"The flexibility of the program allowed me to explore the full contours of the field of education, while also ensuring that I delve deeper into my specific area of interest - higher education in India – through the guided research paper. It was this balance that made me appreciate and nurture my passion for higher education, while also breaking new ground and cross-pollinating new ideas."

"They showed me that the world I want to see can exist and does exist through multidisciplinary thinking and evidence-based decision making; yet always with more and more creativity and grit. I have come to recognize having your heart at right place in the field of education is extremely important but cognitive and visionary trainings is a necessity. Stanford’s MA IEPA program is best at that."

"Beyond the relationships I made, I was also able to take a diverse array of classes pertinent to my career goals. I am especially grateful that the program gave me the flexibility to take machine learning and business school classes, in addition to my education theory, practice, and research classes."
