We thought it was time to catch up with one of our BAIS alumni. This week we caught up with Morten Tastum (BAIS ´14), who is currently a program coordinator and visiting fellow at the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
Since graduating from USF with a Bachelor in International Studies, I have completed a Master’s of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) with a focus on Global Politics and Security from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
A few months after graduating, I accepted a position as the program coordinator and visiting fellow for a completely new think tank under Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) called Nordic Ways. Nordic Ways is focused on bringing forth Nordic ideas and approaches to a wide array of issues covering business, industry, politics, and much more with a focus on practical application. I will assist in setting up the project for a future Nordic Program at SAIS, as well as coordinate between the Nordic country entities and the relevant US Congress caucuses.
