Robert Rogowsky

Program Chair and Professor in International Trade & Economic Diplomacy

The future truly isn’t what it used to be. One prediction is that 40 percent of the jobs today’s students will hold in 20 years don’t exist yet. Our role as educators is to prepare our graduates to thrive and lead in an incredibly challenging and dynamic world.

I am passionate about being a professor at MIIS. Innovative administrators, remarkable faculty, and invigorated students, all working as a team makes MIIS boil with inquisitive and creative energy.  It is a vibrant academic community that blends learning with meaningful application. I am thrilled to be part of it.
