We are fortunate to have some of the most committed and respected people in international education and scholarship management as part of our worldwide team. We strive to create the best work environment possible to support ongoing employee development and growth.
Working at IIE is not just a job; it’s a place to build a rewarding career.
Our global IIE Community is made up of so many wonderful people who all work together to deliver on our mission. Having a network of supportive colleagues also makes our jobs easier and our workday all the more fulfilling! IIE’s offices all over the world follow a hybrid work environment that allows team members the flexibility of in-office work and telework at any of its locations. Our collaborative workspaces allow for intentional gathering to meet our mission and connect with one another. Take a virtual tour of our NYC offices in the video below.
IIE PATH is a competency model designed to create a common language for performance and what it takes to be successful at IIE. The competencies are visited throughout all stages of one’s career at IIE beginning with the interview process. The competencies pinpoint the behaviors and attitudes needed to help one enhance their own capabilities and ongoing success at the Institute.

IIE’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA), now and throughout our history, is a critical part of our effort to engage thoughtfully with all of our internal and external constituents around the world and reaffirms our deep commitment to these principles. We believe that racism and inequality are and have been inherently contradictory to our mission. And while IIE has worked for over a century to build a more peaceful, equitable world, we recognize that there is much work yet to do. We support programs with a universal commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, multiculturalism, and international understanding and cooperation.
IIE’s DEIA Initiative is focused on action and accountability with defined goals, culture, and competency awareness by embedding DEIA into our culture. We provide education and engagement opportunities through custom learning and development initiatives to bolster knowledge, sharing, and expectations for our team members and stakeholders.
We are invested in hearing and valuing all voices worldwide across the organization. The DEIA Initiative is action-oriented, developed and led by team members throughout IIE, and championed by leadership. DEI affinity groups have been established to provide a platform for colleagues with similar identities, interests, and goals to connect with each other and foster professional and personal development. With these groups, we hope to provide team members with an opportunity to strengthen their networks, access resources for personal/professional growth, and provide IIE with feedback to help drive positive change within the organization.
DEIA affinity groups currently available:
- Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage
- Black Heritage
- Hispanic/Latinx Heritage
- Mental Health and Well-Being
