Whether you are a recent graduate or are simply looking for the next step in your career path, a job in an international organization is a smart choice. If you’ve focused on economics or finance, the world of international organizations is a particularly good fit – development banks, international research panels and trade organizations all offer highly respected positions for young professionals with qualifications in such disciplines. If you have a degree in other fields, for instance political science or mathematics, working for an international organization is also a great option.

In this post, we’re highlighting 30 of the top international organizations operating around the world, including both regional and global organizations. This list is organized alphabetically and acts as an introduction to the field. Many international organizations collaborate with both non-profits and governments in order to achieve their aims. For more information on opportunities specifically in those arenas, take a look at our recent posts onjobs for economists in the government and working in health and welfare and environment and sustainable development NGOs.
