Exploring What You Can Do with Your Friedman Degree

Friedman students and alumni are true change-makers across all sectors, both domestically and internationally. Our Career Directions reflect the diversity of these paths and are organized according to primary outcomes of interest, including agricultural sustainability, nutrition policy, human health, research and data analysis, international development, and innovative business. Within each community you’ll find examples of work in diverse roles (service delivery and management, research and data analysis, or communications and advocacy) and in diverse organizations (the public sector, comprised of Federal, state and local government or multinational agencies, private businesses of all sizes, and all kinds of nonprofit and philanthropic organizations).  In the many places they are found, Friedman students and alumni share an enthusiasm for and commitment to improving the health and well-being of people and environments world-wide, coupled with a focus on evidence-based interventions that support sustainable change. We encourage you to explore and follow along with any career direction that interests you.
