Programme Description
Our MA in International Relations will prepare you for an international diplomatic career. Throughout the programme, you will follow major global events and political and economic occurrences, which you will discuss and debate in classes. This programme is a logical next step for graduates of international relations, international studies and other social science programmes. A Master in International Relations is also an exciting opportunity if you are looking to change discipline and broaden your knowledge and skills.

You will gain a deeper understanding of the ongoing trends and conflicts and participate in regular visits to various institutions (ministries, international organisations) and workshops – honing soft skills like communication, problem-solving, cooperation and analysis, highly valued by employers.

The programme focuses on social sciences and international affairs, simultaneously developing your critical thinking skills. During your studies, you will examine US policies and the European Union’s outlook for the future in the wider context of world politics and the global economy. You will analyse complex international issues, understand and make predictions about the political and economic processes of international relations.

Acquire high-level competence in foreign languages, explore negotiating techniques and the rules of protocol and become a polished professional. The programme has a multidisciplinary scope with a strong emphasis on diplomacy, international legal and world economics dimensions, which will equip you to excel in your global career.

Corvinus’ MA in International Relations also offers a niche specialisation in Central Eastern Europe. Master the complex socio-eco-politics of our region and evolve into an influential decision-maker in Central Eastern Europe or apply your new insights anywhere in the world.
