Admission to One-Year Master

One-year master’s programs at the United States Institute of Leadership and Diplomacy deliver an intensive curriculum designed for young professionals seeking to take their career to the next level.

Programs differ from Two-Years Master's programs by their duration (one year instead of two). They are intended for young professionals eager to develop the expertise they need to boost their careers. These programs are taught entirely in English.

Admission Process

Admission to our one-year Master's programmes is based on an assessment of the applicant's academic background and professional experience. When making its decision, the selection committee will also consider the applicant’s motivation, the coherence of his or her project, and the references provided.


Please note: The one-year Master’s programmes admission procedure is exclusive of any other procedure. Applicants must therefore choose whether to apply to a 2-year Master’s programme (regular Master's and/or dual degree) or to a one-year Master's programme.
