Students Take a Meeting with U.S. Ambassador to Russia

This past month, 12 students studying with CIEE in St. Petersburg attended a lecture by Michael McFaul, a professor of Political Science at Stanford who is now serving as the U.S. Ambassador to the Russian Federation. What's more, he's a CIEE Alumnus!

In this video, he fields a few questions about the growing interest in Russia as a study abroad destination and the country's appeal to students interested in pursuing careers in everything from academia and government, to business and engineering.

After the lecture, Mr. McFaul spent some time speaking with the CIEE students in attendance  and posing for a few photos with them.
