The International Relations MA has been designed jointly between MGIMO and MIUC to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to critically analyse and interpret the key theoretical debates of post-modern political arena of international relations.

One of the strongest points of our programme is the discussion of International Relations approaches within a multicultural classroom environment, given the global background of our students. Indeed, some of these debates are currently reproduced in numerous international organisations and negotiations worldwide. MGIMO-MIUC trains the next generation of policy leaders to tackle the complex issues of a globalising world.
