65 Years | 65 Faces of IES Abroad

To celebrate our 65th Anniversary in 2015, we interviewed 65 notable IES Abroad alumni on how study abroad has impacted them both personally and professionally.

Limiting ourselves to 65 alumni was no easy task, and the list is in no way meant to be a "Top 65" list. By highlighting 65 alumni across generations, locations, professions, and industries, we hope to begin to show the impact of our 130,000+ alumni around the world and the role that study abroad has played in their journeys.

From ambassadors to CEOs, writers to entrepreneurs, and everything in-between, one common thread connects all of these stories - the power of international education to changes lives, careers, communities, and the world.
