United Nations (UN)
The UN is the most prominent international organization under which other international organizations operate. Together, these intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) provide thousands of opportunities to IA majors along with other nationals.
Among the most famous IGOs are UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations), International Civil Aviation Organization, International Labor Organization, International Monetary Fund, World Health Organization, World Tourism Organization, and many others.
International Government Organizations (IGO’s)
In addition to organizations under the UN, there are other international government organizations that operate according to various international treaties to which the United States is a signatory. Although IGOs are fascinating places to work, it is rather difficult to find a starting position in them.
Nevertheless, IA graduates are well-equipped to find internship opportunities in these organizations. In fact, finding internship opportunities are extremely useful for all IA students who aspire to move up to senior positions in various sectors.
