The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) is committed to preparing students for success through world-class resources and a supportive community. With our virtual jumpstart event series, that commitment begins even before the first day of class.

These virtual events connect prospective and incoming students with Johns Hopkins SAIS faculty, alumni, and admissions staff. In addition to giving you the opportunity to meet with global risk leaders, these interactive virtual sessions let you learn about the MA in Global Risk (online) program from those who know it best.

The sessions take place on an established timetable, so early applicants have access to more opportunities. The sooner you apply, the sooner you’ll have the chance to secure your place among our community of global leaders. Start your application here.
