2016 GSPIA Perspectives wins Gold MarCom Award

The 2016 GSPIA Perspectives, with cover stories on Promoting International Development, won a “Gold” MarCom Award for publications. The awards are administered by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals. Each issue of GSPIA Perspectives focuses on a certain program area, with this edition centering around the Master of International Development (MID), one of three, two-year master degree programs at GSPIA. 
The magazine features a letter from John T.S. Keeler — the school’s dean — as well as alumni/student stories, alumni awards, school news, a featured lecture series and more. Dean Keeler noted the training of specialists in international development has been a central component of GSPIA, since its founding in 1958. The MID program emphasizes the intellectual rigor and practical skills needed by organizations working in development, preparing students to make a difference locally, nationally and globally.

“It’s always a pleasure to work with GSPIA on its annual magazine,” said Arnie Begler, Principal of Strategic Integration at the Pipitone Group. “In particular, Harold Aughton, GSPIA’s Director of Communications, has done a tremendous job of working to grow the magazine each year, working collaboratively with both Pitt students and our staff here at Pipitone Group to assemble a great publication.”

The magazine was also recognized with an "Award of Honor" in 2010 and 2015 by the International Association of Business Communicators.
