Programme profile

This programme prepares you for a career as either a policy maker or manager in an organisation that deals with complex, international public issues, such as global warming, trade, peace and security, or human rights. The programme is a very practical, hands-on programme, where you"ll learn by doing. In the first two years, you"ll learn the fundamentals, developing the skills and knowledge you"ll actually need in your career. But you"ll spend quite a lot of your time actually working on team projects, solving problems drawn from real life scenarios.

In the final two years of your programme, you'll have to apply everything you've learned and practiced on a work placement, or job, for a real organisation. So you"ll graduate with two years of experience already behind you. You choose your minors, your work placement and your thesis subject, so you can customize your final two years to your own ambitions and career goals.

In the last two years, specialisations include areas such as [but not limited to]:

- European Public Management
- Globalisation, with sub-specialisations in:
- Globalisation, Governance and Governments
- International Law
