In our programs, theory and practice merge: students encounter the most rigorous academic knowledge in the fields of political science, economics and international relations, but also gain exposure to the world’s top policymakers and business leaders.

Leveraging our strategic partnerships with multilateral agencies, governmental organizations and NGOs, we provide a pragmatic, hands-on learning experience. In addition to our programs’ core subjects, we offer modules aimed at developing our students’ decision-making skills and management capacity. Initiatives such as circular immersion weeks and trips to significant global destinations offer additional opportunities for our students to prepare for their roles as the impactful leaders of tomorrow. As sustainability is becoming an integral part of our programs, students may also take advantage the Foundation of Sustainability certificate.
