A Globe-Spanning Career Leads Diane Alleva Cáceres to the Nunn School

Primary tabs

Diane Alleva Cáceres (Ph.D. International Affairs, Science and Technology, 2015) had a chance to start working on her doctorate straight out of college. Instead, she embarked on a career in international trade and investment, building connections all around the world before finally settling in Atlanta and choosing the Georgia Institute of Technology Sam Nunn School of International Affairs to pursue an advanced degree.

Now, Cáceres is a lecturer at the Nunn School, the CEO of Market Access International—an international trade and investment consulting firm, and the president of World Trade Center Atlanta. On top of that, the longtime elected member of the Council on Foreign Relations recently was awarded an International Affairs Fellowship in Canada by the organization.

Cáceres recently spoke to Ivan Allen College Communications about her experiences as she prepared for the fellowship, discussing how the Washington, D.C. native ended up in Atlanta and why the Nunn School was the perfect fit for her to earn a doctoral degree.

“When you’ve been out in the world working, one of the major lessons you learn is that just about every question and every challenge requires an interdisciplinary solution. That is where the Nunn School and Ivan Allen College excel,” she said.

The Nunn School is a unit of the Ivan Allen Collge of Liberal Arts.
