Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University (SAIS) has been educating global leaders for more than 70 years. As a highly selective graduate institution with a distinguished faculty, SAIS consistently ranks as one of the top schools of international relations in the world. SAIS was founded to provide a practical approach to training students in international leadership and foreign relations, and to provide mid-career educational opportunities for those already working in related fields. Today, SAIS offers the MAIR, MAGR, MASCI, MAGP, MAIS, MASE, MIEF, MIPP, DIA and Ph.D. degrees and enrolls approximate 600 full-time students in Washington, D.C., primarily in the school's two-year Master of Arts program. Nearly 36 percent of the students are non-citizens coming from more than 40 countries. About 200 students attend SAIS Europe in Bologna, Italy, while about 180 students attend the Hopkins-Nanjing Center in Nanjing, China. To learn more about SAIS, visit .
