“Since its inception in 1988, IFSA has maintained the highest of academic standards and in recent years developed more intentional opportunities for students to engage at a local level to nurture and develop intercultural agility and communication. I am proud of the work we do and feel fortunate to be part of our students’ journey.”
Education
Ruth earned a bachelor’s degree in humanities at University College Cork in Ireland, and a master’s degree in business management and marketing after settling in Edinburgh.
