In the last two years of their studies, students will delve deeper into their training and enhance their employability through three Official Specialization Concentrations: Economics and Business, Law and Diplomacy, and Foreign Policy and Security. The modules on each plan correspond to specific professional profiles (diplomatic service, international business management, and security and defense analysis).
