MA-IR Dual Programme

Together with the University of Business and International Studies (UBIS) we created the new MA-IR programme. This is a Double Master’s Degree programme on International Relations with a Business Focus.  The programme will better arm graduates to face some of the world’s changing challenges and newer problems.  Deemed essential today is an ever-deepening alliance between international organisations, international diplomacy and international business. The joint MA-IR is therefore an increasingly sought-after foundation and platform to better understand, cope with and contribute more humanely and intelligently to the emerging challenges of the 21st century.

The programme is  internationally accredited by The International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE).
