The impact of globalisation has led to an increasingly connected world, where it is crucial to understand the problems and possibilities raised by the interaction of cultures and countries. Whether you’re a professional working in a global network, a student examining foreign affairs or just someone interested in world politics, this program of flexible international relations courses will help you explore issues at a global level.
You’ll get tastes of demography, geography, anthropology, international affairs and foreign policy as we look at risks and threats of today’s modern world. Asking the question what is international relations?, you’ll learn how organisations and culture can work collaboratively to overcome obstacles.
You’ll even evaluate the credibility of such threats, and learn how to make well-founded guesses about future events the world may face.
Two courses in the program are accredited by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). When you complete all three courses in the program and obtain a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will be eligible to join a final assessment course that leads to the award of 4 ECTS credits.
If you are taking the program courses for credit, 10 hours of study per week is expected for each course.
