Webster Vienna Students’ International Relations Work Featured

| March 29, 2013

Two students in international relations at Webster University Vienna recently earned accolades for their academic work:

An article by graduate student Assel Serikbayeva was featured in the January 2013 issue of the OPEC Bulletin [pp. 40-47, PDF]. In the article, titled “Kazakhstan — the Caspian’s jewel in the crown,” Serikbayeva explores the history, growth and achievements of Kazakhstan and its role as an important oil and gas producer. The project was part of an internship with the Public Relations and Information Department (PRID), offered exclusively to Webster University graduate students in International Relations through an ongoing special partnership with OPEC.

Separately, undergraduate student Sabine Weiß won an essay competition titled “Artic Security – Challenges in a Sensitive Environment.” The competition, sponsored by the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, the Embassy of Canada to Austria, and the Austrian Institute for European and Security Policy, asked participants to analyze and develop their own ideas about security in the Arctic.

Students enroll in Webster’s international relations program at the undergraduate and graduate levels at Webster campuses in Europe, Thailand and the home campus in St. Louis — where partnerships with local international organizations at each campus expand opportunities for students. The graduate degree is also offered online and at multiple U.S. campus locations.
