MSc International Strategy and Diplomacy


Course Description

About the executive MSc programme

This is a unique one-year executive programme designed to enhance the strategic vision of future leaders. It examines the changing global landscape created by the fundamental shifts that have occurred in international relations in the past 20 years. Lectures and seminars focus on strategic trends, the emergence of new strategic actors, and the international environment within which they operate, with particular attention to new security challenges and global flashpoints.

The programme is also focused on applicability and relevance, on how to manage risk and change. You will learn not only how to use strategy to deal with adversaries, but also to cooperate with others in solving common problems, be they military, diplomatic, political, or economic.

The programme is particularly suitable for professionals who are aiming to proceed to senior political or corporate-level positions. It will also be of interest to those wishing to deepen their conceptual grasp of contemporary international relations, with a view to address the complex challenges of the future.

The programme is taught via a combination of four intensive weeks, weekly evening sessions, and two policy weekends, allowing time-pressured professionals to combine work, life and studies.

Graduate destinations

The majority of graduates have continued to work in their previous posts, though very often at a higher level after having completed their studies. Others have changed direction entirely with some moving into government, international organisations, foreign policy consultancy, and full-time education.
