Hear from MIAP student, Paul Montgomery, who is currently in Karnataka, India researching coffee! Also, checkout Paul’s highlight story on our student organization Instagram, @soia_osu

“After living through two years of a global pandemic, I feel incredibly fortunate to be working abroad. For the last couple of weeks, I have been in the southeastern state of Karnataka, India, conducting a study on coffee. India is one of the largest coffee-producing countries, and the majority of Indian coffee derives from this region. In my short time abroad, I have had the opportunity to meet with a few individuals involved within various points of coffee production, and I have never felt more welcomed or encouraged by my work. As a MIAP student, my studies were focused on sustainability, and as I learn more about coffee in India, sustainability will be a guiding topic of conversation. It is hard to capture everything I have experienced in my time thus far, but this experience has already been one of the most rewarding and influential seasons of my life. Without the support of my committee and the Humphreys Travel Grant, I would not be able to learn from these individuals and their unique culture. I look forward to seeing what adventures are in store for me as I wrap up my time here.” - Paul Montgomery

The School of Global Studies and Partnerships invites you to have coffee with the Ambassador from Azerbaijan. It will be held in WWC 201 at 9:30am Thursday (March 31). See the flyer below!

The Ambassador is here to further ties between Oklahoma and his country. Mr. Luke Coffey, Director of the Foreign Policy Center at the Heritage Foundation, will also be speaking.

Earlier this month, faculty and students within the Master of International Agriculture Program (MIAP) got together to socialize off campus!

It was a fun evening getting to meet other MIAP students and staff, and learn more about one another. Meeting outside of the classroom is the perfect way for students to make connections they wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to make.

Hear from one of our recent grads, Maddy McGarry, about her experience completing the MIAP degree completely online and finishing with a 4.0! Congratulations, Maddy;

"This month, I was officially conferred a Master of Science Degree in International Agriculture from Oklahoma State University after completing my studies in December 2021.

The MIAP program was administered online, which provided me the flexibility to complete the degree within 18 months while working full-time.

The curriculum was highly customizable and allowed me to explore a variety of disciplines, including marketing, entrepreneurship, research methodology, sustainability, food security, international trade, and business ethics. I also enjoyed having the opportunity to build off of academic projects and research I completed as an undergrad at Iowa State University. !

No one will tell you that the long hours and late nights spent in grad school were easy, but the work is nothing short of rewarding! I felt accomplished to finish the program with a 4.0, and I’m excited to carry this experience with me in the years ahead. !" - Maddy McGarry

Tomorrow at 1:30 p.m CST, a seminar will be co-hosted by MIAP and the University of the West Indies in Jamaica.

This seminar series aims at strengthening prospective partnerships between the two universities. Potentially, UWI will be a place where MIAP students could consider international experiences in the future.

Ralph Jean-Pierre, a Masters student in the Agricultural Economics department at OSU, will present his results from his Masters thesis. The link is in the flyer attached.

"A lot of the classes I've taken at MIAP have really shown to be useful in seeing and working with the farmers here who live in poverty but are utilizing agriculture to better themselves." - David Reynolds.

As international borders start to open up, we are incredibly excited to share student travel experiences again. Our first post-Covid pioneer overseas is David Reynolds!

David is working in South Africa, where he spent his first week with LIMA, which means "to cultivate" in many of the languages within South Africa, visiting smallholder farmers. LIMA provides support to farmers in extension-like services, loans for operating funds, and cultivating connections between farmers to markets and suppliers in their region.

During David's visits with LIMA to local farmers, they see how well each farmer's crop is doing and how loan money has been spent on improving a farmer's operations. Most of the loans are relatively small but make a massive difference for smallholder farmers who otherwise would not have access to credit from traditional commercial banks.

"I've been learning a lot about the agriculture in South Africa, as well as the financing side of things, and hope to be able to use my experience in agricultural lending to help them with their loan programs at the end of the trip. One of the most eye-opening things about the journey has been the incredible diversity of the agriculture here. We've visited areas where Maize (corn) and Sunflowers (to use the oil) are the predominant crops, and it honestly resembles our corn belt (Ohio, Illinois, Indiana) because of how rich the soil is and how much flat acreage there is to farm. We've also visited very drylands in the north where vegetable farming with irrigation is the primary crop, as well as fruit trees as far as the eye is seen." - David Reynolds.
