Program Description

About

Winston Churchill, the former prime minister of UK once said: “Diplomacy is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions.” As diplomats are dealing with major disputes in the world from trade disagreements to armed confrontations, it is crucial for them to be tactful when dealing in these matters. In negotiations, a diplomat is trying to get the best possible deal in the best possible way, making sure the interests of the home country are protected. Representing your country comes with great responsibilities and the Master’s Program in Diplomacy prepares you to have a leading role in the public or private sector where your knowledge of international relations, your skills in negotiations and your abilities of critical thinking will lead to great successes. Have you always dreamt of a career at the foreign service, an international organization or at a multinational company? The Master’s in Diplomacy is the stepping stone to let these dreams become reality.
