing strategies, internship and job placement, fundraising and community building. Two satellite TAM Boards in Berlin and London have also formed. TAM alumni involvement with the program makes us strong and proud. And the expertise of our graduates has been an invaluable source of inspiration and practical assistance.
Please feel free to contact the TAM Board with questions about the program and career paths afterwards: firstname.lastname@example.org
