The Managing International Relations course is aimed at university students, young professionals and experienced workers. Participants build up a toolkit which they can use to better understand, analyze and manage international relations. Those who are already working, or are getting ready to work, in an international environment face a number of key challenges. They have to endeavor to understand the major international political economic and security dynamics in order to be able to forecast the direction they will take in the future.
