AGS Mission Statement
The American Graduate School in Paris (AGS) is a not-for-profit institution which acts for the advancement of higher education and research in the fields of international relations, diplomacy, business and economics.
AGS seeks to promote the complementarities between those sets of disciplines, by providing future actors of international business with a good understanding of the cultural, social and political context of the countries with which they will interact, as well as providing future diplomats and practitioners of international relations with a good knowledge of the business component of the international arena.
AGS is committed to maintaining the highest standards of academic excellence. This applies to the selection of faculty and students as well as to the entire educational process.
As an American institution located in Paris, AGS is dedicated to participating in Transatlantic exchanges and links the domain of education.
At the heart of its mission, AGS values cultural diversity. By drawing its faculty and students from different countries, AGS gives a multi-cultural perspective to the disciplines taught and fosters mutual understanding of different cultures.

My AGS experience was infinitely rewarding, from the classes to the faculty, to the student community. My time in Paris gave me many opportunities to connect and interact with people in the vibrant international community around Paris, from UNESCO to Human Rights Watch, to the countless other organisations that call Paris home.
