June 26, 2021


About the event

Multilateral organizations (MLOs) are formed by three or more nations to work on issues that are relevant to
each of them. Building a career in an MLO requires previous experience as well as specialized training in relevant fields such as public health, economics, business, or social and behavioural sciences.

This event provided those interested in a career in MLOs, with an understanding of how to approach their goal. Our expert panelists participated in this event by:

  • Sharing about their rich experience of holding senior positions at MLOs
  • Offering a holistic view of how to plan for a career in MLOs
  • Explaining how Kautilya’s MPP can aid in forging an effective career at an MLO
  • Enumerating Kautilya’s offerings in the stream of International Relations, and how key soft skills (multi-party negotiations, persuasion, diplomacy, advocacy, communications, etc.) will be taught by experts from Harvard and Stanford
  • Introducing Kautilya’s network of MLOs, and how we can offer MPP students internships & placements at multilateral organisations
