Held every other year in the fall, the Ohio State National Security Simulation is an two-day, real-time role-play and professional training experience. It bridges academic learning and the work world. Participants role-play alongside invited practitioners from government, journalism, and business to devise solutions in a fast-paced crisis environment. Participating in the Simulation is very much like your first two days in an exciting new job. Suit up in professional attire and go to work!
The Simulation takes place November 3rd and 4th on campus. Applications due September 27th.
Available roles include (but are not limited to):
- Intelligence analysts
- Policy advisors to U.S. Senators
- Policy advisors in Executive Branch agencies including the Departments of Defense and State
- Policy advisors to the Governor of Ohio and Mayor of Columbus
- C-suite corporate officers at the Simulation’s private sector entity, Nationwide Insurance
The Simulation allows students to network while also building their professional skills in multiple areas: working with busy senior leaders, role assumption, making their knowledge useful to people in other fields, prioritization, decision-making, crisis management, use of processes to generate policy and decisions, and written and oral communication.
Who is Eligible: All OSU students with a serious interest in national security, public policy and governance, crisis management, and related issues.
Application Deadline: Wednesday, September 27, at 8:00 PM
