Global EMPA Student Jayson Browder Selected as Carnegie New Leader
Jayson Browder, a student in NYU Wagner’s Global Executive MPA program, has been named a prestigious Carnegie New Leader by the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs.
He joins a select group of future public service leaders in the international field who will develop their skills through seminars, formal events, online dialogue, and analysis opportunities. The fellows also will have access to a platform to promote ethics in the global issues in which they are involved.
For Browder, a highly accomplished military veteran, the Carnegie New Leaders fellowship complements the courses he's taking at NYU Wagner, “as well as the core values Wagner instills in all its students,” he explained. He is thrilled to join an esteemed community of business professionals, policy makers, social innovators, and scholars who are changing the way global ethics are approached in the 21st century.
Browder is currently an MPA candidate in the joint Global Executive MPA degree program of NYU Wagner and University College London. He is a multi-decorated U.S. Air Force and Iraq veteran and a U.S. Fulbright Scholar. While serving as a Fulbright Scholar, he was assigned as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador to Turkey with the goal of promoting cross-cultural awareness. Additionally, he served as an adjunct academic faculty member, providing research on the Syrian conflict, Turkish and Iranian relations, and U.S. foreign policy at Bayburt University.
He previously served as a legislative assistant for Military Affairs in the U.S. House of Representatives and as an adjunct junior fellow at the American Security Project. His analysis on national security and foreign policy issues has been published in numerous media and think tank organizations such as Asia Times, NPR, Foreign Policy Journal, the Partnership for a Secure America, and the Truman National Security Project. He holds a BA in Sociology and Latin American Studies from Fordham University.
