Program Overview

In today’s globalized world, a certificate in international affairs can be instrumental in opening doors to an array of career opportunities — from diplomacy and journalism to international business and conflict resolution.

By gaining a comprehensive understanding of global issues — such as international politics, economics, and law — you’ll develop multicultural competence, learn to navigate rapidly changing circumstances, and deepen your knowledge of the world and its complexities.

Through your learning journey, you will develop critical insights into the precursors, processes, and outcomes of international interactions between governments, organizations, and individuals.

Benefits

Participants will acquire analytical skills. These skills are necessary as they improve an international relations professional’s ability to solve problems, make informed decisions and process information. 

Creativity allows the analytical mind to come up with innovative solutions to complex problems. Creative international relations professionals can lead their teams to unorthodox strategies that can accomplish organizational goals.

Thorough data analysis skills are a requirement, as all acting parties, including international relations professionals themselves, will benefit from having access to comparative data that may be essential to making a well-informed diplomatic decision.

Critical thinking is used to evaluate information thoroughly and leverage the insight gained in order to make an informed decision. Decisions that will impact multiple nations should be made with as much consideration as possible, making critical thinking an invaluable component of an international relations professional’s analytical skill set.
