Welcome to the information page of International Relations department of ESPAM - formation university, here you'll get the neccessary information needed about the department.


The Bachelor of Science in International Relations and Diplomacy programme offers a unique blend of academic education in international relations and political science with practical graduate education and training in the areas of international negotiation and diplomacy. In the current era of global interdependence, collaborative efforts are needed to meet the most pressing challenges in international politics, security and economics. Increased transnational channels of communication, global trade and capital flows characterise an increasingly interconnected world of both nation-states and non state actors. Resulting challenges concerning global governance can be met most effectively by patterns of international and transnational cooperation and diplomacy.
Our programme prepares students for careers specifically in international diplomacy, international governmental and non-governmental organisations, national and international interest associations or international business.
