International Career: An Alumna’s Reflections

Posted on August 17th, 2016

Alumni Voices-3

We recently had a chance to talk with alumna Elise Montchanin who graduated from Schiller International University Paris Campus with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy. She gives us some of her reflections on her own international career.

SIU: Could you tell us a little bit about your current position?

EM: I am currently the Regional Security Adviser for IDLO, the International Development Law Organization (headquartered in Rome). I am in charge of the various countries in Africa where IDLO operates, mainly Somalia, Kenya, South Sudan, Mali with Tanzania and Liberia coming up soon. I have been working for IDLO since April 2014 ensuring the safety and security of staff implementing IDLO’s programs.

SIU: What have been some of your professional accomplishments since you graduated from Schiller International University?

EM: After Schiller I joined the French army, specifically the Gendarmerie, which had always been a dream. I spent 18 years in the army, I did missions for the Department of Peacekeeping Operation (DPKO) for 6 years and was deployed in Kosovo, Haiti and Chad. I also worked 3 years for the World Food Program (WFP) as a security officer training all WFP staff in Africa.

SIU: How did the Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Diplomacy at SIU prepare you for your career?

EM: After I graduated from Schiller I joined the French army as mentioned staying more than 18 years. I was quite an atypical member of the army since I was the only one in my units to have a university degree. Having this educational background enabled me to be selected as one of the first female Gendarmes to be deployed overseas for DPKO and work for the United Nations for about 9 years in various countries. A Bachelor of Arts degree, with work experience, or a Master’s degree is now considered one of the main requirements in order to apply for international security jobs. My BA in International Relations and Diplomacy and my English proficiency have always been assets both when I was in the army and in the world of international development: it has helped me succeed at the international level.

SIU: Thank you, Elise! It’s a real pleasure to talk with an alumna who has pursued a career in international settings and whose accomplishments inspire our students today.

Ambassador of Sweden to talk on Brexit

Posted on August 16th, 2016


Schiller Paris will be sending a delegation of students to a dinner-conference with S.E.Mme Veronika Wand-Danielsson, Ambassador of Sweden to France, who will be giving a talk on “Brexit and the European Union from the Swedish perspective”. The dinner takes place Tuesday, September 20 at the Restaurant of the Senate, Palais du Luxembourg, in Paris. Organized by IRCE, attendees at the dinner-conference will include members of the French Senate, business leaders, journalists and policy-makers from European institutions. For Schiller Paris’s contingent of Swedish students, this will be a memorable event! Students enrolled in the international relations and diplomacy program who attend will also have a front row seat to hear top diplomatic voices give their take on the most important political development in Europe in recent memory: the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union following the June 23 referendum

Having lived and studied in different countries, Ambassador Wand-Danielsson has a background many Schiller Paris students will find familiar. She thus brings a perspective enriched by many years working in an international setting. Initially schooled at the Institut Montaigne in Cotonou, Bénin, she completed her baccalauréat in Oslo before doing her undergraduate studies in political science at the University of Uppsala. She studied at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris and was later awarded a PhD in political science from the University of Stockholm. She began her career at the OECD focusing on topics related to public aid to southern African countries. Later, she held positions with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Sweden, the United Nations and the European Commission. She headed the Working Party on the Western Balkans Region (COWEB) during the Swedish presidency of the EU in 2001. She was the Swedish ambassador to NATO from 2007 to 2014 and since 2014 has been the Ambassador of Sweden to France and Monaco.

A New Chapter of Growth and Challenges for African Higher Education

Posted on June 15th, 2016

Throughout its forty-year existence, the Paris Campus of Schiller International University has developed a strong network of alumni and friends in sub-Saharan Africa. These multiple ties have long helped give us insights into the steady development and current trends in the higher education sectors of African countries. On recent trips to Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, South Africa and Zimbabwe, I met school administrators, students, parents and government officials each of whom have their own specific perspective on their countries’ universities and colleges. What I learned from these discussions were the differences in strengths and weaknesses; all of them, however, have to tackle three challenges facing their respective tertiary education sectors.

Student Success

"My four years spent at Schiller International University obtaining a bachelor's degree in International Business, taught me how to pursue my dreams while constantly challenging and preparing me to work and live in a multicultural environment. It opened my eyes to a world of travel and exposed me to a constant diversity of nationalities, building my character in and outside of the classroom. I am thankful for my invaluable experience at SIU and for all the amazing people I met from around the world"

"Studying at Schiller International University's Paris Campus is a smart way to increase one's cross-cultural literacy in the heart of Franco-phonic culture, while learning in a friendly, welcoming and supportive atmosphere. It is not only about what you learn from textbooks, but experiencing the splendour of starting on a new page by travelling and soaking oneself in a foreign culture, in the quest to gain a valuable understanding of the ever dynamic globalised world we live in."

~ Graeme Polson
MBA, International Business
2012 Graduate

"Rich. Diverse. Unique. These are just a few of the words that I would use to describe my time at Schiller. Nothing can be compared to the enriching experience of being in a classroom and exchanging ideas with people from all continents. The classes left a lasting impression on what cultural diversity means to me and I am exponentially thankful to Schiller for that opportunity."

~ Ashley Clarke
MA, International Relations and Diplomacy
2014 Graduate

"Studying at Schiller University gave me the opportunity to broaden my horizons educationally and culturally, not only with the excellent MA program and faculty, but as well as the interactions with so many wonderful classmates, whom I'm lucky to call friends today, and am still in touch with. For an International Relations program, you can't go wrong with Schiller University's Paris Campus."
