What is an MPA International Public Affairs Management?
An MPA in International Public Affairs Management is a specialized education program with a 5-year degree that allows students to deepen their knowledge of the modes of governance of public institutions and international public policy organizations.
The evolution of diplomatic relations, global power relations, the emergence of new forms of diplomacy and the proliferation of new issues has led the CEDS to imagine new degree programs specialized in these issues. Over the course of an academic year, students are introduced to the history and new doctrines of these themes while putting their knowledge into practice. Led by experts, these programs give everyone the opportunity to build an international network and gain expertise on high-stakes issues.
